Post by ettarus »

Hi there!
I have a PhpBB Forum 3.013-PL1 with PhpBB SEO; is there a way to upgrade to PhpBB 3.1 with PhpBB SEO?

Thank you very much!

No, you can't keep that modification, since all modifications that are used in phpBB 3.0 will become useless in phpBB 3.1. You need to replace them with extensions, and as far as I know, phpBB-SEO has not released an extension version of their MOD.

There is however another extension in development (early stages, so not something to use at a live board!) that you could keep an eye at for in the future: viewtopic.php?f=456&t=2288486

Generally speaking you really don't need any SEO mods (oops extensions) in 3.1. Rewriting URLs does not count for much these days from what I can tell.

It's one big MOD. You can use the Support Toolkit to clean your database of none-phpbb3 tables and replace all files with fresh 3.013-PL1 files except config.php to update to 3.0.14 and see if all runs smooth before upgrading to 3.1 but as JimA said, the forum will not carry over the old seo URL's.

Unfortunatly this is a very BIG problem.
My forum has about 10.000 indexed pages and very well positioned in the search engines; changing the url inevitably lose the positioning and it would be a very BIG disaster! :o :o

In the future someone will think to PHPBB SEO poor users who want to upgrade? :roll:

phpBB SEO is nothing to do with phpBB and from what I have heard the phpBB SEO people currently have no intention of porting their MOD to an extension

I am fairly sure that I have read of people having problems with that extension which, incidentally, is over two years old.

3.1 sets Canonical URL's in Meta tags. If you have that much faith in SEO, you'll know search engines basically will treat it as 301's. May be bit messy, initially, with user experience but not as big disaster as you might think.

I would like to avoid changing the url if possible; even if your idea can be a solution, there is always some risk.

I hope in the extension that says Sajaki!
