sorry to bring up old topic, but does this work on 3.2?

I also plan on adding "hifikabin" Block Bad Bots with .HTACCESS

I don't know if this Bot list is being maintained, but I spotted 3 active bots that are not in it:

Name / Agent
megaindex [Crawler] / megaindex.com
Qwant [BOT] / Qwantify
British Library [Bot] / bl.uk_lddc_bot

As 3.0.x is no longer supported, I doubt anyone would want to make an up to date script. This post (with the script) was last updated in 2012 viewtopic.php?p=12119145#p12119145

You should also seriously consider upgrading to phpBB 3.2.x

Check the manage_bots code.

You could certainly make the default group "Bad Bots". I don't know about removing them from the Bots group, though. I presume that wouldn't break their bot status, but I don't see a good reason to do it -- they are still bots, after all.

Thank you so much for this great tool. I love it so much. Could we get an updated manage_bots.php for 2018? Including DuckDuckGo etc? :)

Here is an interesting source of bots https://github.com/monperrus/crawler-us ... gents.json

How about to add the e-mail address to the default 50 bots we have in the database?

The problem here is that you'll need the 50 mailaddresses first 8-) .
A bug is a feature that hasn't made it to the manual (yet)
