Remove/hide messaging category ?
I have disabled the messaging option, which works fine but you can still access the /message pages in the browser bar – is there a way to remove or hide this ?
eg: if you type http://www.mysitename.com/message/123 in the browser it shows a site page, which I don’t need or want.
Sorry I probably should have been clearer – the issue is that the /message pages show up as SEO issues as these pages are still visible. Is there a way to hide or just delete them. I do not need to use the message function at all
Works perfectly – thank you !
I now have an issue where the /message pages are being indexed which I don’t need. The SEO plugin I am using does not give the option of no indexing messages or manually changing the robots.txt to disallow – any suggestions?
Yes it is odd – the pages cannot be viewed normally since the code snippet you gave me previously was added.
My problem is that my SEO plugin automatically generates the robots.txt and it doesn’t have an option to disallow message. And it won’t let me change the robots.txt manually as it is part of the plugin code and not in my files.
I will try removing the code snippet and see if the plugin sees the message pages then, but any other suggestions would be welcome.
