Search Engine Names


Active member
Good day to all.

I was wondering if there is a way to have a the search engines' names show up in the "Members Online Now" box instead of them showing up as guest? If this even happens on XF.

You mean like phpBB listings that state Yahoo [Bot], Google [Bot], etc. for users currently online?

I've searched the forums, but are there any mods that address this?
For what you're looking for, I don't think so.
However, you can view the IP of a visitor from the "who's online list" and find out if that visitor is a search engine crawler or not, ;)

Hrm.. I'm kind of thinking about making this mod then. I just don't want to take the time making it and then it be released in the official software a month later?
