I'm seeing URLs in my log files and Google search console where a user/bot has entered the event page URL as just the event ID followed by .html. For example:
Preferred URL: www.paintouts.com/all-events/event/29-plein-air-easton.html
They both work but the second version causes "duplicate" pages in my stats and google search console. I could create a 301 redirect for every event back to the preferred version but that will get tedious. So two questions:
1) Any idea how these are being generated? If you visit my site, it always returns the longer version URL so I don't even know how the shortened formats are being discovered to begin with.
2) Is there a way to tell JEM to not allow the shortened version or to force a redirect automatically to the full URL?
Any help would be appreciated. Site is Joomla 3.8.10 with JEM 2.2.3
