Kunena 5.2 Beta 1 Released (24 Sep 2020)

The Kunena team is thrilled to announce the first public beta release of Kunena 5.2, a native Joomla extension for Joomla 3.9. This is a development release and should be only be used for testing; this version is not recommended for live websites at this stage.

The purpose of this release is to encourage testing by downloading, installing and identifying any problems or shortcomings that people may discover. K 5.2.0 B1 is stable and we are aware that people will discover defects. We encourage you to use the forum to report defects, as soon as they are discovered, so that the development team can work through the problems before the release of K 5.1 as a stable product. Reporting defects does not mean that the problems can or will be fixed. The Kunena team is looking forward to hearing your feedback on how well we have achieved our design goals.

Question Forum uses two different URLs

8 years 3 months ago - 8 years 3 months ago #1 by btealtn
Hi. I've been working on SEO issues on my site ( www.MusicCityMoms.net ) and discovered that Google is indexing two copies of my forum because of the URLs. The top-level menu is Discussions. Some of the menu URLs resolve to Discussions and others go to Forum.

The menu is set up like this:

(top-level) Discussions - Kunena Forum >> Entry Page - alias: discussions - resolves to forum/index
(sub-menu) Recent Posts - Kunena Forum >> Recent - alias: recent-posts - resolves to discussions/recent-posts
(sub-menu) Category Listing - Kunena Forum >> Entry Page - alias: category-listing - resolves to forum/index
(sub-menu) Edit Profile - Kunena Forum >> User Profile - alias: edit-profile - resolves to discussions/edit-profile

I'd like them all to be the same. It really doesn't matter to me which one is kept (forum or discussions), whichever makes the most sense and is easier to accomplish. Can you please help me figure out how to make them all the same?

My follow-up question, then, is how can I keep the other link available, maybe using a hidden menu item, but not allow it to be indexed by search engines (no-follow)? There are a lot of links back to forum topics, using both the forum url and the discussions url, and I don't want to render them dead links.

Thank you for the assistance.

I'm using Joomla 1.5 and Kunena 1.7. Here is the configuration report:
