Add noindex to the header

Submitted by Vifil on Wed, 2019-01-23 09:43 in

I plan to use the script to insert products into content rich articles.

I will add all relevant paths in the robots.txt, and I'll configure the displays to link directly to the merchant, so hopefully no PriceTapestry-generated URL's will ever be visited.

Still, just in case, I would like to add noindex,follow to ALL Price Tapestry generated pages.

How would this be possible?

Thank you very much in advance

Sure - if you edit pto.php and look for the following code at line 755:

  $pto_headDone = TRUE;

...and REPLACE with:

  global $pto_q;
  if ($pto_module || $pto_q)
    print "<meta name='robots' content='noindex,follow'>";
  $pto_headDone = TRUE;

Just an update if anyone else is reading this, for some reason with the latest wordpress update the code now also noindexes all articles where products are inserted with shortcode - not so good :-D

@David you don't need to do any editing, I've just removed the code and I don't need it anymore, just wanted to give a heads-up :-)
