How to get subdirectory indexed?
« on: April 07, 2006, 05:50:12 AM »
I have phpBB installed in a subdirectory, "forums".

How can I get the script to index the files in the main website and in the "forums" subdirectory?

  • If I configure the Starting URL as [external links are visible to admins only] - the "forums" subdirectory does not get indexed.
  • If it's setup for [external links are visible to admins only] - the main website directory isn't indexed.
Any ideas?

Great script BTW!  :)

Hello,

you should add the link to the forums from your homepage to let the crawler find your forum subfolder :)

Thanks!

The link to the subfolder is already there. Any other ideas?

Thanks

Hi!

Hm, it should be indexed then. Don't you have it excluded in sitemap generator options or robots.txt?

Please send me in Private Message your generator instance URL.
Thanks!

I've figured it out. I had a 301 redirection in the .htaccess file from forum/ to forums - I changed the latter to forums/index.php (also in the website) and it now works.
