Disable session IDs for all guest?
« on: May 12, 2006, 11:34:24 AM »
I've noticed SMF seems to be being crawled with sessions IDs in the URLs, even with the SE friendly links option used.

Could you please advise what sort of code I need to modify in the template so that guests have session ID's disabled automatically?

1.1 RC2 works properly (code is in Load.php), session ID's will not be started for search engine bots. Disabling session ID's totally would mean members who cant accept cookies would not be able to login.

If you search the forum you will be find the code which will hide session URLs in links

Thanks Ben_S - good to see search engine bots excluded from sessions. :)
