canonical plugin joomla

The joomla article url's show the article id, the category and the section. This leads to canonical issues whenever the section or category changes. Same problem when a section/category menu is added or a site switches from non-SEF to SEF url's.


The article canonical plugin will put a canonical link in the header of the document, pointing search engine's to the right location:


<link href="" rel="canonical" />


Joomla 2.5


Joomla 1.5


Joomla 3.x has its own canonical system.
