Sitemap links differ from actual Joomla links 2 Years, 10 Months ago Karma: 0  
Hi, there is a slight issue on my JSitemap Pro installation.

Joomla 3.7.4 multilingual
PHP 7
MySQL 5.6
Data source: Menu

Actual Joomla link: https://MYDOMAIN.COM/en/products/32-ironing-equipment
JSitemap link: https://MYDOMAIN.COM/en/products/ironing-equipment (it is missing the category ID!)

Please advise, I have tried various settings without any success...

Hi, probably you are misunderstanding something.

This link: https://MYDOMAIN.COM/en/products/32-ironing-equipment
is not a Joomla menu link, the ID 32 means that it's a content link and not a menu link.

This is a menu link: https://MYDOMAIN.COM/en/products/ironing-equipment
and if you have linked that category to the menu it's correctly included in the sitemap by the data source 'Menu'

Moreover the sitemap should contain ONLY the canonical link that is https://MYDOMAIN.COM/en/products/ironing-equipment the other one with the numeric ID is wrong from a SEO perspective.

You could include it in the sitemap activating the 'linkable cats' parameter inside the 'content' data source, but i advice to not use it, it's better as it is now.

Hi John, thanks for the quick reply.

I must apologize here.

Your post made me search through the website menu and thanks to this I discovered that several [hidden] menu items were incorrect, thus causing this issue.

As soon as I fixed these menu items JSitemap links worked perfectly, as they do in all my other websites.

Thank you for your time.
