  • "Who's online" False guests?

    OK its been telling me I got a lot of guests everyonce in awhile, like 15, 20, 30, just at random

    I just now checked to see what was going on and all are from 64.71.144.?? the ?? are 2 other numbers that vary on each one.

    I know they're not guests, because it says their reporting posts, "Moderating Duties", and sending PM's and editing threads. Guests can not do any of those things on my forum....

    These are search engine spiders.

          They are just following links. If your permissions are set correctly, all they are seeing is the 'No permission' page.

              Spiders are What the Big Search Engines like Google and Msn use to find out what is on your page so users can search and find your site
