Hello,

We see that you've posted your MOD's contents in your topic starter. Please instead offer your MOD as a textfile download (uploading your MOD's install textfile to a server and giving a direct link, with no registration restrictions), rather than posting the MOD's contents in your post, as you have done.

Thank you for your cooperation,
The phpBB MOD Team

BTW, the direct download link there posted is no longer working. ;)
Please PM me only to request paid works. Thx.

Just a quick not for anyone interested.

This mod works fine under version: 2.0.22
I followed everything from the original posting and used this to confirm no session urls:

Along this week I made a long-due upgrade from 2.0.17 to 2.0.22 and then immediately applied Cyberalien's mod exactly as per the instructions on the first post of this topic, and it went smoothly so I can confirm that it's up to date for 2.0.22. SID's are gone for guests and I can already see many topics indexed in Google without them.

However, I noticed that Googlebot is still appearing as multiple visitors online on my board after about a week. I came back here today and read this entire thread and I think I know what's going on now, but I'd like some reassurance ;)

My board is quite old and large, and along the years it's been massively indexed by Google even with the unwanted SID's (about 40,000 pages indexed). Are the multiple visitors online still occurring because of all those pages indexed with SID's in them? If so, what's the time frame I should expect for Google to replace all the indexed SID-attached URL's with SID-free ones, then stop appearing as multiple visitors?

The reason to appear SID in URL are:

1. Old indexed URLs

2. Backlinks with SID

You should wait 2-3 months before indexed URLs with SIDs are gone. Meanwhile place this line in your robots.txt file:

Code: Select all

Disallow: *sid=

Is this version (Mod version 0.04) the latest? (I've checked the "www.phpbb.com/mods/" database for updates)
If so, can this be used with 2.0.22?

I installed this mod tonight and it worked great at first. I signed out and no session ids at all. Then I left my site and came back later and I was getting an error. What went wrong?

Code: Select all

phpBB : Critical Error

Error doing DB query userdata row fetch

DEBUG MODE

SQL Error : 1030 Got error 134 from storage engine

SELECT u.*, s.* FROM phpbb_sessions s, phpbb_users u WHERE s.session_ip = 'd1ac18db' AND s.session_user_id = -1 AND u.user_id = s.session_user_id LIMIT 0, 1

Line : 390
File : sessions.php

This MOD does remove all the SIDs from the Guest.
But in the Admin Panel WhoIsOnline page, the same Guest IP shows up multiple times.
Maybe some changes should also be applied to the admin/index.php file. Or is nobody else not having those multiples entrees?

That is probably (Google|Yahoo)bot and has nothing to do with sessions MOD ;).
