Shouldn't robots.txt block access to index.php?[edit]

I note that all the wiki page editing and history functions are accessed through

Shouldn't robots.txt block access to index.php to prevent an excessive load on the server and ensure that the history doesn't wind up in search engines? -- Huttite 03:00, 9 Apr 2005 (EDT)

You are correct. Unless I'm mistaken, it blocks all of /wiki/ , which is where the index.php's live. robots.txt is directory based; well-behaved robots won't look at anything in that directory. --Evan 12:03, 9 Apr 2005 (EDT)
Yes, of course! You're right, it does block access. Now I understand what that little robots.txt file all means. -- Huttite 14:48, 9 Apr 2005 (EDT)


Evan, I thought you would be the man to ask. Is there a script that notifies readers that there is a ongoing change in the status quo and the information in an article may change rapidly? I.e. WikiPedia's {{current}}? Sapphire 21:32, 16 Apr 2005 (EDT)

Just to jump in here, but wouldn't that apply to all the articles here? I mean the rapidly changing travel landscape is kinda why a wiki works so great for this sort of info... Majnoona 23:02, 16 Apr 2005 (EDT)
I guess, the only reason I ask is because of the Rail travel in North America article. Amtrak has discontiued service on its Acela Express Routes due to cracks in the breaks. I wanted to have a current warning, but for now just added an extra "News" headline. Sapphire 17:07, 17 Apr 2005 (EDT)

Interface files for Japanese Wikitravel[edit]

Greetings — there's been some discussion on Wikitravel talk:LanguageJa.php about what the correct versions of LanguageJa.php and LanguageUtf8.php are. Could you clarify? This is currently holding up the expedition... Jpatokal 07:56, 27 Apr 2005 (EDT)
