    Search suggestion

    If you changed the robots.txt file to allow searching of the cgi-bin folder, wouldn't we then be able to use google to search the forums?

    The posts are stored in a MySQL database. I don't think Google will crawl that. Scary thought!

    I suspect it might, as long as there is a clickable link to follow to every page. Google certainly crawls through the data in our Access database (linked via asp pages rather than cgi).

    There are no stored Lounge Pages, only stored posts. Each time someone opens a page, it is constructed dynamically by the Lounge software to reflect the current situation.
