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 Duplicate content on forum. SEO problem.

Hi, everyone.
I've installed Kunena 4.10, and meet following SEO problem.
Below i describe usual structure of Kunena settings.
I have
- ParentCategory (alias i.e. "parentcategory-alias")
--Subforum1 (alias i.e. "subforum1-alias")
--Subforum2 (alias i.e. "subforum2-alias")
--Subforum3 (alias i.e. "subforum3-alias")

Also i have "Kunena Menu", where i must choose alias for "Kunena forum" -> "Main page". i.e. alias - "forum".

The problem IS:
I can access the same pages from different url-s, so i have doubles, that not good for SEO.
For example main page of forum can be accessed via 3 url-s
- site.com/forum.html
- site.com/parentcategory-alias.html
- site.com/forum/parentcategory-alias.html
also pages of subforums - accesible via
- site.com/forum/subforum1-alias.html and
- site.com/parentcategory-alias/subforum1-alias.html

I took brief look at THIS forum.
- www.kunena.org/forum/
- www.kunena.org/forum/index
leads to the "same page for user, but different pages for search crawler"

I readdress it via .htaccess
Redirect 301 /forum/parentcategory-alias.html /forum.html
Redirect 301 /parentcategory-alias.html /forum.html
RewriteRule ^parentcategory-alias/(.+)$ site.com/forum/$1 [R=301,L]

The question is:
Is the internal settings for removing doubles of content? Or maybe some "Proper workflow", that i missed?
