    About the ripped off Britain portal.

    Post by papa_umau on Tue 14 Mar 2017, 11:29 am

    Hi Robsters.

    I thought that I might explain about the "portal" part of this website.

    If the search term "Ripped off Britain.forumotion.net" is used it will return a link to the Portal page of the site.

    That is because the full link address for the website forum is Ripped off Britain.forumotion.net/forum

    This strange difference is because the American Forumotion host company for ROB uses the basic address as the "meta tag" page to point to the initial page of the website.

    Here is a brief description of a Meta tag:

    "The tag provides metadata about the HTML document. ... Meta elements are typically used to specify page description, keywords, author of the document, last modified, and other metadata. The metadata can be used by browsers (how to display content or reload page), search engines (keywords), or other web services."

    So folks, if you were at all curious about why a search takes you to the portal-page then you now know why.

    If you find yourself in the Portal page of the site all you need to do to get to the forum is to click on the "home" link at the top/left of the portal page.

    Thanks for the explanation of the Portal page, although I had already found it and perused it.

    I did think that the selected pages from the forums is badly out of date.

    The bit about meta-tags is too technical for ordinary people, but the thought was there.

    Sorry about the selected examples on the Portal page being out of date but that is beyond my control as the forum software takes these samples at it's own discretion.

    I will do a search about this subject as Admin.

    I gave the explanation of the Portal page as I have not seen this on many other websites and I am on the internet all the time.

    I guess you have managed to fix the out of date forum samples as they are now up to date.

    Yes, thanks, they now are.

    I shall be keeping an eye on how these samples are sent to column two in the Portal page.
