|Robots text to block all but index page of a forum|
| 10:41 pm on Dec 21, 2011 (gmt 0)|
I'm trying to generate an robot text file to disallow all SEs on all pages of forum except the index page.
So I want to allow it to index:
But anything else in the forum directory and subdirectories, I don't want indexed.
I remember a command with a question mark in it that worked in the past. But I can't find any guidance on that.
Does anyone know how to do that?

What directly follows /forum/ in the URLs to be blocked?
Is it any letter from A to Z or selected letters or certain digits?

All are letters, no numbers at all.
Thanks for the help.

You could do the following
The question mark and other wild cards are not supported by all bots.

Is it any letter from A to Z or selected letters?
Are they all the same case?

It's a number of different letters maybe 10.
They are all lower case.
Thanks a lot guys.

Works for me in real life.
mysite.com/ is not required
Order is important.
