#1070 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Stop robots from accessing page history

Reported by: wardi-trac@… Owned by: coderanger
Priority: normal Component: RobotsTxtPlugin

Cc: Trac Release: 0.10


The robots.txt method can't currently stop robots from indexing old versions of wiki pages.

As a work-around I've added the following rewrite rule to my apache configuration:

RewriteCond %{QUERY_STRING} ^version=(.*)$
RewriteRule ^/wiki/(.*)$ /wiki_revision/$1?version=%1 [R,L]

And I've added this to my robots.txt:

Disallow /wiki_revision

It would be nicer if this plugin had a solution for this problem, so I don't have to use Apache trickery.
