Hi, I use the pro version in a catalogue site, made with Phoca cart.
www.lanuovasartoria.it
If I enable the automatic creation of canonicals, the same product belonging to several categories is displayed with different urls.

Example:
Main product
www.lanuovasartoria.it/atelier-donna/10-abd1

Other category links referencing the same product.
www.lanuovasartoria.it/atelier-donna/2-abito/10-abd1
www.lanuovasartoria.it/atelier-donna/2-abito/3-corto/10-abd1
www.lanuovasartoria.it/atelier-donna/9-colore/13-bianco/10-abd1

This leads to duplicate content.

I ask for your opinion. Is it better for SEO to deactivate the automatic generation of canonicals, letting google choose the best one?
Other alternatives?
Thank you

Hi
this is a complicated question
in this case, do you know what would the relevant url ? the one that should be used as canonical

if you don't use a canonical tag at all, you still have some duplicate content. THe best would be to manage the situation and add the correct canonical tag

Ok, file replaced and plugin restarted.

The canonical tag appear correct but the document root is missing

example

canonical
/atelier-donna/10-abd1

Must be
lnsv2.sviluppo.host/atelier-donna/10-abd1
