    I found that search engines do not like forums very much. Something to do with session id's and they just skip these types of sites because of it. I have modified our session handler to allow these search engines to scan and index our forums. This could be GREAT if it works. Others using the modification claim success. It would mean people searching on google might end up with links back to our forum posts. This could generate a lot of traffic.

    It's been a good day, have gotten through a lot of tweaking that I've wanted to finish for months. :smile:

    This means I can post faster, I'll not have to wait for my wife to be around to check everything before I push SUBMIT.
