WP- Link Exchange plugin - problem with mod_rewrite and .htaccess (13 posts)

    Hi,

    i have a problem with that plugin and i saw that this problem also affects official plugin page:

    The plugin can be downloaded from here:
    http://www.ebrandmarketing.com.au/wordpress-link-directory/

    The problem is easy, after installation, i setup the plugin for use seo friendly URL, all apparently work good, but the google bot can't access to directory link:

    Example: my blog is in the root of the website, i put the directory in a subfolder named "directory"

    The google bot doesn't find http://www.myweb.com/diretory/ and return a 404 Error. And also don't work the categories links http://www.myweb.com/diretory/categories/cat-name

    After few time i found that the error is generated by a mistake in .htaccess file.

    My wordpress .htaccess is the default
    My link directory .htaccess is:

    RewriteEngine on
    
    RewriteRule ^categories/(.*)/(.*)$ index.php?cat=$1&page=$2 [QSA,L]
    RewriteRule ^subcategories/(.*)/(.*)/(.*)$ index.php?cat=$1&scat=$2&page=$3 [QSA,L]

    Ok this is a big problem, because i have installed a SEO diretory and if the search engine can't accethe directory that is not exacltly a seo fliendly directory. The big problem is that this is not only a my problem but is a BUG of the plugin.

    You can try what i say by using this tool:
    http://tool.motoricerca.info/spam-detector/index.pcgi

    Try that on author plugin directory
    http://www.ebrandmarketing.com.au/directory/

    The error message will be : ERROR: Page not found.

    But the page exist and is working...

    Please help me to fix the problem
    Thanks

    I notice the problem by using http://validator.w3.org/ to validate.

    Let me see if I can work something out.

    Thanks for sharing this information. I had the same problem with mywebsite and I was getting that 404 error page not found for my directory. Your topic was very useful to me and now i solve the issue in my website http://www.onemilliondollarclub.org which is about Make money.

    We are thinking about making an extended link page on iBeat, and the links page we've made is just useless.

    Is this alectang plugin the best way to organize one way links and reciprocals or are there better plugins?

    I spotted LinkSync but that seems like a piece of blog-spam-network kind of thing.

    I think i found my solution and heck it was easy.

    I recklessly upgrade my WP version which is automatically re-write the whole /wp-admin directory. To bring back the link directory after upgrading WP version is by simply ftp back the whole /wp-admin directory at the plugin files.

    Then the Link Directory plugin work back to normal.

    Cheers.

    I want to install a link exchange on my golf gps blog, but the wordpress link directory link in the first post seems to be broken. Does anyone else know an alternative link manager, preferably one that installs as a plugin?

    Richard - Can you give us more information on how you cleared this 404 situation?

    I am looking to get this link exchange plugin working on my beach fitness website. I was wondering if anyone knew a way that I can hire somebody to do this installation for me. I would much appreciate that!
