Re: Extra Variable in Topics URL = Poor SEO?

So within the same topic we talk about how terrible phpBB is for SEO, yet we also recognize how well ranked phpBB is. So either phpBB is great for SEO, or SEO simply doesn't matter. As always it comes down to the quality of the content & the quality of inbound links. No amount of SEO can make up for...

Re: Extra Variable in Topics URL = Poor SEO?

Depends on how one defines "CMS." ;) There's plenty of of content available on message boards, and phpBB provides a great backend management system to deal with it.

(Okay, I know what you mean; I just couldn't not say the above. :lol: )

Re: Extra Variable in Topics URL = Poor SEO?

I agree, but I disagree that the way phpBB is set up is a bad thing, especially when getting Google going in the right direction is as simple as a robots.txt file (and perhaps one should be included by default -- or even via a robots.txt manager in the admin panel of a phpBB installation -- which di...

Re: Extra Variable in Topics URL = Poor SEO?

http://www.example.com/page.php?page=5 http://www.example.com/page.php?start=25 Suppose both those URLs link to the same content. Or, even more basic: http://www.example.com example.com Both those are obviously the same. But both are unique URLs. According to Google's webmaster guidelines, Google's ...

Re: Extra Variable in Topics URL = Poor SEO?

I'm not for sure there is an "accepted form of proper URL architecture" beyond "good URLs don't change."

Beyond that, URLs can really be in whatever form you want; each with various advantages & disadvantages (such as ease of memorization, SEO, and so on).

Re: [ALPHA] Slick Profile

Its really terrible that phpBB3 has the option to create custom Profile fields but no Search Engine to search for them... its stupid :( If they added every possible corollary feature to every new feature they add, it's unlikely anything would ever get done. Rather, what they have done is provided a...

Re: [Dev] Referral Invitation MOD

That would be a neat feature; basically, it would be the ability to import lists of email addresses. After that, it'd be a matter of adding the various sources -- Windows Live Mail, Gmail, Y! Mail, Outlook, etc. It could then be extended (by a MOD to the MOD, perhaps) to integrate into the Facebook ...

Not by default; a MOD could probably be created for it, though.

It doesn't seem like it'd provide much security, though; ages can always be lied about.

I had the same problem -- everything worked yet the image did not show -- until I realized I had forgotten that simple li'l step.

Re: PHPBB3 Slow ...

Why would prosilver be slower? Its styling is done via cacheable CSS, there are no tables (which take longer to display than table-less designs), and so on.

Currently it hasn't yet reached the coveted "3.0.0" status; it is still "3.0.RC4" and climbing. phpBB 4 is still quite a ways in the future; I've only heard mention of a 3.2.x at this point.

Re: PHPBB3 Slow ...

I've a small board on a shared host, and phpBB 3 is noticeably faster (even with all of the "Load Settings" turned On in the admin panel) than phpBB 2. :D

Kudos to the devs for developing a top notch web app.

Re: [Beta] Evil quick reply 0.1.5

The two FINDs in a row ensure that the proper code is found. The second FIND appears twice. Essentially, the instructions for the second FIND mean "find this occurrence of code which appears after the first FIND." The 2-FIND method isn't terribly common, but it is valid. Just follow the instructions...
