    hi, I’ve just installed this plug in and I found it really good and complete
    I’ve just one problem: the robots.txt is not listed under “edit files” and so I cannot edit it at all…
    has someone any idea why?

    thx

    I too had this problem it was a perms problem. Change you robots.txt files perms to 777.

    And that should fix it

    good advice, I’ll check it

    Though I’m able to edit the robots.txt file, the contents of which do not seem to be applied to my pages.

    When I view the DOM/Site info of a given page, I only see those index changes made by the plugin and not my added entries for disallowing bots, etc.

    Any suggestions?

    Make sure your robots.txt file is at the top of your main home directory public_html/yourwebsite.com robots.txt

    Also, is there maybe a plugin that is over riding your robots.txt file?
