# Automatic Canonical Path

This feature provides a default value to the router for the canonical path based on the last parts of the page path.

## Configuration

If the configuration MinimalNamesCountForAutomaticCanonical has a value of:

• 0 disable this feature
• 1 will create a canonical with the first last name part
• 2 will create a canonical with the last two name parts
• For small website, this configuration is set to 1
• For bigger website, this configuration is set to 2

To have a value above 2 is not really common and should be avoided.
