To force Magento to use the full product path, you need to change the settings in the Magento backend. Here's how:

  1. Log in to the Magento backend
  2. Go to Stores > Settings > Configuration
  3. In the left-side menu, navigate to Catalog > Catalog
  4. Under the Search Engine Optimizations section, set "Use Categories Path for Product URLs" to "Yes".
  5. Save the changes by clicking the "Save Config" button.


This will ensure that Magento uses the full product path in the URLs, including the categories, for your products.

Additionally, you may also want to update the product URL keys to include the full product path. To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Go to the Magento backend and navigate to Catalog > Products.
  2. Select the product you want to edit or create a new product.
  3. In the product edit page, scroll down to the URL Key field.
  4. By default, Magento generates the URL Key based on the product name. To include the full product path, you will need to manually modify the URL Key. For example, if your category structure is "Parent Category > Child Category" and the product is named "Example Product," you can set the URL Key to something like "parent-category/child-category/example-product".
  5. Make sure the URL Key is unique, as duplicate URL Keys may cause issues.
  6. Save the product changes.


By following these steps, you are forcing Magento to use the full product path in the URLs by both enabling the option in the configuration settings and modifying the URL Key for each product.

Yes, exactly. Updating the URL Key to include the full product path will ensure that the product URLs reflect the complete category structure.
