Re: Advanced Meta Tags

Interesting mod, I believe I have seem this in use on another phpbb3 forum. I wonder how effective Meta tags are for SEO? I know that when I search for things on certain sites especially ones where users can upload their own content e.g. pictures, keywords are used to guide the searches on that site...

Re: [DEV] Store MOD (formerly wGEric Store MOD for phpBB2)

I was looking for a store mod and got excited reading this. It looks a lot more detailed than the other one (for now). I hope the other shop mod author decides to implement some of these features down the road. This was exactly what I thought when I saw this mod...its such a shame! I think there is...

Re: How to make yourdomain.com/phpBB3/ to just yourdomain.com

Oh just wondering does phpBB ability to find the correct path also apply to the paths settings of the images (located in ACP -> Server Setting) the smiles, icon, upload_icon, and the rank. If all phpBB3 files were moved in root would the correct paths still be the default values? Its saids to define...

Re: How to make yourdomain.com/phpBB3/ to just yourdomain.com

I am a bit confused... Sorry about that. The point is that unless you tell phpBB to force the server settings, it seems to ignore whatever you put there. It should be set correctly, of course, but you seemed to be asking why it was making no difference, and the reason is that phpBB seems to find it...

Re: Redirect yourdomain.com to yourdomain.com/phpBB3

Thank for replying to my threads steve!
I worry that if I did drag out all the phpBB3 files to the root folder in the future some files may be created in the root with or without my knowledge and when I go back to putting everything back in the phpBB3 folder I may drag along something extra :) ...

Thats weird...ok I am curious can I make up a cookie name? instead of phpbb3_XXXXX can I put mydomainname_XXXXX - the XXXXX being random character or numbers?

Re: Change file folder name from phpBB3

You can call the folder whatever you want at any stage in the installation/running. Just enter the new name in the server settings and then change the folder name. You should also check the cookie information. I am sure I know how to change the folder name and script path setting in ACP. What do I ...

Re: Redirect yourdomain.com to yourdomain.com/phpBB3

Thanks for the helpful replies! :D I am still debating if I should just grab everything within my forum folder (phpBB3) and drop it in the root folder vs. redirecting to the forum. I am trying to figure out which is best...I just dont want to mess up when I am too far in building the site...or maybe...

Re: How to make yourdomain.com/phpBB3/ to just yourdomain.com

I am a bit confused...let see if I am getting this down. Alright so I have moved everything within phpBB3 into my root folder. The site now points directly to board index when I go to yourdomain.com. The script path was left on default /phpBB3, can the script path be left an default /phpBB3 or shoul...

Redirect yourdomain.com to yourdomain.com/phpBB3

I am wondering which is the best approach to take. I currently have phpBB3 installed were if I go to yourdomain.com its goes to a plain page with links to folders one being phpBB3. I have moved all the files in the phpBB3 folder into the root file so that when I go to yourdomain.com it goes to the b...

Change file folder name from phpBB3

I have read a few post but want to ask to for further inputs. I would like the phpBB3 folder to be called "forum" what I have done in the past was rename the phpBB3 folder to 'forum' after uploading to the site and proceed with install using yourdomain.com/forum. I am not sure but I think I have rea...

Re: How to make yourdomain.com/phpBB3/ to just yourdomain.com

My (admittedly limited) exprience is that the board attempts to determine its location dynamically. The path setting appears not be enforced unless the admin opts to force the server settings. The board does try to guess the correct path which is correct when I installed the board, but since I have...
