Joomla - Menus and dupe content
Will pointing to the same article twice in a menu cause a dupe content pen?

There are a couple of articles in a site that I am working on where I might want to point to the same article under two different menu items.

ie

Red widgets
- Building red widgets

Tips and tricks
- Building red widgets

Thanks..

It shouldn't, as long as the URL is exactly the same.

Use the "Alias" option when you setup the second menu item - this will ensure that if you ever change the location of the first link the second will follow suit as it is just an alias of the first. Hope that makes sense!

And if you are using any URL rewrite thing, you probably want to use the alias of the article anyway, so doesn't matter which menu item points to the article, the url is always the same: the alias of the article.
