Excluding URLS/Strings
« on: February 03, 2008, 06:00:24 PM »
Hi

I am trying to exclude from the crawl the following:

[ External links are visible to forum administrators only ]
[ External links are visible to forum administrators only ]
[ External links are visible to forum administrators only ]

Many different numbers after the = sign, you get the picture :)

I added to the exclude URL's the follwoing:
[ External links are visible to forum administrators only ]

2 problems

1. it still crawls all the URLS
2. when i get back to the Config section the Exclude URL section is empty,, so if i wanted to Cron it, i couldent keep the settings.

Has any one encountered similar problem or has an advice?

Good luck with the ranking.

Rudi

Hello,

you should add this to BOTH "Do not parse" and "Exclude URLs" options:

Code: [ External links are visible to forum administrators only ]
cart.php?add=

2. when i get back to the Config section the Exclude URL section is empty,, so if i wanted to Cron it, i couldent keep the settings.
Do you mean that options are not saved when you reload the config screen again? Make sure that file persmissions are set accordingly for config.inc.php file (0666).
