XF 1.5 Search Engine Database


Active member

I have been using vBulletin for ages and at some point, a user made an extensive list of search engine robots for the who is online list.

I found that XenForo only knows a hand full of them like Google and Bing, but I saw a lot more for example ahrefs and applebot. Is there a list for XenForo to make it recognize those bots as bots too?

Thank you!

There's nothing in the ACP which controls it but you can edit the core PHP file to add others if you wish.

PHP-file you say, so that is not really update-proof then?

Is this going to be addressed in XF2?
