    I originally put this request for support in the wrong forum

    I am trying to have use of a WordPress website I built that has subdomains and in some cases subdirectories each with it's own wordpress install. (subdomain.domain.com/subdirectory)

    I purchased a plugin for WordPress on the internet and installed the plugin in the subdomains and subdirectories. The plugin has recently started generating it's own search results. They are indexes of and files on my web hosting company's Apache Server Port 80- parent, css, js, lib and image that are read only. I don't know why this is happening. The plugin's support doesn't respond to this issue.

    In my website's SEO plugin's robot.txt file I put the following instruction in the domain and subdomains file:

    User-Agent: *
    Disallow: /wp-content/plugins/

    The plugin's search results for subdomains have been dropped from search results, but the plugin's search results for subdirectories have not been dropped from search results. I put the above instruction in the robot.txt file for subdirectories but that has not helped. How can I get the plugin's search results for subdirectories dropped from search results.
    Thank You
