I found a different solution to this problem.

For me, I found /category/id appearing at the end of some product url's. It turned out this was because I had the same product across multiple stores (which is fine), but the url under 'search engine optimisation' needed to be set within the specific store scope on each product and not just the products default scope.

On a product with this issue:

  • cope the desired url fromSearch engine optimisation
  • change scope to the store
  • paste in search engine optimisation
  • tick to create a URL rewrite
  • Save

You can try setting use category path for product url to no. You will find this option here:

Admin - System – Configuration – Catalog – Catalog - Search Engine Optimisations – selecting No in Use Categories Path for Product URL

After that try flushing cache and reindexing

Hope it helps!!
