    Default Google caching thousands of duplicate pages with /lang/lang/lang issue

    Ok, Look at the page
    Code:
    http://www.allfreechips.com/ga/gl/afc_contests/selectpayment.html
    as its a duplicate of
    Code:
    http://www.allfreechips.com/ga/afc_contests/selectpayment.html

    Long time ago when we installed the vBet we had an issue where it would allow multiple lang "folders" so now I have a very large SEO problem with thousands of duplicate pages.

    the abouve should not be /ga/gl/ it should only be /ga/ and that them becomes a duplicate

    I needt to re-direct all these incoorect folders to the correct single folder asap.

    Please fill me in on a .htaccess mod to correct this please.

    Thank you!
    Chris

    I made a 404 error trigger in htaccess, although I would really prefer to R=301 redirect these pages

    Code:
    RewriteRule ^/?(af|sq|ar|be|bg|ca|zh-CN|hr|cs|da|nl|en|et|tl|fi|fr|gl|de|el|iw|hi|hu|is|id|ga|it|ja|ko|lv|lt|mk|ms|mt|no|fa|pl|pt|ro|ru|sr|sk|sl|es|sw|sv|zh-TW|th|tr|uk|vi|cy|yi)/(af|sq|ar|be|bg|ca|zh-CN|hr|cs|da|nl|en|et|tl|fi|fr|gl|de|el|iw|hi|hu|is|id|ga|it|ja|ko|lv|lt|mk|ms|mt|no|fa|pl|pt|ro|ru|sr|sk|sl|es|sw|sv|zh-TW|th|tr|uk|vi|cy|yi)* http://www.allfreechips.com/Allfreechips [L,QSA]
    /Allfreechips then triggers my google 404 error page.

    Alos noted my sitemap is broke, and if i run manually i get this

    Warning: strtr() [function.strtr]: The second argument is not an array in /home/allfreec/public_html/phpBB2/includes/functions_vbseo_url.php on line 488


    and that line is

    Code:
    if (false !== strpos($text, ');
    global $stylevar;
    if ($stylevar['charset'] != 'utf-8') {
    $text = preg_replace('/&#([0-9]+);/esiU', 'convert_int_to_utf8(\'\\1\')', $text);
    }
    When i try to view the sitemap i get a intermal error.

    Hello,

    Now I don't know where is the issue. Still with double lang folder in url or not?
    ahhh sorry because yesterday I gave you a solution for 4 version of vB but you have 3 my mistake, sorry once again.

    here you have a solution to eliminate double redirect from url:
    1. open and make a copy of this file:
    forum root/includes/vbenterprisetranslator_functions_hooks.php
    2. in this file find:
    PHP Code:
    function vbet_global_start(&$template_hook) { 
    3. in this function find:
    PHP Code:
    if (!$vbulletin->userinfo['userid'] && $vbulletin->options['vbenterprisetranslator_guestfilecache_use'
    4. put BEFORE this code:
    PHP Code:
    if ('REQUEST_URI' == $vbulletin->options['vbenterprisetranslator_linkstype'] && $_REQUEST['goto'] != 'newpost' && $_REQUEST['language'])
            {
                require_once(
    DIR'/includes/vbenterprisetranslator_functions_url_tracking.php');
                
    $url str_replace('/'.$_REQUEST['language'].'/''/'$_SERVER['REQUEST_URI']);
                
                if(
    preg_match('/\/('.VBET_LANGUAGESMATCH.')\//',$url)) 
                {
                    
                    
    $url preg_replace('/('.VBET_LANGUAGESMATCH.')\//','',$url);
                    
    exec_header_redirect($url);
                }
            } 
    Secondly. I don't know what issue do you have when you would like to upgrade vBET. please give me some example. Please check all configuration settings in admincp->vBET->main (url engine etc.) and paste here your .htaccess file.
    If you still can't upgrade to new version - please sent to me by PM your admincp and FTP details and I will fix it.

    Thirdly. Did you integrate your sitemap generator with vBET? here you have a solution step by step how to integrate this mod: Sitemap Generator integration

    Yes, multiple issues

    One, I want to 301 all the pages with the error, now that code you posted does a rediredt, but is it an actual hard 301 redirect?


    2nd, Upgrading to the newer 3.x version everything worked except i could not view the threads, just got a blank page.

    3rd my sitemap was integrated when i had the paid installation of vbet a while back, so now it generates a sitemap but you get a Internal Error when you try to access it, and also the error i reported abouve when you generate a sitemap.
