I've been searching and searching but can't find tips on the content of my robots.txt. I'm running Vbet 4.2.3 with Vbseo 3.6.0 RC 2.

I assume that I need one similar to the one you guys are using?


Is this one okay or do I need the huge one you guys are using where you block access to each file by language?

hello,
You should to disable this pages from your robots.txt file too.
Why?

This address:

/forum/calendar.php
Have the same content like this one:

/forum/de/calendar.php
but the url is different and google will index this url (this page) too.

You can use a robots.txt file from our example (the full one is in the attachment in this post - lower part )

Okay. Thank you. I'll change that now. I'm using the 8wayrun media library mod on my site. Media.php is redirected currently to /forum/media-library/ Is there anything I need to be careful of with this in respect of robots.txt and translations? I can start a new thread if you like?

We can give you an example of robots.txt (we already use the same like this one).
If you want to have this site disabled for google -> block it (you can block url to .php site and to redirected part to - if this is permanent redirect) if this is a 302 redirect (not permanent ) blonk only url to .php site.
