    I just saw in another post that there is a file in xenforo what regocnizes search engine bots

    public static $knownRobots = array
    'sogou web spider',
    'xenforo signature generator',
    'yahoo! slurp',
    where is the location of this file and can I add more bots? I need it for the "first click" plugin.

    That file is library/XenForo/Session.php

    Be weary of making code edits but if you're comfortable with doing so at least keep a note of your changes for reference after upgrading (where the files will be replaced).

    Line 96.

    There is also XenForo_Session::isRobot();

    Since its static, he should be able to do:
    XenForo_Session::$knownRobots array_merge(array('my''robots'), XenForo_Session::$knownRobots);
    // or... I've seen this used but never used this operator:
    XenForo_Session::$knownRobots += array('my, 'robots');
    It a code event early on.

    Thank you guys, just one question... I have this bot identification file attached, do you know how I could filter the bots name to put in in the xf file?

    This should do most of the work. There may be 1-2 missing commas (PHP should tell you line numbers).
