Everytime I ftp my robots.txt file (which contains information that prevents crawling robots crawling certain folders) this file get's loaded into the live chat as a new visitor that wants to chat.
When I quit this robots.txt chat the X chat also removes the file from the server.
Sounds like another bug to me.
I seem to start stumbling over a lot of these bug's and mistakes.
I don't want to place the live chat files into a sub folder so that it can't reach the robots.txt which obviously resides in the root.
Any other solution out there?
X chat shouldn't do this.
Are you sure Robots.txt is configured properly, last time I had heard more than 80% of these files were incorrect.
It's also a good idea to isolate all scripts in seperate directories for troubleshooting, and debugging
I know and agree that it shouldn't do this:-) but it keeps defying me on this point:-D.
My robots.txt is set up fine no mistakes there. This is what it looks like:
This first line dictates that the rules are set up for all spiders
These three lines are folders not allowed for spiders to crawl.
I don't want this chat to run anywhere else but the root so I am not going to stick it in a folder. I just want it a bit more bug free than it currently is. Not to much to ask for a program that's being sold.
Hmm I just realized that the chat is killing every txt file I put on the server on the same location as the chat is (which is in the root).
I just tried to add a search engine which used one txt file and as soon as I uploaded the text file to the server it logged in into the chat. I quit that chat (because it wasn't a real chat just a txt file logging in and voila. Gone was my txt file from the server.
What's up with that?
