I’ve been using this plugin to limit access to a photo gallery of my young son, so only selected friends and family members can access it. It generally works well, so thanks for creating it.
When I set the website up I blocked search engines in Settings > Privacy, which added meta name=robots content=’noindex,nofollow’ to the pages within the site. However, Friends Only doesn’t seem to take any notice of this setting, meaning that the password page (effectively the new homepage) of my site is now listed by search engines.
Is there any chance of an update to the plugin so it takes note of the privacy settings? I’d have thought that many people who want to restrict access would also like their site not to be listed by search engines. I could block spiders via htaccess but thought I should raise it here too.
