To disable the name link which leads to the single entry view, goto the Connections : Settings admin page and click the Advanced tab. Uncheck the Name Link option and save.
That will prevent the names from becoming links. Hope that helps!12/30/2014 at 1:18 pm #313697Ciaran LyonsParticipant
Thanks, but I have already disabled all Links in the Advanced tab, including the Name links.
Even though you can’t browse to those pages, they still appear in Search somehow:
It’s this behaviour I want to prevent, but stopping Connnections from even rendering the Single Entry pages.
I don’t see anywhere in the templates where this logic fires. Maybe I’d have to hack the URL routing?01/01/2015 at 10:16 am #313850
Right, this only disables the visible links, the underlying code still will function if you access the link directly. Since the links are in the Google index they’ll show up in the results and will work.
As Google re-crawls the site and updates its index, the links will be removed from its index.
To complete remove the ability from Connections you would have to remove the rewrite rules for the single pages from the
class.rewrite.phpin this file:
Hope that helps!01/01/2015 at 12:19 pm #313853Ciaran LyonsParticipant
Thanks Steven. I decided not to hack the core plugin but you gave me the right idea with rewrites.
I created a new rule in my .htaccess which will redirect those detail pages back to the main category:
RedirectMatch 301 ^/marketplace/([a-zA-Z]+)/name/([a-zA-Z-]+)/$ /marketplace/$1/
That seems to do the trick and will survive any updated to the plugin you make.

I didn’t think of doing a simple .htaccess redirect. That’ll work quite nicely!
If you have a moment, I would truly appreciate a review as they really do make a difference. Many thanks in advance!
