    Sorry It Wouldn't let me edit my own Thread

    It appears as though the spider is only not indexing the first 2 forums that are specified for exclusion, but if there are more than 2 forums specified in the index.php file, then it still spiders the forums that I don't want to be included.

      Solved my problems, on last question. Does anybody know how often that the vbspiderfriend spiders you site? So let's say I got 100 posts on my site today and get 200 tommorrow, when does the vbspiderfriend spider those new posts?

      Thanks
      Steven

        I have a new version that fixes all of the bugs with redirection etc, I'll try and get it uploaded in the morning. It won't require any major changes if you update, just copy over your existing variables.

        Glad you got your problem sorted, maybe post the solution too so others that run into it know how to fix it as well.

        re: how often does it spider?

        vbSpiderFriend is not a spider itself, it is simply a new way to view your forum-- a way that is more friendly for a spider to navigate and archive. The data you see from vbSF is totally fresh and updated all the time since it reads it dynamically from the database.

        The question is-- how often do you re-submit your site to the search engines? If you submit it today with 100 posts, it will always have those same 100 posts on a search engine until you re-submit. At that point, the engine spider can crawl all of your new posts. Some spiders automatically return after a certain time, some do not.

            Your .htaccess ErrorDocument is not pointed correctly. You MAY need to edit your access.conf to allow override all for .htaccess files.

            You probably just have to edit the .htaccess and mess around with the file pointer. It needs absolute directory names most likely.

                    From http://www.microsoft.com/technet/iis/steps.asp
                    Custom Error Messages

                    In Apache, you provide custom error messages by editing the Error Document and referring to it by using the command:
                    ErrorDocument 404 http://www.domain.com/404.html

                    To customize error messages in IIS 5.0, in the IIS snap-in open Properties for the Web site. On the Custom Errors tab, you'll see the location of the error message files. From here, you can map custom error messages to a file or to a URL on the local server.

                        OK here is the important line on your error screen:

                        >>Additionally, a 404 Not Found
                        error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

                        That means your .htaccess ErrorDocument is not setup correctly. Try different paths-- absolute not relative normally.

                              I am still having the same proble, and cannot see a way to resolve it yet.

                              the addy to it is this :-

                              http://66.78.8.167/~thehood/archive/index.php

                              I put this in my .htaccess file which I uploaded to the forum directory:-

                              ErrorDocument 404 /archive/index.php

                              I do not see what I am doing wrong

                              also, wat is the var $CONN = ""; in index.php ??

                              Can someone please help me !!!!!!!! ?

                              Thank you

                                The Version Number in the ZIP-File is still 0.1a. I have compare the file with the previous downloaded version and find no fixes.

                                When i click on a forumlink with an ID <10 the page reloads only.
