Hi People!

Currently optimizing my first Wordpress site for SEO to get all the technical aspects right. Obviously I'm running into some problems and insecurities.

Issue is as follows:

http://website.com/page/custompost/ > this should be the canonical

When typing http://website.com/custompost > automatically switches to > http://website.com/page/custompost/

Same when typing:

and so on....

Other info:
• Using self-hosted Wordpress
• Using SEO Yoast
• Using the CPT UI plugin

Is this SEO Yoast automatically 301-redirecting or is this a duplicate content issue? Or why does this happen? Shouldn't a http://website.com/cu just get a 404?

Thanks in advance!
