    Running Sitefinity 8.2, pure MVC, Bootstrap, have blog posts appearing on a page with the delivered MVC blog post widget, set to show detail view in the same page.  The page is top-level and has this URL:

    https://domain.com/blogs

    The URL for individual posts is in this form:

    https://domain.com/blogs/blog-name/yyyy/mm/dd/blog-post-name

    The site has the canonical URL service turned on (I've even set it enabled on this page) and a <link rel="canonical" href="..."> element does appear in the head.  However, every post has the same href in the link element:

    https://domain.com/blogs

    I read on another thread: "By default Sitefinity does not recognize content displayed using custom widgets unless they implement the IContentLocatableView interface."

    http://www.sitefinity.com/developer-network/forums/developing-with-sitefinity-/a-few-questions-about-canonical-urls#B3fI6gV5ukGsvlLqCcAofQ

    However, in this case it's not a custom widget, it's the delivered MVC blog post widget.

    Is there something else we have to do to get this working properly?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello,

    This is known issue in the 8.2 build-in version of Feather. It is fixed in Feather 1.4.370. In order to get this work as expected, you can upgrade your Feather module to at least that version, or the latest comparable with version 8.2 - 1.4.460.0.
    Alternatively you can upgrade your Sitefinity project, which comes with higher version of Feather module.
