Does not increase topic views for spiders.

When spiders are browsing your forum, they will increase the topic views in every topic they visit.  This modification basically detects most well-known spiders , and if so, it won't increase page count.

This will give you a better idea of actually how many REAL people are viewing topics.
It will also save on a few queries.

Any previous versions of this mod MUST be uninstalled BEFORE installing this version.

Simply install the package to install on the SMF Default Core Theme ONLY.

If your theme has its own versions of the language files Modifications.english.php and/or Modifications.english-utf8.php, OR if your using a language other than those supported (listed above) by the mod then you will need to copy the language strings into each custom version of those files.
