Using 'Numeric' Permalinks Question

  • I have used the ‘numeric’ permalinks for years. So all of my posts appear like this: http://www.bmedreport.com/archives/15639

    Does this mean that all posts are “archives” now (since it has archives in the URL)? I ask because I have in Google XML sitemap set to not index archives (to avoid duplicate content). Does this mean it won’t index posts too (since their is the archives in the URL)?

    I noticed when I peruse posts by archives the links changes to this: http://www.bmedreport.com/archives/date/2010/07. Perhaps this is enough to distinguish between an “archive” and a “post” for the sake of bots?

    I hope I am making sense here. Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks!
    Chris

  • Im sure the plugin would grab the posts urls based on database record information which would say it is a post or not. Or use built in wordpress functions that do the same. But I haven’t looked at the plugin code.
    The permalinks structure is just a meaningless word you typed into the structure options.

    Your sitemap.xml is full of your posts though right now.

    Ok. I didn’t realize that there was a way to detect a post versus archive built-in. It sounds like I am OK then. Thanks for the feedback. I really appreciate it.
