Too much hits to my forum topics after update of 3.3.0

Post by Luchtzak »

Recently, and after the update to 3.3.0, my forum has had an increase of views on about every single topic. Not a few hundreds, but thousands of views are coming in. Don't know how this comes ? I thought about search engines or bots ?

Any idea ? Thanks!

You might want to check the user-agent string of your guests against Blocking aggressive Chinese crawlers/scrapers/bots. There have been a number of discussions of this going back to last November.

On my boards I've implemented the update solution posted in https://www.johnlarge.co.uk/blocking-ag ... ment-11823 and that has resolved the problem.
