I'm using the standard WordPress Archives widget in dropdown mode on my blog. But apparently the Microsoft Bing spider gets confused by it, because the dropdown code looks like this:
<select name="archive-dropdown" onchange='document.location.href=this.options[this.selectedIndex].value;'> ... <option/> ... </option> ... </option> ... </select>
In the Redirection plugin, it shows a ton of 404 errors due to a spider from Redmond pinging darn near every page and post on my site asking for a "this.options[this.selectedIndex].value;" file.
What's the best way to fix this problem? Should I use a different widget? Is there a way to tell the spider to knock it off? (To be clear: I do want my pages indexed, but I don't want to deal with a with all the 404 issues)
