View Full Version : Excludes not working although properly set

05-01-2004, 05:02 AM
Hi !

I'm currently running PhpDig version 1.8.0, and unfortunately, the comments <!-- phpdigExclude --> and <!-- phpdigInclude --> seem to have no effect. The content between them is still indexed.

Before posting this message, I made a comprehensive search in the forum, I found that each comment should be on a single line. That's done. So, I don't understand where the problem is coming from ? Maybe my version of PHP is too old ? My host runs 4.1.2, certified by Sun, and I can't change for another host at the moment.

Any help would be greatly appreciated !

Many thanks :)

Thank you Charter for your reply :)

I've read this thread before posting, but unfortunately it doesn't solve my problem.

If you have any idea please let me know...

Best regards.

Hi. When you look at the HTML source for the pages using the exclude/include comments, are they each on their own line?

Yes, they are on their own line, and everything is correct in the config file. Thank you again Charter for your help :)

Hi. The exclude/include comments are case sensitive. Are you using phpdigexclude/phpdiginclude or phpdigExclude/phpdigInclude? Do a double check and see if what is defined in the config file is what is used in the HTML output.

Hi Charter !

I effectively checked the case in both the config file and the HTML output, and they appear to be the same (phpdigExclude and phpdigInclude).

Nevertheless, I must tell you that I wanted to prevent the meta tag "description" from being indexed by PhpDig. I think that I've found the solution in robot_functions.php, and it seems to work now.

But will the comments phpdigExclude and phpdigInclude will elsewhere in the page, for example between the <body> and </body> tags of the page instead of the <head> and </head> tags ? Furthermore, the indexing process seems much slower with 1.8.0 than it was with 1.6.2 (that I was using before). Is there a solution for that ?

Thank you again !

Ah, see this (http://www.phpdig.net/showthread.php?threadid=555) thread about meta tags. The exclude/include tags are for within the body of your pages. As for speed, 1.8.0 does more processing and there is a "courtesy" resource pause. Maybe this (http://www.phpdig.net/showthread.php?threadid=845) and/or this (http://www.phpdig.net/showthread.php?threadid=543) thread would be of interest.

Hi Charter !

Thank you alot for your very effective support ! It's very nice to see that for a FREE, and professional-class script like PhpDig :)

My problem is now solved for the meta tags, and i optimized the search.php and robot_functions.ph files to make the indexing process a little bit faster.

Best Regards,
