[Plugin: WordPress SEO by Yoast] Indexatin acting on robots.txt orheader meta? (1 post)

    I wonder:
    Does the "indexation" page deal with robots.txt or with meta robots in header of pages?
    - I already have a robots.txt (I can edit through the plugin too) and it does not seem to be affected by options set in indexation. Because that would work only if I have none? But then, why should you allow me to edit it then?
    (I feel the options provided in indexation are good, but there should be a space for custom rules too)

    If the rules set in "indexation" write in the header robots meta tags, fine... but searching about it, I only found this post
    saying that it actaully does not work wothout a fix somewhere.
    So ... I wonder!

    Thanks a lot for the great job pushed to everyone
