  • Keeping threads from showing up on Google?

    How do I keep threads and posts from showing up in Google or any other search engine?

    In fact i want my board completely private for only people that I allow to register.

    Hey Im trying to do the same thing. So far I changed the permissions of the forums so that COPPA, unregistered, and waiting confirmation are DENY ALL. And I have to manually approve everyone. Not sure if thats all you need but it seems to be working for me so far.
    Hopefully there is someone smarter than me (shouldn't be hard :P) that can elaborate on this.

      Go to Usergroups -> Usergroup Manager.

      Edit the Unregistered / Not Logged In usergroup and set "Can View Forums" to No.
