guest viewing private messages, HELP!

Post by madpwr1 » Sat Jul 15, 2006 12:05 am

The ACP Who Is Online shows a Guest viewing memberlist and private messages and when i lookup the IP it seems to be a google bot ... i have my entire forum closed off to guests and you must be registered to view anything including memberlist ... are people searching google able to see private messages and memberlist etc on my forum? ... someone please help!

No.

The Bots are only seeing a Login page. They cannot see your forums if they are set to private/hidden.
