Hello,

We do not have print allowed in the module and do not want to use it. Because of this the print friendly page is not styled and not all features work correctly. We just discovered that Google has indexed this page exposing it in search. Are we able to shut this page down completely and make a note in our robots file? How would you comment it in the robots file so we don't affect other pages? The printer friendly page url is 

(domain name)/Events/Event/mid/810/itemid/33/ctl/Details/ShowNav/False/dnnprintmode/true?SkinSrc=%5BG%5DSkins%2F_default%2FNo+Skin&ContainerSrc=%5BG%5DContainers%2F_default%2FNo+Container#fancybox-detail

Thanks for your insight.
Mike

If you set IIS to allow RESPONSE_X_Robots_Tag as a new server variable then you could use an outbound rewrite rule to issue a proper header tag. This should work for you. I tested it with fiddler. Google will respect the X Robots Tag.

 

<outboundRules>

<rule name="Set custom HTTP response header">

<match serverVariable="RESPONSE_X_Robots_Tag" pattern=".*" />

<conditions>

<add input="{REQUEST_URI}" pattern="/dnnprintmode/*" />

</conditions>

<action type="Rewrite" value="noindex"/>

</rule>

</outboundRules>

I appreciate the input, but I'm hoping to find a solution that I can implement within DNN and/or robots.txt or even the web.config. I don't have that level of access to the IIS. Thanks.

Did you try...

User-agent: *
Disallow: /dnnprintmode/


... in your robots.txt

We haven't tried that. With my limited knowledge of DNN, I know it doesn't have conventional directories. Why do you suggest /dnnprintmode/ and not something like /Events/Event/mid/810/itemid/33/ctl/Details/ShowNav/False/dnnprintmode/  which I know would only be for one particular entry (itemid/33)?

Thanks.
