[resolved] Bunch of 403 errors (6 posts)

    Hello,
    My site is http://www.inexhibit.com

    Since some months I am getting a great number of 403 errors reported from Google Webmaster Tools. They are all of the same type: "http://www.inexhibit.com/logout/?_wpnonce=a6f74eef0e"
    Furthemore the plugin creates sitemaps containing:

    http://www.inexhibit.com/your-profile/
    http://www.inexhibit.com/login/
    http://www.inexhibit.com/logout/?_wpnonce=337c505a73
    http://www.inexhibit.com/register/
    http://www.inexhibit.com/lostpassword/
    http://www.inexhibit.com/resetpass/

    and many others similar.
    I don't want to include such stuff in my sitemaps, this is not real content, only administration features. Is there a way to avoid Google XML Sitemap adding these elements to sitemaps and what whould i have to let Google know that I fixed such errors (if it's possible)? Resubmit the whole sitemap?

    Yes, you enter the IDs of that pages into the "exclude posts" field.

    Thank you so much Arnee. If I understand correctly it is sufficient that I add the number ID of each page I don't want to be included in the sitemap in the Page/Post exclusion list, separated by commas. A small additional queation: if I include the logout page ID, it will also exclude all "/logout/?_wpnonce=XXXXXXXXXX" entries too?

    Thanks for your great plugin

    Best

    Yes, if you are using a special logout page, it will exclude this one too.
