I have created a silverstripe website that requires a member log-in and the CMS pages contain links to pdf reports. The login members don't want public access to these reports however active links to the pdf's are appearing on Google searches with the link routed through the uploads file. These pdf's open when clicked on via the Google links. How can I make sure these links don't appear in Google searches?
They may have been indexed by Google before the pages were made secure. If I rename the pdf's and replace those that are appearing in Google searches, will this stop them appearing in Google searches?
The betas of SilverStripe 2.0 were the first open-source releases of SilverStripe. SilverStripe 1.x was never open-sourced, and frankly, I'd be a bit embarrassed to!
SilverStripe 2.0 was a complete rewrite that let us correct the (many) architectural mistakes of SilverStripe 1.x. SilverStripe 1.x had evolved over a number of years from a simple content editor into an application framework and, like any application developed using the "ball of sticky plasters" software development lifecycle (BOSPSDL), was plagued by legacy constraints and architectural patterns that stopped being appropriate.
