What settings do you recommend for htaccess and robot.txt files to camoflage WP-robot

You guys obvious can't read .. I can. And after reading this whole post I concluded that renaming the wprobot plugin directory to *anything* else and placing a <?php //this is it ?> index.php file inside the wp-content\plugins\ will solve the issue of google finding the wprobot footprint by looking in the plugins directory. And .. Actually there's no need to place that empty index.php into the plugins folder but only if you have a really old version of wordpress. Because last year (as far I can remember) wordpress added that "Silence is golden." empty index.php file into the plugins folder just because of that - to give owners privacy regarding the plugins they're using

PS: WickedGuy - Why you still insist on protecting your plugins directory from your htaccess file when the above works just fine AND can you please elaborate a bit further the cookie vuln ?
Thanks
Htaccess?
Let me ask this first. How is it possible that google can index txt file located in the home directory while there is an index file in that directory? Also, what about the subfolders in the home directory as well as the subdomains(also subfolders)? How do they find it although you have an index file there?
As I pointed out in my post, one of my blogs were hacked. I found vital private login details in the cookie file. Plz don't ask how it got there, I really have no idea. Anyways I added the protection in my htaccess and my problem was solved.

I tried renaming the wprobot but it deactivated. How do you actuall renaming the plugin without it deactivating?

You rename it before it's activated and installed... i.e right at the beginning when you first install WP Robot.
 
Perhaps I wasn't sufficiently clear with my intructions. I said to put an empty index.php into the folder if it did not exist.

Quite a few of the pugins do not come already with an index.php in there folders.

Should you wish to use the .htaccess file I supplied then you will not need an index.php in any of the subsiduary folders.

Therefore if MR GOOGLE decides to snoop around you can still have your WPRobot named the orginal name and not have to change it.

Hope this clears things up.



You just took confusion out of the whole process for me. I added the files and now when I search that folder in browser a blank page shows. Before that all of my Wprobot files were visible.
Thank you.
