    Hello,

    when using the page-loop option (in my case on landingpage-template), the canonical on every paginated page like 2, 3 and so on, are targeting to the first page, which is bad for SEO, because google won’t indexing these paginated pages, when they referring to page 1.

    As far as i know, there are 2 ways, how a paginated pages should set up:

    1. using canonicals for first page and further pages, where the canoncial is always self-referring

    PAGE1 URL: https://www.domain.com/news/
    PAGE1 Canonical: <link rel=”canonical” href=”https://www.domain.com/news/” />

    PAGE3 URL: https://www.domain.com/news/page/3/
    PAGE3 Canonical: <link rel=”canonical” href=”https://www.domain.com/news/page/3/” />

    or 2. using canonical only for the first page, rel=”next” and rel=”prev” for further pages

    PAGE1 URL: https://www.domain.com/news/
    PAGE1 Canonical: <link rel=”canonical” href=”https://www.domain.com/news/” />

    PAGE3:
    <LINK rel=”next” href=”http://www.mysite.com/news/page/4/”>
    <LINK rel=”prev” href=”http://www.mysite.com/news/page/2/”>
    <LINK rel=”canonical” href=”http://www.mysite.com/news/page/3/”>

    Thank you for fixing this.
    Regards, Dennis

    Hi dennis,

    Regarding this issue, can you please try to disable all plugins except required plugin that related to JNews?

    Actually, we using the way number 1 as you mention on above. You can check on our demo here https://jnews.io/default/page/2/. Here’s the result https://www.dropbox.com/s/1xubx5zexyzav3w/Screenshot%202018-12-10%2017.20.22.png?dl=0
