After feedback from a few users and some testing, I've decided to pull the NOINDEX settings from the new theme updates. These features were to allow blocking of search spiders (Google, Bing) from indexing various sections of Xenforo - giving more control over your SEO weighting.

However, since many users run multiple active themes on their frontend, this feature could become problematic unless there is only one active theme. I will be moving these features into an addon which I hope to release soon. This way, settings will apply to all themes and provide 100% consistency to search spiders.
