Guest Redirect & Profile unlink

Many forums prevent member lists and member profiles from being accessible from search engines/guests, this addon places a redirect from all Member URL's to URL of your choice.

Even when preventing search engines from crawling profiles, every link on the forum still points to a 403 error for guests, a crawler will still try and crawl and as a result eating some of your crawl budget. If you've worked with large projects you'll know how important crawl budgets and error code resolution can be.

Even though the above redirection prevents error codes from happening, we've also taken the extra measure of "unlinking" all user profiles for guests for a more streamlined crawl. On new forums, unlinking can prevent issues arising from the outset.

Also helping cut down on alot of "thin" and replicated content that really doesn't need to be indexed and could be hampering SEO efforts and indexing.

Install and Setup

Guest redirection has its own options group - Setup - Options - Guest redirection :

Unlink user profiles -

This has been done on a per usergroup basis, this is mainly for our beneift so we can add to this addon going forward with some different alternations. You will need to change the usergroup permission to "Yes" for every usergroup you you want to "unlink" for guests.

Groups and Permissions - Usergroups - unregistered - Remove link for user profile
