I try to remove the most from my footer without producing 404 pages.

So there is backend.php,backendforum.php and ultramode.txt

What could be redirect and where.
The backendforums.php I should redirect to feeds-2-rss20.xml I quess or to forumsbackend.php.
The backend.php is not needed there I believe.

Well, not 100% sure what your set up is like. Are you running RavenNuke 2.20.x with the nukeFEED already integrated and is feed number 2 set up properly within nukeFEED's admin?

Mine here is definitely set up like this (home page). I added a XML icon within the forums block with a hard-coded link to: http://montegoscripts.com/feeds-2-rss20.xml. In addition, nukeFEED put the various link rel tags in the HEAD portion of the HTML so feed readers will pick those up.

Now, I didn't have to hard-code the forum one, as I could have just used forumsbackend.php. It gives the exact same results. But, I like having the .xml link crawled by the search engines rather than the .php. Just my preference.

Not sure if I answered your question, but I would definitely make sure that within nukeFEED that feed number 2 is set up properly to be your forum feed and that it is working before trying to link to it.

Thanks Montego !


I used a simple permanent redirect to get rid of an old rdf file.
So I was able to delete two links within my footer.
backend.php isn´t required to be within the footer because it redirects automatically to feeds-1-rss20.xml using RavenNuke.

and the other file called backendforum.php wich I used several years is just one more line in .htaccess:

Redirect permanent /backendforum.php http://my-site.com/feeds-2-rss20.xml
