Description

Can we please remove these lines from our robots.txt:

Disallow: /support/search.php
Disallow: /extend/plugins/search.php
Disallow: /plugins/search.php
Disallow: /extend/themes/search.php
Disallow: /themes/search.php

All of these redirect to URLs that have been noindexed. Right now, all of these have URLs that are in the index, but don't have content, which is worse than not being in the index.
