would this kill the SID for search engines or would I need some more code before the session_start

Code:if(!$HTTP_USER_AGENT) $HTTP_USER_AGENT = getenv('HTTP_USER_AGENT');
if(!preg_match("/Googlebot|msnbot|Slurp|Fast|slurp\@inktomi\.com;/",$HTTP_USER_AGENT))

session_start();

if ($setlang)
{
$la = $setlang;
session_register("la");
}

$fp = 1;


thanks

I am not sure what that code does in the context you provide. It clearly aims to target only specific bots but based merely on the code (and without looking at the surrounding phpBB code I can't tell you if it works.

Why are you considering it? If you use my mod those spiders already get no sessions.

Ok, that explains why the code wasn't making sense to me.

Without familiarity with the code it will be applied to, it seems like what it does is remove session IDs for certain user-agents that are from famous search engines.
