QUESTION Prevent Getsimple site from calling Google
#1
Hi,

since I would like to play and test a new Getsimple installation in a hidden subdirectory: what do I have to do to tell Getsimple not to ping the site to search engines?

What do I need for that?

# define('GSDONOTPING', 1);

and/or

# define('GSNOSITEMAP',true);

in gsconfig.php or more?


Thank you for your help!

Waah!

I deactivated both, but anyway, one incautious click on "Generate Sitemap" (.../load.php?id=i18n_base&sitemap), and a sitemap is generated and sent to Google and all my efforts to make a secret test installation are obsolete!

This is a very poor solution. How could I safely use test installations only for ME, not for Google?

...long time ago of this post but I would use a htaccess with defined userdata in the main root of the test installation
so no searchengine see this installation
