Meteor Slides
Avoid URL (9 posts)

    Hello,

    I'm not entirely sure how to ask this better in more technical terms. Currently, each slide gets its own URL ie. http://mydomain.com/?slide=slide-1.
    Would it be possible to avoid this? (or redirect the slide to its attachment id URL http://mydomain.com/?attachment_id=122)

    Hi, the slides are a custom post type. Each slide is a post and will always have it's own URL, but these posts should never show up in the frontend, or even have links to them in the backend.

    The only time they should be loaded is when you use the plugin's template tag or shortcode. Where are you seeing the slide posts?

    Hi,

    I almost already guessed this was being caused by another plugin.
    In this case my xml image sitemap http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/xml-image-sitemap/ was displaying them.

    Ah, this plugin must be checking the media library for images, or maybe checking all posts for attachments. I'll take a look at it and see if there is anything that could be done.

    Thanks, that would be more than appreciated!
    PHP isn't really my native language, but I believe it's checking the media library.

    Did this ever get resolved? I'm having the same problem with my site and I would like to know how the problem was solved. My site is http://www.modernmail.com

    Thanks!

    No, the XML Image Sitemap would have to be altered so that you could choose which images were indexed, or images from only certain post types.

    I know it's not your responsibility because you didn't do the XML sitemap plugin, but do you have any idea where I am supposed to fix it? I tried deactivating the XML plugin, but I'm still getting the error. I just want to remove the hyperlinking in the slideshow because it's going to crazy places now, like "http://www.modernmail.com/?slide=ideation" which isn't even a real page.

    Even if you deactivate the XML plugin, the actual sitemap-image.xml file is probably still there and might have to be manually deleted.
