Somehow generator keeps going multiple levels over and over
« on: January 25, 2011, 07:04:44 AM »
My site is www.theshrimpfarm.com, and when running the sitemap generator, it just keep running and running, multiple levels over and over.

For example, one page will show up with the following url's somehow:

http://www.theshrimpfarm.com/shrimp/red-cherry-shrimp.php
http://www. theshrimpfarm.com/shrimp/red-cherry-shrimp.php (exact same url shows for a second time but with a different title in the sitemap)
http://www. theshrimpfarm.com/shrimp/shrimp/red-cherry-shrimp.php/
http://www. theshrimpfarm.com/shrimp/shrimp/shrimp/red-cherry-shrimp.php/

And it would just keep going like this until the max number of levels has reached....
Any idea what is going on here? Something with .htaccess?

.htaccess has this line:
Redirect 301 /shrimp/red-cherry-shrimp/ http://www.theshrimpfarm.com/shrimp/red-cherry-shrimp.php

Hello,

you can add this in Exclude URLs setting to avoid that:
shrimp/shrimp

Thank you, that does work for those urls. However, it does it in different places too where it makes this harder. For example, it adds links to the sitemap that are forwarded with .htaccess.

http://www.theshrimpfarm.com/blue_pearl_shrimp.shtml is forwarded to http://www.theshrimpfarm.com/shrimp/blue-pearl-shrimp.php. But it adds both to the sitemap....

It also adds many links that are old, but don't exist at all anymore....
