Hello, have a private categories (for visitor) but not for bots is possible please ?
Bots and guests are treated identically so there's no way to do that.
The visitor object does have 'is_robot'. You could extend the permissions to check this but it requires an addon. You can post a request:
is google the only S.E that frown on this or are there other drawbacks?
Actually this wouldn't be against the Google ToS as the forum would be blocked to the bots, not visitors.
It would be if it was the other way around.
Unless I have misunderstood the question.
Just in case someone stumbles upon this later, this changed in 1.2...
Now it's the session object, (the robotId property). There is no more is_robot property in the visitor object.
Separate names with a comma.
