BB blocks Google and MSN/Bing search bots (3 posts)

    After the install, BB started immediately blocking legitimate crawling by the GoogleBot and the MSN / Bing searchbot.
    I even experimented by going onto Webmaster Tools and running a "fetch" - that confirmed the bot was blocked.
    Had to disable and thats that. Too bad there is not a way to whitelist the legit bots.

    There is a way actually. There's a file whitelist-sample.ini if you rename it to whitelist.ini and add the IPs to it, you can whitelist them.

    @trey - great. Thank you. That should be in the FAQs...
