    As you can see the site is falling apart. I just logged into Google Webmaster Tools to try to figure out what is happening. It looks like the RSS is tossing errors.
    For the URL I cannot put http://www.domain.com/community because XenScripts is used to log into the multisite. I have /community. This seems to toss errors galore. I was ignoring them - apparently Google thinks they need to ignore things too :)
    So - what are the suggestions? How can I fix the RSS feed errors? No, I cannot put in the domain name because of the multisite.

    You get the idea, right?
    Any suggestions? Am I just screwed .. LOL.


    Now, If I could get the RSS to just point to http://www.technologyquestions.com/community and the login part to /community then I'd be a happy camper !

    What is your board URL set to?

    Admin CP -> Home -> Options -> Basic Board Information -> Board URL

    It was set to /community so that I could login with any other domains. I just changed it to

    http://www.technologyquestions.com/community and told Google Webmaster Tools that the RSS is fixed.

    I'm testing how this is going to influence the login / logout because I don't want any site to roll over to technologyquestions.com to login ... cookies must have the proper domain.

    Hope that makes sense.

    Ok yeah, that's the problem. The RSS items use that Board URL setting, and the final links go through validation to make sure they are valid URLs, which /community is not. It needs to be http...

    OK. I've set the board URL.

    I also had OLD sitemap files ... from vB days.

    Installed the XF add-on a moment ago. Running the CRON job now but it keeps failing after building the 37th sitemap.threads.37.xml.gz. .... I'm submitting the ones that are build to Google now.

    Wish there was a way to just say the directory ... hmm.. that would be faster !

    Just add the sitemap to the robots.txt - unfortunately the cron is erroring out. Hopefully that will get fixed.
