Area51 is not beta 2, it's just random CVS snapshots the developers choose.

This is not the place to ask that question. You won't find answers here for that problem.

Felix,
This site is only related to phpBB, your problem is not phpBB related, therefore, this is not the site to be asking for help.

I think it was, or at least very close at the time of writing. Plus, the point was that if an issue exists on area51, that doesn't mean it hasn't been addressed already. At the time, because area51 was (very close to) beta 2, more in general because area51 may be an arbitrary amount of time behind CVS.

Google seems to be storing urls with sids still.. and I see a TON that are:

"viewforum.php?f=#&mark=topics"

Which will just mark the topics read if you click it.

I added the newer IPs for the Iktomi bot, but it is still not recognizing it. Could the user agent no longer be "Slurp" and be related to it not figuring out its a bot?

Just want to make sure that function is all working correctly, it just needs to be updated like it will be for the Gold or RC release (according to bug tracker).


Great thanks, i had this problem too.

Yeah... GoogleBot visits my forum minimum twice a day, but still indexed ONLY ONE page.
BTW - other SearchBots has the similar problem - they periodically checks my forum, but have very low count of indexed pages.

I'm just curious - why?

It takes time. You are lucky they have anything indexed.

Any word on this Bot problem?
