    I currently have a blog on theproductjudge. I don't have access to the root, no access to the robots.txt or the .htaccess file. So how do i go about blocking the spider. I don't want that Chinese spider crawling my blog at all.

    I don't understand... not familiar with theproductjungle. Can you upload content there? Such as a PHP script? If so just use a PHP script to check IP against the known IP or IP range of the bot and redirect it to Google or something.

    Since you don't have access to your root folder on theproductjudge, and if
    you can't upload, maybe install KB Robots.txt plugin from admin panel if
    theproductjudge allows you too install plugins?

    i don't get any admin panel from theproductjudge, so no chance of installing something. I guess I will have to take up the issue with the site admin. But still will be more then happy to get solution by the members.

    Yeah if you have no FTP access and you're working with a fixed CMS, you'll be hard pressed to handle this. However, I know with WP for example, you can install a plugin which will allow you to write snippets of PHP within blog entries and other areas of the site. If this is possible within theproductjungle there could be a solution though it won't be ideal.
