Settings For SMF (Simple Machines Forum) ?
« on: October 22, 2011, 06:33:29 PM »

Is there a list of the settings needed for a SMF forum. I have 390 URLs and when I run A1 it is generating over 1800. So I guess there are options to seletec that will bring it down the correct number.

My website is http://doomcafe.org

A1SG will respect robots.txt, so you can set it up to block various parts for crawlers:

You can also configure output and analysis filters to exclude website areas.

Do also note that SMF has lots of duplicate URLs that uses canonical. While A1 Sitemap Generator will show you these URLs after website scan, the finished HTML sitemap or XML sitemap will *not* contain such URLs that through canonical meta tag refer to another "master" URL. (This can explain the difference you see.)

I believe hat next version of A1 Sitemap Generator will contain a website scan "preset" for SMF. (Will probably default to leaving out e.g. profile pages etc.)

Just to let everyone know, version 3.3.5 of A1SG includes more website scan configuration presets that makes it a snap to configure A1SG for optimal results with various website forum/CMS/blog platforms :)
