2 simple questions: RSS feeds / Spider indexing (3 posts)

    1. Does this plugin prevent site content being accessed via RSS feeds?
    2. Does activation of this plugin automatically indicate to search engines that the website should not be indexed by spiders?

    I am also wondering about #2, /robots.txt handling, to be specific.

    My multisite installation has production and staging sites mixed, which means I don't think I can shoot a regular robots.txt file into WP root - it would kill products sites indexing.

    But right now (5.0.1) robots.txt queries get redirected to WP login screen, which is a bit too messy to my liking. Bunch of plugins get loaded, logs get spammed and other useless work stuff happens.

    It's feeling like the plugin could use a new settings field for specifying a custom robots.txt per subsite.

    Any thoughts here, Jake?

    Suddenly my feeds do not validate. I tried using the example under FAQ's but this created conflicts with other plugins.

    How would one allow Feeds to go through unrestricted if you IP filter the site?
