Im using a web app to create a members listing, which will basically be a list of people, ideally each one with have a category. The page with the list view can be seen here:
At the moment I have disabled the link through to the detail page, however it will still be indexed by search engines and the site search which obviously is not ideal. Could anyone point me in the right direction for the best solution please?
I will also ideally need to create a search form so users can refine all the listings based on their category, found here:
Ive had a look at the web app search form but that pulls in sitewide categories, which is too broad for this usage.
I hope that is all clear,
In your template for the detail view, you need to create a template for it and redirect it with a meta header tag in the HTML template to your core directory.
eg: <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="2;url=http://www.bicesterchamber.co.uk/member-directory">
This will then give you the desired solution for your redirect.
You can also publish a template for the web app detail view that doesnt have any detail on it to reduce the chance of it being indexed and discovered.
Hope that is a helpful method for you.
