  • [Bug / Issue] meta name="robots" content="noindex"

    I read some threads regarding this issue, but I coudlnt get any solution out of it.
    I just realized via webmaster tools, that about 10-20 Pages (not the search pages and so on) are tagged with "noindex" and I really dont know 1) why and 2) how to get rid of it.

    When I delete the following part out of the header, I can get rid of the noindex tag in the page. But as far as I know, this is not a good idea (?!)

    <vb:if condition="$page['noindex'] AND $page['nofollow']">
            <meta name="robots" content="noindex, nofollow" />
        <vb:elseif condition="$page['noindex']" />
            <meta name="robots" content="noindex" />
        <vb:elseif condition="$page['nofollow']" />
            <meta name="robots" content="nofollow" />

    Can anyone help me with this issue?

    Kind regards!

    Not everything should be indexed. That is what the flags are there to mark the internal pages that are necessary for a registration based content site but shouldn't be indexed. There are no switches to turn them on or off. They should not be used on content pages created through the front-end.

    Please open a bug report so the developers can look into this issue. The developers may need a copy of your database to figure out why it is happening.
