    Hi,

    I just installed Version 1.2.8.7 and I can't find the robots.txt editor in the File menu. I only have the .htaccess file editor.

    Thanks

    You already have your robots.txt file in your website main directory?

    If not, please create a new file even without content. After this you will be able to edit it on WordPress SEO Dashboard.

    OK, that seems to work; I have uploaded :
    User-agent: *
    Allow: /
    and I can indeed see it in Yoast SEO.

    - but when I use Google Webmaster Tools to look at Blocked URLs, it still shows me the dynamic one :
    User-agent: *
    Disallow: /wp-admin/
    Disallow: /wp-includes/

    Any idea which one Googlebot will see ?

    Yo no entiendo muy bien, Web master tool me muestra un robots.txt y al ingresar a esta direccion efectivamente esta alli y me sale:

    User-agent: *
    Disallow: /wp-admin/
    Disallow: /wp-includes/

    Pero en mi servidor no aparece, ni tampoco con el Filezilla. Y en el plugin WordPress Seo tampoco me lo deja editar.

    Pregunto, si creo el robots.txt en el directorio no borrara la configuraciĆ³n predeterminada del plugin?

    Adding a robots.txt file to your web directory will over write the default one that WordPress uses.

    Note that you can be no-indexing things with the WordPress SEO plugin that aren't included in your robots.txt file

    I would give Webmaster Tools time to learn about your new settings.
