Delete the 'special cables' from the SOS Shop?

Postby Wonks » Mon Sep 02, 2019 9:40 am

As the 'Special Cables' are no longer available with no plans to get someone else to make them, wouldn't it be a good idea to delete them from the SOS shop?

That does sound like a sensible suggestion, especially coming from Wonks ;)

Yes, I've already brought this to the attention of Mr G. Thanks Wonks. I was surprised to see they were still listed myself.

Ian G has just pointed out that it will be necessary to change the page to say 'no longer available', rather than delete it, to avoid any legacy redirects ending with a 'page not found' message which would damage the site's google rankings! Complicated, tricky business this SEO malarky! :lol:

Edited to add: Tiz now done!
