I am cloning some similar products. Perhaps I should have left the name out before I cloned, but when I clone and then change the name and then the auto generated SEO name a checkbox with the question "Redirect from previous URL?" appears which is defaulted to "checked". Do I want to leave this checked? Doesn't sound right in this case.

Thanks for any insights.

no, otherwise it will redirect your old url to your new product

Thanks. I might have left some checked. Is there some way I can regenerate that URL? If there's no easy way to regenerate I'm thinking of exporting the affected products as a CSV and re-importing should work. Correct? (Before re-importing I would be sure to delete the products I just exported.)

Thanks for any insights.
