    Hey there,
    I have a site built using the Choices theme. The only change I’ve made to the theme is via the available theme options in Choices – Of note is the slug on portfolio entries to ‘resorts’ instead of leaving it default.

    In Google Webmaster tools there’s a bunch of dynamically created URLs that are throwing 404s. They are all the portfolio items with this custom slug and they all have the the final URL slug being /feed/

    Here’s one of a hundred examples…
    *removed by user request*

    If I change the above URL to have the default slug of “portfolio-item” instead of my custom choice being “resorts” the feed shows.

    How can I keep the custom slug name without getting these errors. The actual portfolio item URLs are fine – just not the ‘feed’ URLs which I presume are dynamically created by WP

    Thanks for any insight and help! Catie

    Hi loudcow!

    I’m not sure if this is going to work but you can create a robot.txt to exclude certain urls from being crawled. You can place this file on your public html folder. Add this line of code:

    User-agent: Googlebot 
    Disallow: /*feed$

    For reference, please visit these websites: http://www.robotstxt.org/ , https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/156449?hl=en

    I’m having this same issue.

    I can’t find these pages to get rid of them? It’s giving me all lorem ipsum keywords too…which I can’t see anywhere in my content anywhere. All pages/posts not active have been deleted.

    Where do I put the code you mentioned above?

    Hey!

    It looks like your site just needs to be re-crawled from when they were first gone through by google. You can also use the web dev tools to tell google they are no longer valid or use a plugin to do redirects on those pages in case they don’t get expired.

    Best regards,
    Devin
