Spider Board & Topic Access

Version: 1.0 Date 2008-12-5
Compatibility: SMF 1.1.7 , SMF 2.0 Beta 4

When this option is enabled,then the selected spiders are be able to browse the site and the others guests will be
redirected to the login page,when they try to enter a board or a topic.It makes sense,when somebody wants to restrict guest access of the site topics,
but it's not a good thing for the spiders,who brings hits & new members to our site.This little modification would let us to allow spiders to browse our site,when we don't want to let other guests to browse the site

How can you activate it ?

Admin -> Features and Options -> Enable spider access (SMF 1.1.7)

Admin -> Modifications -> Enable spider access (SMF 2.0 Beta 4)


Ps: Search engines such as Google, may ban users' site for using this mod, as giving more access to bots than guests is against their TOS
