Hi,
I am not sure if I posted this here before. If I did, please accept my apologies. I tried looking for my post (if any)but couldnt find it, so here it is...


I am using 'crawler' in get_browser to check if a visitor is a spider/crawler

$isspider=0;
$ua = get_browser(null,true);
if ($ua->crawler== TRUE)
$isspider=1;



And then in my code, I check the value of $isspider to dump the data accordingly. The problem is, that $ua->crawler always seems to be null. I am also storing the HTTP_USER_AGENT values, and saw using those that an MSNbot just visited my website. But $ua->crawler fails to register this (it is always null).

Any ideas?
