Yahoo bots are causing error "copyright removed"

I keep getting the following error : 

Copyright removed!!

It only occurs with yahoo bots  and yandex bots - and only on printpage.  I do not have any
of the copyrights removed, and am using default theme. 

Any ideas on what could cause this would be most welcome.

Hello rockyrails, sorry no-one has picked up this topic before now.

Do you have a robots.txt file in the root of your site? if not, setting one up to prevent the bots accessing certain areas may help.

Hi Chas
Just checked and no I don't - what would be recommended to put in the robots.txt file?  thanks in advance


Here is what I added:

User-agent: *
Disallow: /
User-agent: Googlebot
Disallow: /cgi-bin/
Disallow: /privatedir/
User-agent: Googlebot-Image
Disallow: /

This will hopefully only let google in and not google images.

Bloc should be reported. I have reproduced this. It only happens when Tinyportal 5.1 Beta and SMF are brought together and the print page is missing tinyportal copyright. This is the reason that the copyright removed error shows. up.

Thank you for confirming this. I'll let Bloc know about it.
