    I use joomla zoo do the product display page, but the url like this :domain/category/product。html?category=id

    And if I input the url without "category=id" also display the same page , so I think "this category=id" is useless, the url is not friendly to search engine.

    so how to remove this "category=id"?

    Leckie,

    This may vary based on the version of Joomla you are using but it should be relatively the same.

    Log into your backend, go to global configuration under "site". On the right hand side you should see a radio button that allows you to toggle search engine friendly URLs on and off.

    Note that sometimes toggling this on can cause problems. For instance your site may not load anymore. IF this happens, you can fix it in .htaccess by turning on mod_rewrite.

    Here is more info on how to do that,

    Best,
