Double hreflang



I have installed a module that is great for multistore as it let me indicate which store version belongs to a specific language-country, so I can avoid duplicate content.

It creates a code like this:

    <link rel="alternate" hreflang="es-es" href="https://www.lesielle.com/es/" />
        <link rel="alternate" hreflang="fr-fr" href="https://www.lesielle.com/fr/" />
        <link rel="alternate" hreflang="fr-ch" href="https://www.lesielle.com/ch/fr/" />
        <link rel="alternate" hreflang="de-ch" href="https://www.lesielle.com/ch/de/" />
        <link rel="alternate" hreflang="de-de" href="https://www.lesielle.com/de/" />
        <link rel="alternate" hreflang="en-gb" href="https://www.lesielle.com/uk/" />
        <link rel="alternate" hreflang="es" href="https://www.lesielle.com/int/es/" />
        <link rel="alternate" hreflang="en" href="https://www.lesielle.com/int/en/" />
        <link rel="alternate" hreflang="fr" href="https://www.lesielle.com/int/fr/" />
        <link rel="alternate" hreflang="de" href="https://www.lesielle.com/int/de/" />
        <link rel="alternate" hreflang="en-us" href="https://www.lesielle.com/us/

But it seems also TB (I suppose it is TB) is creating alternative code for each language (not stores, only languages of the ACTUAL store. Even more, it indicate languages that are not being used in the actual store but they are activated in other stores):

How can I deactivate this code generation? Is less complete (doesn't include other stores) and also include information that it is not relevant (not activated languages)

NOTE: just to avoid misunderstood, /es/ is a store in the subdomain /es/, not Spanish language

This is what I deleted:

public function getHrefLang($entity, $idItem, $languages, $idLangDefault) { $links = []; foreach ($languages as $lang) { switch ($entity) { case 'product': $lnk = $this->context->link->getProductLink((int) $idItem, null, null, null, $lang['idlang']); break; case 'category': $lnk = $this->context->link->getCategoryLink((int) $idItem, null, $lang['idlang']); break; case 'manufacturer': if (!$idItem) { $lnk = $this->context->link->getPageLink('manufacturer', null, $lang['idlang']); } else { $lnk = $this->context->link->getManufacturerLink((int) $idItem, null, $lang['idlang']); } break; case 'supplier': if (!$idItem) { $lnk = $this->context->link->getPageLink('supplier', null, $lang['idlang']); } else { $lnk = $this->context->link->getSupplierLink((int) $idItem, null, $lang['idlang']); } break; case 'cms': $lnk = $this->context->link->getCMSLink((int) $idItem, null, null, $lang['idlang']); break; case 'cmscategory': $lnk = $this->context->link->getCMSCategoryLink((int) $idItem, null, $lang['idlang']); break; default: $lnk = $this->context->link->getPageLink($entity, null, $lang['idlang']); break; }

        // append page number
        if ($p = Tools::getValue('p')) {
            $lnk .= "?p=$p";

        $links[] = '<link rel="alternate" href="'.$lnk.'" hreflang="'.$lang['language_code'].'">';
        if ($lang['id_lang'] == $idLangDefault) {
            $links[] = '<link rel="alternate" href="'.$lnk.'" hreflang="x-default">';

    return $links;

I would make on override if I were you. Try this one:

``` class FrontController extends FrontControllerCore {

public function getHrefLang($entity, $idItem, $languages, $idLangDefault)
    return null;

} ```

Save it under \override\controllers\front\FrontController.php

Dont forget to delete \cache\class_index.php on your server.
