But the trailing slash problem has not been fixed.
This needs another code inserted into httaccess file. The one making it redirect on the trailing slash does not always work, so one might chose to redirect to non-trailing slash.
Thank you for your recommendations.

Can you provide an example of a URL on this site where a trailing slash does not redirect to its URL without the trailing slash?

As far as I can tell, every URL with a slash appended to it permanently redirects. For example:

Code: Select all

https:/dhammawheel.com/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=32042/

Code: Select all

https://dhammawheel.com/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=32042
Also meta description tags are there for every page on this site. View the source.

My bad. The trailing slash problem has also been fixed. I was looking at an old nibler test. After clicking "retest" it gets 10 on server behavior and says the problem has been fixed.

Fixing the metta description should get us to place 1 but if it doesn't, then we might end up forced to do a negative SEO attack on competitors. For example we can redirect a spammed casino domain to freeshanga.com and hope to get them deindexed by google. We already got one competitor covered since it's the sister site and all it takes is changing their metta description to something about "cheap viagra pills buy now". We also should be doing this thing to forums of other religions.

No, we shouldn't, Circle5. What we should be doing is respecting the spiritual autonomy of others, refraining from causing them distress, and not making ourselves look stupid here on Dhamma Wheel.

...Are you serious?

I appreciate dry humor but DW is a place of such earnestness, I don't think many will get the joke. Gosh I hope it's a joke.

No need to if the objective is to spread the true Dhamma.
As far as I can see Dhamma Wheel is growing steadily.
There are many other ways we can promote Dhamma Wheel in addition to Google.

Greetings,

I've come up with a way to assist with the cross-linking of DW forums.

See viewforum.php?f=57

I've asked David if he can create similar functionality at DWE & DWM in order to create links to the other two sites.

Metta,
Paul. :)

Unwholesome . Are we practising dhamma or in business competition ?

As a moderator at DWM I already proposed that we sell cheap viagra pills to raise money to fund the site and in order to finance weapons purchases to wage a war against DWT and physically wipe it off the face of the Earth. :guns:
