I have inherited resposibilites of a dynamically driven site. It was not set up with robots.txt in mind and changes cannot be made to correct that.

Typically, pages are generated thusly:



and so on...

I want all four of the 'id=1' pages to be crawled; but I only want the first 'id=2' page crawled. Can this be done, and if so, how would that be written in a robots.txt file?

The answer to your question is yes it can be done. If you research the numerous posts already covering this here on WebmasterWorld you will learn how to write your own robots.txt.

ps it is nice to say please and thank you when you are asking people to help you write your robots.txt
