Re: [RC1] Search Engine Friendly (SEO) URLs 1.0.0

If interested, I've improved upon the code I posted previously to prune "index.php" from manually input URLs: // URL canonicalization if ( strstr( $_SERVER['SCRIPT_URI'], 'index.php' ) ) {     header('Location: ' . append_sid("{$phpbb_root_path}"), true, 301);     exit(); }  Adding that as near to t...

Re: [RC1] Search Engine Friendly (SEO) URLs 1.0.0

I didn't notice anything that automatically trimmed the "index.php" if it is manually accessed (maybe I'm just misunderstanding a bit of the MOD then...); your code for removing it from generated links, however, works flawlessly. I know my code wasn't according to the guidelines; I confessed it was ...

Re: [RC1] Search Engine Friendly (SEO) URLs 1.0.0

Handyman`: I love that this MOD so eloquently removes "index.php" from all generated links to the board index, but what about links which already exist to the board index? I think we should be redirecting all requests to "example.tld/index.php" to "example.tld/" using a 301 redirect to preserve cano...

Re: [RC1] Highlight From Search Engine

I tried this and tested it by following a link to my board from a Google results list for "Thompson."

Rather than highlighting the occurrence of "Thompson" in the thread, every instance of "a" (as a word, not a letter in words) was highlighted.

MOD uninstalled for now.

Re: [BETA] Advertisement MOD 1.0.B1

They know which IP address you log into the Adsense panel from; they also likely set cookies from that.

All they have to do is compare that data with IP & cookie data from the ads themselves. ;)

Re: [RC] Country Flags 1.0.0

Have you refreshed your templates from your control panel? It's likely that the older template files are still cached and so your changes are not being reflected.

Re: [RC1] Search Engine Friendly (SEO) URLs 1.0.0

With the MOD applied, though... What happens if a forum or topic is renamed? Won't its URL change? Is it even possible to account for that, short of creating & maintaining forum/post slugs akin to blog permalinks?

I think this MOD has that feature built in, actually.

Re: [BETA] Advertisement MOD 1.0.B1

From the looks of the MOD, most of it is just basic HTML; you can rip the Google stuff out and either leave it out or replace it with Yahoo stuff; trial & error should get you on the right path, but do make sure you back up a working copy first. :)

Re: [BETA] Advertisement MOD 1.0.B1

Simply replace the sample Google Adsense code provided in the MOD's template files with the code that Yahoo Publisher Network gives you.

Re: Extra Variable in Topics URL = Poor SEO?

Indeed, TM, which is why the top two SEO tips will always be user-centric: the better content you have and the better in-links you have, the better off you are -- whether Google thinks you're a 10 or a 2.

Re: [Dev] Random quotes

That doesn't look like a phpBB incompatibility; that just looks like bad SQL.

You're trying to insert three columns of data ('random_quote_type', '0', '0') into just two (`config_name`, `config_value`), which explains your error.
