Yes I am trying to set up a simple admin mod section which isn't viewable for anyone but mods and admins. It says if unchecked and you know the url that it is still accessible but it isn't what is going on am I not understanding this right? There is nothing showing up unless I allow everyone to see and that isn't my mission on this one.
I believe that GoogleBot and/or other bots are given Guest privileges just like any other user, so they can only grab what they are told they can see. So if you had your page hidden to all guests that GoogleBot cannot see it either.
As there is no bot permission available or made on XenForo yet.
This might be because the permissions you have set for other administrator is by adding them to a secondary group which is "Registered" by doing this, they inherit the permissions from registered users so this means that they are "Allowed and not allowed" to view this page. If you remove and edit the group or administrator your having trouble with so their secondary group isn't set to "Registered" they should be able to see it.
I am sorry I miss spoke Admin can't even access them. I have tried clicking, unclicking, private, not private, allow mods, set even individual permissons and nothing works. Matter of fact it has been ever since i have had a mod and another admin they don't even show up in the staff section never have and probably never will.
Because of the way Revoke works in xenForo you shouldn't use it to restrict a private forum. Instead you should use a special feature in xenForo called Private node. You will see the Private node checkbox when editing the permissions for a specific node. This basically inverts the permissions so that you can specify Allowed groups instead of Revoked groups. This is actually better for group management if you add more groups later.
