I have a store with few categories. I want to have only one url for each product - domain.com/product_name.html. I don't want to have products URLs with the category path in them.

I set “Use Categories Path for Product URLs” to "NO", but when I am saving any category it is creating the Catalog URL Rewrites for all the products of that category i.e. one regular url (domain.com/product_name.html) and one for each category path (domain.com/category_path1/product_name.html)


Magento Version: 2.1.5

This is how it works. The setting “Use Categories Path for Product URLs” to "NO" will work as expected on every page(Shopping cart, Recently viewed, Crosssell/upsell, wishlist etc) except product listing page.

  • I have tested this right now but on shopping cart page same product url showing (domain.com/category_path1/product_name.html) which is unexpected. – Nitesh Mar 13 '18 at 9:55
  • run indexing, clear cache. – Shireen N Mar 13 '18 at 10:07
  • There is no url_rewrite indexer in magento 2 but still did reindexing and clean as well as flushed magento cache, nothing changed. – Nitesh Mar 13 '18 at 12:13
  • This setting not working on Product Listing pages makes no sense. That's the only place I would expect it to have any effect. Did you figure anything out with this? I have this setting turned off too yet it's still generating rewrites I don't want. – BrianVPS Sep 27 '18 at 20:18
