Forums RSS Feeds can notify yahoo automatically using the Yahoo! Notifications API.
You'd have to apply for a Yahoo AppiD.
I want to submit http://www.tvseriesmusic.com/forum/rss.php to yahoo as you suggested, but I'm not familiar with Yahoo AppiD at all! They use the word "application," so does that also refer to my forum ?

I read the instructions last time and read them before 2:43AM very early this morning. I read this yahoo page and got to this yahoo page http://developer.yahoo.com/wsregapp/index.php and this is where I have questions. Yahoo says that I can't change the information once I submit it. Thus, I want to ask these questions before submitting to make sure I do it right the first time.

*Authentication method: Click here for more information
Generic, No user authentication required
This appid will allow you to make calls to our non-authenticated web services

Browser Based Authentication
Use this option for browser applications
Which choice do I need to choose? Clueless.


*Web Application URL:
For example: 'http://myapp.com/welcome.html'

So, for my forum, is the web application URL http://www.tvseriesmusic.com/forum or what?


*Description of application:
(250 characters or less):
Is this where I put the description of my forum?


*Required access scopes: The user will be prompted to grant access every time he logs in:
Single Sign On, No user data can be accessed
Yahoo! Mail with Read/Write access
Yahoo! Taiwan Lifestyle with Read/Write access
Yahoo! Address Book with Read Only access
Which is the option that I should or need to choose?


Please reply as soon as you can and insert your answer in between my questions to avoid missing any. Thanks.

And yes google should index your board at least a lot easyer, make sure you get rid of SIDs though. But as previously said this also depends on other parameter, google sitemaps should help google to find topics url in your forums.

All was good until it seems I upgraded to GYM. I was wondering if you could tell me how to correct the problems I'm having with google sitemaps and warnings with my current sitemap set up:

http://www.talkingfooty.com/forums/sitemap.php

I have GoogleBB Link Enhancement 1.2.1 installed and I'm wonering if I need to uninstall that or change the rewrite rules in .htaccess. Could you please help?

I think it's just that Google recently got more interested into the lastmod and priority tags, so it does not like when they are always the same.

No more dev will be made on this version, but you can still delete these two tags in all sitemaps by just replacing :

Code: Select all

      $this->style_config   = array('Sitemap_tpl' => "\n\t" . '<url>' . "\n\t\t" . '<loc>%s</loc>' . "\n\t\t" . '<lastmod>%s</lastmod>' . "\n\t\t" . '<changefreq>%s</changefreq>' . "\n\t\t" . '<priority>%s</priority>' . "\n\t" . '</url>',
With :

Code: Select all

      $this->style_config   = array('Sitemap_tpl' => "\n\t" . '<url>' . "\n\t\t" . '<loc>%s</loc>' . "\n\t\t" . '<lastmod>%s</lastmod>' . "\n\t" . '</url>',
In mx_ggsitemaps/includes/ggs_functions.php

@ achievehigh.org :

The yahoo pinging feature is bugged in this version, sry.

By the way, the phpBB3 version is out : http://www.phpbb-seo.com/forums/gym-sit ... t3136.html

Does anybody know if somebody has already translated the GYM Sitemap & RSS 2.0.B3 to german? I had a look around but couldn't find anything.

Thanks.

Cheers,
Cesare

I need sitemap.xml
Seznam.cz only support sitemap.xml, not sitemap.php. Pls help. Thx. ;)

Can I use this one?

Code: Select all

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<sitemapindex xmlns="http://www.google.com/schemas/sitemap/0.84">
    <sitemap>
        <loc>http://www.example.com/sitemap.php</loc>
    </sitemap>
</sitemapindex>

Then activate mod rewrite for the gym mod and you'll have .xml urls for sitemaps and rss feeds.

Requires mod_rewrite on your server, read the install ;)

I recently updated my PHP to version 5.2.8. Since then, the sitemap.php file comes up blank. The RSS feed is still working fine. Any ideas?

hard to tell, since phpBB2 is not compatible with php5 either.

Might be time to convert ;)
