Html Sitemap duplication problem
« on: December 01, 2006, 04:38:33 AM »
Hello,

I really love this program and it was well worth the money to buy it and you did a great job on getting back to me with a previous issue. However it appears as though my html sitemap gets the hiccups in my forum and keeps repeating the results over and over again on my sitemaps page.

Any idea how I can resolve this problem?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Hello,

this happens because of session id appended to URL by your forum:
phpBB/faq.php?sid=f3df4ddcdf6d1c9345f790ec9652870f

You should manually modify your generator/config.inc.php file:
FIND:
Code: [Select]
'xs_cleanurls'=>'',
REPLACE WITH:
Code: [Select]
'xs_cleanurls'=>'#[\\?&]sid=.+#',

Hello,

I tried what you outlined to change in my config file but the line of code wasn't even in there to begin with so I just added it and the problem is still there.

Any other solutions? Or am I doing something incorrectly.

Please try to create .htaccess file in your phpBB folder with this content:
Code: [Select]
php_flag session.use_trans_sid off

The issue appears since your forum appends session id to URLs, causing endless number of URLs.
Could you please send me a private message with ftp access to find possible workaround?
