    Hi there,

    Thanks for a great software. So much better than what I used before.

    Over the last two days I have gotten Crawl Errors from Google. Not in all forums, but some.... today Webmaster tools shows about 14.000 pages with this problem.

    One example:

    ...as you can see... a 403 error...

    Any ideas why this is?

    The other day I did install the "Alter Ego Detector" plugin, but have since uninstalled and cleared cache...

    Thanks for any help.

    If you can show us the rest of the HTML of the page, we can see the reason. I'd guess it was a permission setting though.

    Ok, uploading a pdf with the full html code that "Fetch as google" generated in Webmaster Tools (was too long to add in post).
