Bots

Post by NativePredator on February 25th 2011, 1:13 pm

Google bot is the only one that shows up as online, other bots that visit are being considered as guests, as i can see their IP addresses in the admin CP but they are listed as guests instead of bots, i have a group called bots, why dont they show up as such???

Hello NativePredator,

Bots will show up automatically when they visit your forum. In this case, the Google bot was the bot to visit your forum. Check to see if you've enabled bots to appear in the "Who is Online ?" section by going to:

1. Administration Panel (advanced mode)
2. Display Tab
3. Structure and hierarchy (on the left, under Homepage)
4. Select "Display bots in statistics of the forum : Yes"

Very Happy

Regards,

Base

Hello,

Bots don't register on a forum so they can't be put in a group.
