XF 1.5 We have now switched over to Xenforo

Will we want nearly everything on our board indexed, are there any specific xenforo forum components we don't want search engines to index? If so, please tell me what they are so I can add them to the robots.txt file, thanks.

Also, I understand xf submits sitemaps to Google. How does it do that? Or does it just create the sitemaps and I have to submit them with webmaster tools?

It's up to you which pages you don't want indexed and will depend on your configuration to an extent.

This is the one from here: https://xenforo.com/robots.txt

XF will automatically build and submit the sitemap every few days.
You can change some options related to it in the ACP - use the search function to locate it.
