Manage Styles and Language for Bots

Post by Louis7777 » Sat Mar 22, 2014 9:03 pm

Basically, this mod:Manage Styles and Language for Bots
Bot style:
The style used for the board by the bot.

Bot language:
The language presented to the bot as it browses.
What does it do?

Allows administrators to synchronize bot styles and languages with the board
default en masse.

The current actions that can be applied to marked bots are: Activate, Deactivate, Delete. This mod adds a couple more: Synchronize style, Synchronize language.

You can already do this with Manage Users, on the bot's user profile.

But you might want each bot to have a different language or style .

From a SEO point of view it's more likely that you'll want all bots to see the same style and language. And then you can choose your strategy for specific bots e.g. choose chinese for baidu if you have that language installed.

Wouldn't that mean that people who see your forum in search engine results would see a totally different view on different search engines? :?
