My webshop is not displaying the canonical product url's with the category path.

I have "Use category path for Product URL's" enabled in the backend but it doesn't seem to work.

Would anybody have any suggestions on where to look?

This is Magentos default behaviour.

Because a product can belong to more than one category and magento doesn't know the concept of a "main category" for a product, there is no way to get the "correct" category for the path.

Therefore the path is always without category.

Fixing this means installing an extension or coding it yourself.
