Site Access

This plugin allows to spiders and robots, like Google(TM), MSNBot(TM) or Yahoo(TM), to access the pages of the site reserved to the 'Registered' users.

Sometimes you have to protect interesting contents to get users' registration for commercial purposes or simply to create a community. But if content are not accessible, how can users know about their existance?

With this plugin the search engine can index these pages and bring to your site more visitors.

You can define an user for every search engine, and using the joomla 2.5/3.x ACL, you can define which pages are readable by each robots and by registered users and the pages which only registered users can read; or you can simply let spiders read all the pages.

Search engine robots are recognized and are automatically logged in, as a specific Joomla! user, so they are allowed to read the content reserved to that user or group.

This way contents are indexed, but no cache copy is made due the 'noarchive' meta tag, so an user can find the pages on the search engine, but he has to register to see the content of the page, because a normal visitor will not be logged in and he is redirect to the login/registration page!


Without ip check, an advanced user can easily impersonate the bot of a search engine, so don't use this plugin to protect very confidential informations.
Of course confidential info should not be exposed on search engines, anyway! Ip check feature will be released in a future version.

Awesome Extension

Posted on 20 May 2014

Was super easy to install and set up, works great!

I installed this plugin, enabled and modified it quite easy.

I could not tell if it worked until I installed JCRAWLER extension...

I activated the Crawl of JCRAWLER - and it created a full sitemap of my "Hidden" parts of my site.

I assume it would have happen whenever Google bot would have approached my site.

I just did not have patience, so I crawled it with JCRAWLER.

Thanks to the developer!

This plugin adds a simple but, in most cases, fondamental protection against SQL injection and LFI (local files inclusion) attacks. It checks data sent to Joomla and intercepts a lot of common exploits, saving your site from hackers. Filters requests in POST, GET, REQUEST and blocks SQL injection / LFI attempts. Notifies you by e-mail when a alert is generated. Protect also from unKnown 3rd Party extensions vulnerability. White list for safe components (at your risk ;) ) automatic ip blocking on attack Enable mail report and prepare yourself to be scared! Anyway remember that security it is a 'forma mentis', not a plugin!

This plugin allows you to add "rel" and "target" attributes to all outgoing links in articles on your Joomla!, so you can avoid to disperse the Page Rank on the web by setting the attribute rel = "nofollow" on all outbound links, and you can keep visitors on your site by setting the target = "_blank" attribute. Configuration is very easy, simply select the action to be taken for the two attributes. You can enter the value if no value was specified, or force a value or remove it. You can also add the code {mnf=off} at any point of a single item to explicitly disable the bot for a single item.
