    What am I missing?

    I've got a bunch of guests messing around on my board- they can't post, but they are a pain. I want to make it so guests can't view threads. I thought I did that in the admincp, but there's still about 15 guests poking around- they're from a rival website and I just want them to either register or go away.

                What is WOL ??

                I have enabled "Enable Spider Display" but I have never seen a difference, all I see is Guest. Can you elaborate a little as to what I should be seeing. Thanks.

                    You mean like Google will be mixed in with members names, or directly under Guest (which would need to open up as two lines).

                    I wish I could see a picture. I know I have been spidered yet I have never seen one displayed.

                          they index your page for someone if they decided to look for somthing realted to your site on google.com


                          such as go to google.com and type Digital Kore

                          my site should come up as the first if not one of the first few
                          www.digitalkore.net
                          or type Fated Circle Online

                          www.fated-circle.com should be one of the first few sites

                          your site gets listed becauses its been spidreed and indexed
