At one point or another you or someone else linked to it and Google found the link and used it. This may have been the case when you used the snow stuff on your website. Your best bet is to place a index.html file in that folder, or use .htaccess to disallow access to that folder by anyone!

I like your front page theme, marge. It looks nice ...
Ooh thanks Johnny, when I've nothing to do I play around with graphics either photography, making sigs, sig tags or a new web page. Most go in the bin but I thought I'd keep that one cause I liked the tattooish style of the theme.

I'd would love to have a sleeve tattoo but I'm a bit too old, can you imagine how ridiculous I'd look when I'm in my 60's onwards? :suprised: :laugh:

Disallow: /wp-content

in a .htaccess file (i think the above is right)
No. That is a robots.txt file, and should be in the document root. And is useless since clients can still reach the folder.

@Marge: In your .htaccess file put the following:

Code:
Order deny, allow
deny from all
and put that in the plugins folder, if you put that in your wp-contents folder you will lock out all your images and whatnot :p

Ah ta. I've put the .htaccess file in that folder, can you see if it's worked for me?

Edit...............didn't work, folder showed up on Google. I've deleted it and put in a .index file instead :suprised:

That is probably the better solution since you want some of the files in that directory to be accessible now that I am thinking about it (like the snowflake javascript stuff needs to be available) so locking it down entirely is not possible.

I was having one of those mad moments with the snowflake plugin, I see these things thinking that sounds good but when Christmas comes around I'll wonder what possessed me and it'll go in the bin :speechless::laugh:

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there https://tinyurl.com/ycpxl
