Not sure if it should be added to the official page for requests, but I had a client I designed a site for ask if it's possible to convert "Guests" that are Bots to show as the appropriate Bot in the Who's Online list (Google Bot, Yahoo Bot, etc.). They'd like to know what Search Engines are crawling the site and when.

Now there's a coincidence Eric, but my silver surfers would be most appreciative if your idea could be introduced.

It would stop them trying to talk to guest-users and then getting peeved when the 'Guests' don't respond … !!

Doesn't matter how many times I've tried to explain to them that the 10, 15, 20, whatever 'Guests' aren't real people, it just doesn't sink in.

Funny old world, huh?

At least they'd be able to feel like they're talking to Bots…  :lol:

Become a fan of ocPortal on Facebook or add me as a friend. Add me on on Twitter.
Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
