Usually, you can see in the Who's Online section some users (or even guests) which action is displayed as ''"Unknown Action"''. You may found this strange and suspicious but it's not at all. This action appears when you have a [[Modifications|Modification]] installed in your forum and this modification doesn't declare itself properly, so the forum doesn'r recognize what is the user doing.

Is it possible to avoid [[Guest|Guests]] view the forum by unchecking the ''"Allow guests to browse the forum"'' in ''Admin > Configuration > Features and Options > General''.

The reason are Spiders. Spiders are internet bots used for web indexing (such as Google or Yahoo) and they will be accessing your threads normally to index them.
 
Is it possible to know how many spiders are currently in your forum.

Why Is My New Thread Indicator Missing

When using a language other than English, the new thread indicator might be missing. This is because you have installed a custom theme after installing a language. This will cause the indicator to be missing in the new theme.

To solve this problem, in your forum's directory, go to Themes > Your current theme > English and copy the two files (index.php and new.gif). Return to your theme's folder and create a folder (if it has not yet been created) and name it according to the language that your forum is using. For example, if you are using Spanish_es UTF-8, create a folder and name it "spanish_es-utf8". Finally, paste the two files into the folder.

If you want the indicator to be displayed in your preferred language, you can make your own indicator and place it in the folder you created previously (in this case spanish_es-utf8) within your theme's images folder and name it "new.gif".
