There's nothing to explain.
everyone could say [yes] or [no]
but its better to explain why is yes and why no
this my question dosnt have only one small [yes] or [no]. it needs a big talk about between phpbb system and robots in this topic by definition.
but anyway, thanks for your reply.
Then go for it, ignore the years of experience that we are giving you and see how you get on.
Add a forum icon, it's in manage forum > edit> forum icon. Make one that says password or something similar. Done. Stop massively over complicating everything you ask about. Three fricken pages of this now. We told you the answer ages ago.
this was a side talk and wasn't main topic, but yes definitely i will do!

Do you realize you're beating a dead horse or how do we explain this?
Enough, there's nothing to add, just relax and read it all over again, think about it, experience it for yourself and maybe one day you'll be able to say: they were right! This is not the way you're gonna find people willing to answer your questions in the future, you understand?
please be professional

What specific part do you want an answer to now. If nothing else, for the love of god, to finish this topic off.

You asked if bots can get in to a passworded forum.
We've told you no they can't because they can't decipher what part of the the text on the whole page they need to use as the password and that permissions would solve ALL of your questions with this. What else SPECIFICALLY do you need to know?

is it possible for robots to unlock the forums and pass its contents to indexing engine?
Standard bots don't access content not publicly available, in fact allowing them do it is quick way to get your site banned in index.

There are special cases for this, if you have adsense account for example you can provide credentials to Googles adsbot for content behind a login.

that's an option. and most people like it.
You just set an open group, they can join in the UCP and get instant access.
