Hi guys!
I'm looking for starting point, and example of robots.txt file for Vanilla 2.3.
Where I can get it?
Could you please share you knowledge to community in this topic?
So please, place your working templates of robots.txt here.
Thanks in advance!

    Why not keep it simple? :bleep_bloop:

  • Do you think is a good idea for forum security?

    If your security concept is based on robots.txt, you are doomed ;)

    Security must be provided by the web app, not by robots.txt

  • I understand you.

    But I also remeber "good old times of us" when /admin dir of some kind of CMS was indexed by search engines.

    You could disallow /dashboard/* and /settings/* if it makes you feel better, but that has nothing to do with security at all.

  • OK, thanks, I'll try that.
    Is Vanilla "out of the box" SEO-friendly engine?

    I do not know much about SEO, but as far as I know there are no SEO tweaks needed at all for Vanilla

    In my experience, absolutely.
