Is there a valid reason why for blog layout categories duplicate urls are generated in JoomSEF?

1a SEF url: reisshop/rondreis
1a Real url: index.php?option=com_content&id=129&layout=blog&view=category&Itemid=1192

1b SEF url: reisshop/rondreis
1b Real url: index.php?option=com_content&id=129&view=category&Itemid=1192

and since I am using ATOM & RSS, it happens for those urls as well

2a SEF url: reisshop/rondreis/atom
2a Real url: index.php?option=com_content&format=feed&id=129&layout=blog&type=atom&view=category&Itemid=1192

2b SEF url: reisshop/rondreis/atom
2b Real url: index.php?option=com_content&format=feed&id=129&type=atom&view=category&Itemid=1192

The 2nd url which is generated does not contain the layout=blog parameter. Using both different real urls shows the same result: the page in blog layout.

This is causing a huge extra amount of unneccesary url in the sitemap, extra dbase space etc. Can this be solved with config? Am I doing something wrong here?

I am using Joomla 3.3.3 with JoomSEF 4.5.2. Have this issue over half a year already (also with earlier versions)
Duplicate URL's for ...

It looks like that since one of the last update ()not sure!), JoomSEF is generating duplicate urls for categories incl. RSS and ATOM urls. Example


  1. sef url = contact-info > real url = index.php?option=com_content&id=106&layout=blog&view=category&Itemid=932
  2. sef url = contact-info > real url = index.php?option=com_content&id=106&view=category&Itemid=932



Both urls point to the same category. URL nr. 1 contains 'layout=blog'. SEO-wise nothing goes wrong except from the fact that the sitemap contains a double url that is pickup by Google.

If I delete both, empty cache, both will appear soon again.To avoid duplicates with RSS and ATOM urls I already added the 'format=feed' in the field 'Do not SEF URLs matching regular expression' in the content extentsion but I assume this is not how JoomSEF is supposed to work.

Anyone an idea what I could do to prevent duplicate urls in JoomSEF? Is it config? I experience this on 2 different websites by the way. Both Joomla 2.5.17 and JoomSEF 4.5.1 (1 is the paid version, the other is the free version).

Can you check the fileright (UID and GUI). 644 is supposed to be fine but in some cases (bad server config I heard) it is not enough. Try and check with file permission 777 (just for test of course)

Ok, it is older than a year. Did not know that extension expire. Can't find the order nr anymore anyway. Should it be visible in 'my account'? I did not get a email notification of your reply by the way. Is that possible?

Ah hold on. I might have understood you wrong before. You just pressed the "generate sitemap" button only? Please first try to "index" some url's. Checkbox the url's you would like to have in your sitemap. Make sure that the dropdownlist at the top is mentioning "Index" and press "Proceed" on the right side of the dropdownlist.

After a few second you get a similar notification as you had before. Now press "Generate XML". And the checkboxed (and indexed) url's should be in your sitemap.

For some reason the lastmod date does not change after I update an article. Instead it seems that it is using the creation date.

Using an external sitemap generator and getting an empty sitemap.xml could be caused by a setting in robots.txt setting. Are you sure that JoomSEF and the external generator are allowed to access your site urls?

A while ago I bought the Phoca Gallery extension 2.0.1. After one of the JoomSEF upgrades (i think). It does not work anymore. Furthermore JoomSEF says that my Download extension ID is not valid. Can you please help me out?
