Re: SEO friendly permalinks with topic titles in the URL's?

Update: Hi everyone. An update. I contacted the owner of the Cambodian Expats Online forum that I linked above. He said that his web developer got the mod to rewrite URLs into topic titles long ago and since then, the developer has custom designed it to work with newer versions of phpbb. So I guess ...

Re: Quotation marks/apostrophes from phpbb2 posts turned into strange symbols. Why did this happen?

Thanks. Can MySQL just auto replace all instances of the symbols with the right quotation marks? Rather than one at a time? Or what about SSH? I heard you can use SSH to reparse the forum too. Can that be used to automate a mass edit on every post?

Re: SEO friendly permalinks with topic titles in the URL's?

How can that be? Phpbb threads usually have "viewtopic.php" in them, not "topic.html". Yet this board says it uses phpbb at the bottom. How did they change all the thread titles like that? It's done with htaccess rewrite, requests for topic123456.html are internally sent to viewtopic.php?t=123456. ...

Re: SEO friendly permalinks with topic titles in the URL's?

Keep in mind that permalinks in URL's are still important and relevant and affect Google search ranking. All the authoritative SEO blogs say permalinks still matter in 2020. No, they are NOT. I don't know about others but Neil Patel is a liar who just writes content to get views and sell his affili...

Re: Quotation marks/apostrophes from phpbb2 posts turned into strange symbols. Why did this happen?

That's so weird. Why are there different quotation marks? Why can't they be all the same? Why the extra layer of complexity? Isn't it unnecessary? Does Microsoft just like to create trouble? Is there any easy way to convert all the quotation marks to normal or the weird characters back to normal? Or...

Re: SEO friendly permalinks with topic titles in the URL's?

Question: I found a Cambodia Online Expats forum that uses phpbb, and in some of their subforums, the topic threads have topic titles in the URLs. For example this one: https://cambodiaexpatsonline.com/the-road/foreigner-quarantine-arrival-price-list-t38723.html But it seems only the threads in the ...

Re: Quotation marks/apostrophes from phpbb2 posts turned into strange symbols. Why did this happen?

some of my posts Look closer: it happened to all your posts when using anything outside ASCII. If you would have used " and ' always (or not let Word automatically replace/choose special characters) instead of only sometimes then those wouldn't come up now. Now the damage is done (that's why conver...

Quotation marks/apostrophes from phpbb2 posts turned into strange symbols. Why did this happen?

Hi everyone, I noticed that some of my posts from phpbb2 that were converted to phpbb3 have this weird thing where the quotation marks and apostrophes are turned into strange symbols. I noticed this from some of my web pages created in Microsoft Word too. Here is an example. https://www.happierabroa...

Wow EA117. That is complex. I'm not sure I understand all your instructions. Seems very technical. Thanks. Btw, here is an example of a hidden URL you asked about. I chose one that was the least controversial and only contained a joke. https://mail.happierabroad.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=44&t=42581 ...

Btw everyone. Just to let you know. I noticed that even when I have a sitemap for the whole forum that includes every topic, Google still does not index them all. It only indexes about half the topics in my case. I read that Google does not index every topic on the sitemap because if its AI bot feel...

Re: Google indexing posts

KYPREO or anyone else. I got a related question about Google Webmaster Tools. There's a section in it called "URL Parameters". I've never understood how to set them. I think you only need the parameters like "f" and "t" right? But the thing is, topics can have both "f" and "t" even though "t" is eno...
