    Robots.txt Link to this post

    I used auditmypc.com sitemap generator, and i saw that assets and theme folder is getting into sitemap,
    So, i added robots.txt
    User-Agent: *
    Disallow: /themes/
    Disallow: /assets/

    Almost all the cms are coming with robots.txt file after the install is finished. Could SS do the same ?
    And, 2nd, will be bad for search engine indexing if i put in robot.txt
    Disallow:/cms/
    Disallow:/jsparty/
    Disallow:/mysite/
    Disallow:/sapphire/
    Disallow:/modules&widgets/

    Or, should i ask what folder from SS would not go under Disallow

    ohh yes man!^^
    and i think your Sitemap generator does not work with SS, because the sites are not in the folders..

    here is very easy going tutorial to make sitemap in SS:

    THX for that,

    my xml sitemap is working well (added to google and is ok). Only when I created the xml sitemap with auditmypc.com other parts of the sites were crowled (like themes/images or assets).

    My question was about what to putand not in robots.txt

    Here is how other cms is making a robots file
    User-agent: *
    Disallow: /administrator/
    Disallow: /cache/
    Disallow: /components/
    .....................................

    For SS i looked on both .org and .com sites and i saw only the Disallow: /admin is enough for preventing parts of the site like themes folder to be index by search engine or not ?
