How To Remove Duplicate manufacturers_id URL Pages?


Recommended Posts

Hello: I am new to OSCommerce.


I'm working on a site that has an issue where Duplicate pages are being created for products. One URL contains the just the product id (product_info.php?products_id=) & the other contains the product id + manufactures ID (product_info.php?manufacturers_id=0&products_id=).


I want the manufactures ID pages to stop being created as it is creating a duplicate content issue. Does anyone know of a fix for this?

Any help on this would be greatly appreciated. I am not sure what file to even look in.


These duplicate product listings w/ the manufacturers id in the URL are not being linked to from anywhere on the site. It can't be a simple as just deleting the manufacturers I don't believe b/c the site does use them as sub categories for products.

Is it an extenstion that causes this? There appears to be a file called url_rewrite.php, but my understanding is that particular extension does something different, which is not active as the URLs are numeric, not text.
