Hello everyone
i'm having troubles with an eshop of mine, and i don't know how to fix it.
if you look here http://www.ilovebike.it/shop you'll see the normal website.
the problem is that you also will if you go to http://www.ilovebike.it/shop/shop and so on.
i noticed that the online demo at http://demo.cs-cart.com/professional/ also works like this.
is there any way to avoid this, since i fear that is not exactly "seo friendly"?

thank you

I'm not sure how you would implement it as I've only started using CS Cart a couple of weeks ago, but I would say that if you can add a canonical link then there should be no problem with SEO as the page will be treated as the same one page.

Huh, that is different. My site doesn't do this and this is the first time I've seen it. I also can't seem to duplicate it on the demo.

The first thing I'd do is check that your config.local.php is set up correctly. You should have something like:

// Host and directory where software is installed on no-secure server
$config['http_host'] = 'www.ilovebike.it';
$config['http_path'] = '/shop';

// Host and directory where software is installed on secure server
$config['https_host'] = 'www.ilovebike.it';
$config['https_path'] = '/shop';

This is assuming that your shop is really supposed to be in the /shop directory.

Beyond that, I'm not really sure. Maybe someone else will chime in.

I have tested this on the demo and these url's will replicate the issue:-


It only seems to be a problem if your store is not in your web root.
All above will give same home page, maybe an issue with the SEO module?
