Reminder sent to: tjungcl


Could you please give some examples in which cases you have links with plain-params to cms pages?

In your demoshop I only found one:
in checkout step 4 (order) the agbs are opened in a popup.
The <a> tag has nofollow set, but we all know, that google doesnt care.
Furthermore the link is in the checkout, which google should never reach.

The plain-mode is a very usefull feature, which we use to show the shipping-cost information in the detail view in a popup (instead of leaving the page as you do in the example template).

So if shopowners make use of your plain-mode feature, it will happen that google indexes those pages seperatly (as it happened on our page).

The behaviour of current shop versions is correct. The canonical URL points to the page without plain parameter set. So this should be no issue.
