  • Hello,
    When typing on a search engine (Google, DuckDuckGo…), it leads to the login page instead of the website itself.

    This is very annoying because many visitors do type in search engines in order to access the website. With this error, they cannot access it.

    I hope someone can help me.

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    Duckduckgo’s top search result open your home page, there’s no problem.

    I would recommend to change your robots.txt file, just remove

    wait a few days to see if there’s any difference.

    I just realised I coudn’t find it because by default, it’s a virtual file, thus not on the server.

    So I just created it, applied the change you suggested and added it to my root folder.

    Thanks for your suggestion ! I’ll wait a few days and see… If it didn’t work, I’d come back here to you if you don’t mind 🙂
