Hello,

In my home page I have the "latest post" module from Kunena forum. When I see the url of these posts I can see that they add an "/unread" at the end.

I am a real ignorant in the subject, but I do realize that this url

domain.com/foro/blah-blah-1235160/unread

and ths url

domain.com/foro/blah-blah-1235160

are not the same.

Can this affect SEO? coudl this be taken as duplicate content?

yes, this does affect SEO, and I dont think there should be an /unread suffix for guests who are viewing the forum but cannot post. I think this feature should only be available for registered users.

I agree. It makes sense that only registered users would need this.

Ideas?

no its not. Its added inside kunena, so its not possible to change the url with htaccess.

I am having the same problem with urls to topics having '/list' appened to them. I have tried enabling and disabling the kunena menu; enabling and disabling the flat/threaded/ optiions; and writing htaccess rules. This is very annoying, because I had a solution which worked on Kunean 1, but nothing seems to make any difference now.

Hello,

Do-you use latest versions of Kunena and module kunena latest ?

I don't provide support by PM, because this can be useful for someone else.

Yes this is 3.0.7, but but maybe the developers haven't spotted the problem because the '*/unread' and '*/link' URIs don't normally show up for admin.

The way I know they are there for guests is because I ran a web crawler on the site to check all links (I like linkchecker by Bastian Kleineidam).

A crawler reveals at least one null URL for every post, which is what search engines would see, and some guests would see too.

Really the standard solution for this problem is to use a query string for different views: '*?kunenaView=unread" rather than extending the URL itself.
