What extentions are being used for this phpbb forum?

Post by Jason76 » Fri Sep 16, 2016 5:32 pm

http://www.charterschoolforums.com/

The forum above does not use the index.php when you go back to the home page, and the other URLs have a very professional looking appearance. For instance, a page would look

http://www.charterschoolforums.com/sugg ... -t180.html

Also, you can hover over a topic link and it tells you the first paragraph or so in the topic.

So are these extentions the forum is using free or paid and where can they be found?

Thanks.

The best person to ask would be the board owner.

Whilst there may be some extensions installed on that site most of what you can see is to do with the style - which you can find at the bottom of the page

I found the "hover over the topic title" extension on this thread:

viewtopic.php?f=536&t=2292626 (Topic Preview Extension)

However, the URL structure extention is still unknown. No, I don't think extensions come with themes. I looked on the ad for the theme in question, and it said nothing about extensions in the package.

But it is possible that the style developer has included features in his style that for some other styles would need to be extensions.

yes it does. like most websites the index.php file is the default page so the server is set to not show the actual default file name.

and the other URLs have a very professional looking appearance. For instance, a page would look

http://www.charterschoolforums.com/sugg ... -t180.html
why do you think that looks more "professional"? That is a purely subjective opinion. I don't see any need for those types of URLs and they cause problems with updates etc. in phpbb. there is a extension for that in development I believe.
Also, you can hover over a topic link and it tells you the first paragraph or so in the topic.

So are these extentions the forum is using free or paid and where can they be found?

Thanks.
as for that style, pixelgoose does create some nice styles, they are not free and they are not available here, and he does quite often apply custom code to them that would require a separate extension to work in normal styles.

so, the bottom line is that if you have questions about anything to do with that board you would be much better off to ask that board owner and/or pixelgoose.

good luck,
robert

I found the link with a free URL restructuring mod:

that is very old for a very old version of phpbb 3.0.x
it will not work with phpbb 3.1 at all since 3.1 does not use MODs , it uses extensions.

I believe there is an extension for so called "pretty" urls or so called "SEO" urls that is in the development forum.

however, it has not been validated by the phpbb staff yet and really should not be used on a live board.

If you spend your time making sure that the things that will really help with your SEO are setup you will be much happier in the long run.

In my experience, people don't really care what the URL is since all they are going to do is click on it to begin with.

as for SEO, the very limited benefits of those type URLs are not really worth the effort for the changes to the code that are needed to make them work.


luck,
robert

They have removed the board index from breadcrumbs (via css) and gave a direct link in the acp board settings i just removed it from my site as it can be a pain.

click there home button and your see blaaa/index.php

Code: Select all

/* Hide "Board Index" link */
.breadcrumbs a[data-navbar-reference="index"] {
   display: none !important;
}

/* Hide Home icon */
.breadcrumbs.icon-home {
   background-image: none;
}

/* Remove arrow from following crumb */
.breadcrumbs .crumb:nth-of-type(2):before {
   content: '';
   padding: 0;
}
Image

Code: Select all

<!-- IF S_CODE_UNTIDY and S_MESS_ON_INDEX Good If_Not_TIDY_Then_SUBMIT -->

viewtopic.php?f=456&t=2288486&start=60 is the URL rewrite extension found on this forum's extension database, but it's been abandoned, so not recommended for phpBB 3.2.
