Where does wordpress keep content

  • Where does wordpress keep the folders and files for blogs?

    Ex: http://www.mysite.com/blog/2010/

    I logged in through FTP and through godaddy and none of the folders or files are there.

    I used teleport pro webcrawler on my site and its finding the folders and files on my site such as the comment pages, post pages, blog posts, ect….but why aren’t they there when I browse my site via FTP or through godaddys file manager.

  • its in your database.

    all your posts, etc go in your database. No actual physical files exist. You can find that on the godaddy interface too… under databases-mysql

    Umm. WordPress pages and directories are virtual and not actual physical items. When you visit a post, page or archive it load the appropriate template from your theme and then get the content from you database. No actual directories or physical pages are created.

    Then how is Teleport Pro Webcrawler finding them? And how is Google supposed to list my blog posts in their search engines if there is no .html for the post….

    Google and other search engines see your site just like anyone else does. They visit your url and your server puts it all together and serves it to them. And they index it.

    Even though they are virtual, search engines see them no differently than actual physical pages and directories.

    ohhh I see now.

    While on the subject of google: Is there a way to “Disallow all” in robots.txt with GoogleBot as an exception. Allow “googlebot” and then after that “Disallow all” or something?

    User-agent: Adsbot-Google
    Disallow:

    User-agent: Googlebot
    Disallow:

    User-agent: Mediapartners-Google
    Disallow:

    User-agent: *
    Disallow: /

    OR

    User-agent: Adsbot-Google
    Allow: /

    User-agent: Googlebot
    Allow: /

    User-agent: Mediapartners-Google
    Allow: /

    User-agent: *
    Disallow: /

    Yeah you can. Something like:

    User-agent: *
    Disallow: /
    User-agent: Googlebot
    Allow: /

    Will this work:

    User-agent: Adsbot-Google
    Allow: /
    Disallow: /cgi-bin/
    Disallow: /wp-admin/
    Disallow: /wp-includes/
    Disallow: /wp-content/plugins/
    Disallow: /wp-content/cache/
    Disallow: /wp-content/themes/
    Disallow: /wp-login.php
    Disallow: /wp-register.php

    Disallow: /*.xhtml$
    Disallow: /*.xlsx $

    User-agent: Googlebot

    Disallow: /cgi-bin/
    Disallow: /wp-admin/
    Disallow: /wp-includes/
    Disallow: /wp-content/plugins/
    Disallow: /wp-content/cache/
    Disallow: /wp-content/themes/
    Disallow: /wp-login.php
    Disallow: /wp-register.php
    Disallow: /*.php$

    User-agent: Mediapartners-Google

    Disallow: /wp-admin/
    Disallow: /wp-includes/
    Disallow: /wp-content/plugins/
    Disallow: /wp-content/cache/
    Disallow: /wp-content/themes/
    Disallow: /wp-login.php
    Disallow: /wp-register.php
    Disallow: /*.php$

    Disallow: /*.cgi$
    Disallow: /*.xhtml$
    Disallow: /*.xlsx $
    Disallow: /*.doc$
    Disallow: /*.pdf$
    Disallow: /*.zip$

    User-agent: *
    Disallow: /

    Will that allow all except for the Disallow’d on Google’s bots?

    Or does the Disallows interfere with the Allow: / ?

    If you want to test your robot rules, sign up for Google Webmaster Tools and use their functionality to check them out from the bot perspective.

    The last one should be first
