  • Offline Achives?

    I require guests to register before they can see the board. Therefore the spiders won't be able to search the archives, post, etc. either? correct?

    Is there a way to save the archives as .html files and then move them to a folder where the spiders would pick them up?

    This is not a feature in vB. The search engines will only spider the links that Guests can see.

    Honestly if you want the search engines and Guests to see the archived pages, then you should simply let your Guests view the same live pages. I'm not sure why you'd allow one and not the other. Just a thought.
