    Hello,

    Google doesn't index my forum on www.robbydeletter.com/forum
    Do you guys have two robots.txt files when the forum is in a seperate location?
    Thanks in advance.

    XenForo.com has one robots.txt file in its root, even though the forum is in a separate directory:

    http://xenforo.com/robots.txt

    So you should be able to just have one robots.txt file.

    Your robots.txt file should be in the domain's root directory.

    But you'll be needing two if you have your forum in a sub-domain (as sub-domains are completely different domain according to SE Bots) - This part is for future references (if any :p )
