That page is not accessible to guests so it's likely to be the same for bots. It's not really a problem because there's no useful info on there for the bots to get at.
Yes Google seems to have issues with forum URLs that are NIR accessible unless signed in.

Re: Adding Topic Tags/Hashtags

Including a hashtag with your posts helps to categorise content for your audience.
Makes searching on a forum, for example, a lot more specific than keywords, as it focuses on content, as opposed to actual words and sentences.

Re: 3.2.4 Update

You do not want to do a "clean install" because then your table prefix will be different and your config.php file will not connect to the correct database. There will be times when it is necessary I believe. Changing the config.php is easy enough. I wonder if you could dump the database and import ...

3.2.4 Update

I have not had any luck with the update package and always seem to get problems. To get around this I did a fresh install with one of my forums and it all worked just fine.

Re: 3.2 Approve New Members

Sorry for delay in getting back to you as I have been out in the middle of the Norfolk Broads with zero WiFi.
I think I might have got to a safer setting in the end and time will tell.
I wanted to thank you for taking the time out to help me, I am most grateful. Regards. :D

Re: 3.2 Approve New Members

I am still getting spammed. Could somebody please walk me through the process of changing permissions so that newly registered users can not do anything at all until I have approved it? Even with new member post limit I still got multiple posts. Thank you in advance, this is an urgent request for as...
