TOPIC: Avoid Category View via URL

Avoid Category View via URL 6 years, 10 months ago #44122

Hi there,

if I enter
http://www.my-joomla-site.com/index.php?option=com_content&id=93&view=category


into my browser, I end up with a category view / blog layout of all my articles listed in the category "Uncategorised".
JoomSEF automatically creates a SEF URL based on the alias for the Uncategorised category. And Google search enginge picks up all of these pages ...

On my site, there's absolutely no use for the blog layout view of all uncategorised articles and I have no menu item linking to them. So I'm wondering why they show up anyway. Does Joomla automatically allow access to blog layout view of all available categories if I just know the according cat ID # and enter is as an URL? If so - how can I avoid this?

Not quite sure if this problem is related to JoomSEF or Joomla itself, so - any helpful input is highly appreciated anyway!

Cheers.
