I can confirm this bug: X3 doesn't successfully create "landing pages" for images in your root/index page. Will look into it for a new release available shortly ...

Of course, this is not normally a problem in reality since these links are not really available to be clicked. The only reason your crawler sees them, is because it reads original document src-code, entirely disregarding javascript-rendering.

agreed... not a problem for users... but search engines complain and Google could ding the site on SEO.

to try and get around this I moved the images that were in the in Gallery of the Index folder to a hidden 'slideshow' folder and used the slideshow folder as the 'Gallery Asset' for Index. The result was a 404 on slideshow.

I didn't find this with merelyafleshwound because the index folder is hidden... there is no home link.

Not quite sure what you mean "The result was a 404 on slideshow", you mean the hidden slideshow page returns a 404? Did you create the slideshow page with FTP? That should not happen, and would be a separate incident that I would like to diagnose ... However, it is not necessary to pursue this specific issue, as the original issue should (hopefully) be fixed in next release.

Each record in this file takes a 404

The slideshow directory is hidden and referenced as a Gallery Asset from Index

Slideshow does not have any sub directories... just images.

Cant' confirm this. Those links are definitely working, and not reporting "404 page not found":

Interesting... when I crawled the site this morning the 404 was gone. So it looks like just one bug then when the images are in the index folder.

ok... another flavor of this...

I have a hidden content folder called 'slideshow' with 6 images.
I have a index content folder that has no images.
The index folder has a layout of 'slideshow' and references the slideshow content folder in Gallery Assets.

When I bring up the site everything works fine. However... if I navigate away from the index page... then come back to it... the slideshow images are not displayed... instead I get images not found.

In the interest of a functioning site I have changed how this works. Let me know if you would like me to change it back so you can see the problem for yourself.

Strange, because this is exactly how the original sample content and demo gallery works. A hidden folder "assets", an index folder with no images, which has a slideshow layout, and has "gallery assets" set to the "assets" folder.

Sure you updated the preload object (since you are using that)?
