How to set 2 different URLs for the same product?


Recommended Posts

Hi there,

The product has different categories. And it is displayed on each category page.

For example, product-1 has category-1, category-2, category-3. But the default category is "category-1". So the link to this product will be https://site.com/category-1/product-1.

But I need to set a link to the product depends on the category page from where this product is opened.

So if I open category-2 page the link to this product needs to be https://site.com/category-2/product-1.

If I open category-3 page the link to this product needs to be https://site.com/category-3/product-1.

And I need to have all these links to be working. How can I do it?

Because when I open a link https://site.com/category-2/product-1 it redirects me to the default link - https://site.com/category-1/product-1.

Thanks.

A basic assumption from a SEO point of view is that there should not be duplicate content, that's why it should be hard to achieve something like this, only by some custom module overriding default code. By default prestashop uses product's default category to build a link.

Yes, I tried to set another default category for building a link - it works. But when I use this new link it redirects me to the default product link (using default product category). Where do I need to update this functionality?

Regarding duplicate content - I use category name in the product title, description and breadcrumbs - that's why they will be different.

Here my settings on Traffic & SEO page for product link - {category:/}{rewrite}.html

And here the category is used as default. And the link to the product will be like this - https://site.com/category-1/product-1.

When I open this link https://site.com/category-2/product-1 the site redirects me to https://site.com/category-1/product-1. But I need to have this link https://site.com/category-2/product-1 also working. I understand that I need to do some changes to the source code. But I can't find where exactly.
