Solved Bots

Post by Kalliopi February 6th 2010, 3:54 pm

We have our forum set up so that the bots cannot access it, it is a closed forum,therefore guests cannot read it. We have this meta tag <meta name="Robots" content="noindex, nofollow" />

What I want if possible, is for the bots who visit our forum to be able to index the forum from the outside, name of forum etc but not log in & trawl individual posts. Is this possible & if so how do I configure this?

Thanks in advance. Smile

Bots acts as a guest and if you restricted the guests from seeing the whole forum but only the allowed content you give for the guests are the bots seeing.

I think they can still crawl your index, the name etc. even it's restricted for them.

Bots will index anything that the guest can see.
