#3951 closed defect (fixed)

Support forum index 'views' (e.g., tag indexes, popular posts, etc) lack canonical URL tags

Reported by: jonoaldersonwp Owned by: SergeyBiryukov
Milestone: Priority: high
Component: Support Forums Keywords: seo


URLs like https://wordpress.org/support/topic-tag/cats/ should feature a canonical URL tag.

Note that the canonical URL value should include pagination when present. e.g:

-https://wordpress.org/support/topic-tag/cats/page/2/?someVar=true should have a canonical URL tag of https://wordpress.org/support/topic-tag/cats/page/2/.

-https://wordpress.org/support/plugin/network-shared-media/active/ should have a canonical URL tag of https://wordpress.org/support/plugin/network-shared-media/active/.
