  • How do I stop robots accessing private forums

    The robot gets an "access denied" when trying to access threads within a private forum, but still gets into the forum. How do I stop this.

    The private forum is "deny all"ed and then individual users are given access via their access masks

        Because the google ad's are displayed in that forum google sends a link to see whats on the page to display the correct ad's

          That's what I thought after your question above. How does one NOT have the google ads displayed in private forums then?

            As google cant see anything and they just get an error page is there any reason to want to block them?

            you can use a condition to remove it

            <if condition="$foruminfo[forumid] != X"> adsense code here </if>

              The reason to block them is so that they don't show on Who's Online thus giving away the fact ihe forum exists.....

                Only people you have given access to see the location and or detained location, ontop of that who can see the forum would know where they are.
