Hello,

in order to exclude [ External links are visible to forum administrators only ] URLs, you should add this in bot "Do not parse" and "Exclude URLs":

Code: [ External links are visible to forum administrators only ]
this=

Ok thanks for the help on excluding these type of links - [ External links are visible to forum administrators only ].

What about the first part of my question, excluding normal links that end in html?

Like this link - blah.html. I have put this in the exclude box in many different ways, ie:

blah.html
/blah.html
folder/blah.html

Anyway I put it it still ends being crawled and placed in the sitemap.

Ok I have added this link - [ External links are visible to forum administrators only ] - to the Do not Parse  and Exclude Urls bot and it is still being added to my sitemap. I have tried many configurations like;
[ External links are visible to forum administrators only ]
[ External links are visible to forum administrators only ]
/?this=1
?this=1
/?this=
?this=

They are not excluded

There are 46 of these numbered sequentially. I don't even know what these links are, they don't exist on my web site.

Use this exclusion string:
Code: [ External links are visible to forum administrators only ]
.html

You should add the following for that:

Use this exclusion string:
Code: [ External links are visible to forum administrators only ]
.html
That isn't a solution. if I add that then all my links ending in .html are excluded. I only want to exclude certain links.

This solution didn't work either. What are these links? ( this=1, this=2. etc ). Like I said they don't exist in my website and are being generated by the Sitemap Generator.

Sitemap Generator doesn't create ANY links at your website, it only finds existing ones.
