WP- Link Exchange plugin – problem with mod_rewrite and .htaccess
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:
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”
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:
Try that on author plugin directory
The error message will be : ERROR: Page not found.
But the page exist and is working…
Please help me to fix the problem
