Hello,

I am currently facing a problem while trying to access my family tree page.

Steps to produce the bug :
  1. Go to google.com
  2. Look for "Geahchan Family Tree"
  3. Select the first link (as per the attached image : "Google_Search.png")
  4. After entering the password (as per the attached image : "Password_Protected.PNG")
  5. I arrive to the following link : http://familytrees.genopro.com/Georges/Geahchan/FamilyTree.ged --> check attached image.


To be able to go to the family tree page "FamilyTree.ged" should be removed from the link.

Thank you for your help, this is turning out to be very annoying.



BR,
Georges

A password protected Report should not be visible to Google or any other search engine, i.e. no links should be found. 

I suspect that you set a password on the Report folder after the Report was generated, allowing the Google spider to find your .ged file before the door was shut. This is a short-coming within GenoPro of not permitting a password to be set beforehand.

I recommend that you first generate a dummy Report into the required familytrees folder, from a .gno containing a single dummy individual.  Then set the password on the folder and only then generate a Report from your intended .gno into that same, now protected, folder

Also you can suppress generation of a ,ged , ,gno and .xml file in the Report by setting the option under the Privacy tab of the Generate Report dialog.

I suggest you delete the report from familytrees, generate a dummy report as above then generate a new report supressing the .ged file.  The Google link will then be invalid and will eventually be removed by Google.

You should use a browser bookmark (a.k.a. favourite) to provide easy access to your Report without having to enter the full URL into the browser address bar.

Hello Genome,

Thank you for your reply.

I have applied your proposition and it worked fine. Today i found out that the broken link is not visible anymore during my search in google.

I still have one request : how can i make my report (password protectd) visible in search engines.

I know you said that it is not possible, but before having this issue, this was happening. The link to my report was found during my search in google. And once i cliked on the link i was directed to the password page. The link was updated by google and i got the broken link.

BR,

Georges

Bit a 'catch 22' here.  If you want search engines to index your pages, then they cannot be password protected, 'cos then the search engine web crawlers can't see them and so can't index them.  

The only reason I can think of that the pages were originally indexed is because the password was not immediately set.   They would have eventually dropped out of the google index anyway.

It may be possible to create a non-password protected page, e.g. in another familytrees dummy report in a different folder and then change the default.htm page of that report to be a copy of the original report's default.htm but with a redirect to your real report' default.htm added to it.  GenoPro's FTP Client can be used to change the default.htm page of the dummy report after it has been published.
