We recently discovered that these canonical URLs (ending in /2, /3, /4, etc for each new reply with a topic) are having some negative impacts on the quality of our site because Google is still indexing and showing the /2, /3 and /4 at times when it shouldn't. As more pages get created, more and more of these URLs get created too.
Is there any way to stop these additional "pages" from showing as a user scrolls down the page? Perhaps even set up redirects from /1, /2, and /3 back to the base post (and if there isn't a way, could this functionality be created in the next update)? This would help get rid of the many poor (and basically duplicate) URLs that are being created.
I originally thought it was a cool feature for NodeBB to have, and it's probably great for some forums that don't care about SEO... but given the negative impact it can have on the overall quality of a website (in Google's eyes), it would be very helpful (critical, even) to have the ability to turn this feature off.
