Great mod. Thanks.

I had problems changing lines that are repeated. Would be nice that repeated lines are show just once. I got lost in some others. I'll try again. But it looks great.

to:

<h2><a href="{VIEWTOPIC_URL}">{TOPIC_TITLE}</a></h2>

Was this the same fix you suggested? I didnt find it... too busy to read :)

@Paul
From here.

SEO for phpbb 3.0.0
1. This will fix all the "Return to" and the "Poll".
In the file: viewtopic.php
Find every:

Code: Select all

$forum_id = $row['forum_id'];       
Add after:

Code: Select all

$forum_name = $row['forum_name'];       
And find every:

Code: Select all

$topic_id = $row['topic_id'];       
Add after:

Code: Select all

$topic_title = $row['topic_title'];      
Notes: you should do 1st every installation SEO MOD by Handyman, then fix only those above thing.
If you have no time to read, then uninstall SEO MOD and wait for the SEO MOD Release.
In my forum is everything works fine..

If you have no other MOD installed or no modification in the file viewtopic.php, you can replace the file with this full code viewtopic.php: http://phpbb.pastebin.com/f5c9c5a01 (updated with forever in the pastebin)

2. And for pagination in the thread list, this will fix: here.

3. And for marked forum in the index forum: here.

Well, first of all, thank you for this MOD, it is simply perfect. I read the corrections that JinYoshi kindly gave, and I corrected everything.
However, I have a problem. When sending, or edit a message, I click on "View the message sent" and back to the previous format url, which is not the case with "Return to the last forum visited"

Another mistake is that the urls with the previous format, not redirected to the new format. He edited the file htaccess but still not working. Byethost is compatible with this? Because my site, I can easily configure an htaccess file to prevent access to the site without "www" and automatically redirecting domain with "www"
That means that Byethost allows administration htaccess file, Right?


Sorry for my english, I speak spanish.

After installing this SEO MOD, if i view the topics from a forum, and one has more pages and i click on page 3 for example, it prints out an error with page not found. Is there a way to fix this little problem?

In the MOD install notes, in regards to this line:
Before installing this mod, run the edits to the .htaccess and browse to yourforum/test-t1.html
If it gives you a 404 error or a 500 error......
I don't have a test-t1.html file on my system, so I'm going to get a 404 error.... or am I missing something here..... it has been said I'm a little dense sometimes.... :lol:

Is the Mod rewrite built into PHP and I just need to activate it? Or how does that work? I'm on a Win2003 system using php 4.4

Thanks!

I don't have a test-t1.html file on my system, so I'm going to get a 404 error
if you type .../myforum/test-t1.html and you've setup the .htaccess file according to the first MOD instruction you should see your first topic 'cause some rewriting happens. There is no need the .html file to be there... bla-bla.html gets rewritten...

So folks here is what I find should be fixed in this SEO mod:
1. the .htaccess file - when I tried putting :

Code: Select all

RewriteEngine on

Rewriterule ^(.+)-f([0-9]*).html-(.+)$				./viewforum.php?f=$2&$3
Rewriterule ^(.+)-(t|p)([0-9]*).html-(.+)$			./viewtopic.php?$2=$3&$4
Rewriterule ^(.+)-f([0-9]*)s([0-9]*).html-(.+)$		./viewforum.php?f=$2&start=$3&$4
Rewriterule ^(.+)-(t|p)([0-9]*)s([0-9]*).html-(.+)$	./viewtopic.php?$2=$3&start=$4&$5

Rewriterule ^(.+)-f([0-9]*).html$					./viewforum.php?f=$2&$3
Rewriterule ^(.+)-(t|p)([0-9]*).html$				./viewtopic.php?$2=$3&$4
Rewriterule ^(.+)-f([0-9]*)s([0-9]*).html$			./viewforum.php?f=$2&start=$3&$4
Rewriterule ^(.+)-(t|p)([0-9]*)s([0-9]*).html$		./viewtopic.php?$2=$3&start=$4&$5
I got the 404 error but I know 1 or 2 things about rewriting so I tried "/" instead of "./" and it worked:

Code: Select all

Rewriterule ^(.+)-f([0-9]*).html-(.+)$				/viewforum.php?f=$2&$3
Rewriterule ^(.+)-(t|p)([0-9]*).html-(.+)$			/viewtopic.php?$2=$3&$4
Rewriterule ^(.+)-f([0-9]*)s([0-9]*).html-(.+)$		/viewforum.php?f=$2&start=$3&$4
Rewriterule ^(.+)-(t|p)([0-9]*)s([0-9]*).html-(.+)$	/viewtopic.php?$2=$3&start=$4&$5

Rewriterule ^(.+)-f([0-9]*).html$					/viewforum.php?f=$2&$3
Rewriterule ^(.+)-(t|p)([0-9]*).html$				/viewtopic.php?$2=$3&$4
Rewriterule ^(.+)-f([0-9]*)s([0-9]*).html$			/viewforum.php?f=$2&start=$3&$4
Rewriterule ^(.+)-(t|p)([0-9]*)s([0-9]*).html$		/viewtopic.php?$2=$3&start=$4&$5
and I know it should work... Any comments?

2. One line in the .xml mod instructions file is mistaken :

try finding this:

Code: Select all

'S_FORUM_ACTION'		=> append_sid("{$phpbb_root_path}viewforum.$phpEx", "f=$forum_id&start=$start"),
and instructions are : "add text after this" - but to me what makes sense is "replace with"

So am I right? Is there a tiny mistake in the patch-action?

3. I use UTF-8 in my bulgarian language forum and some russians have complined about cyrrillic letters too - the thing happening here is that of all 30 letters in the bulgarian alphabet (very similar to that of Russia) 3 or 4 letters are wrongly written in the URL - and thus our brothers from Russia have complained that this mod does not work with cyrrilic - here is an example:

I create a topic title comprising all our letters:

Code: Select all

абвгдежзийклмнопрстуфхцчшщъьюя
but the url made for this topic is :

Code: Select all

http://forumstest.dev.bg/a6вrдeжзийĸлмнoπpcтyφxцчшщˉbƅюя-f4.html
So I'm wondering why bulgarian "г" appears in the url as "r" , why bulgarian "п" gets greek little pi "π" , and bulgarian "ф" gets written as greek little phi "φ" ... So tell me which part of the code makes the decisions for the letters ? I think someone have mixed bulgarian and greek alphabets... But I don't know if it is the mod writer or it is a bug of sth. else.

Great work Handyman and all helpers - keep it that way.

@ Hatake Ryuuzaki

I've tested it - it works for me - maybe you aren't allowed to use .htaccess files on your hosting...

I'm wondering why "/" works but "./" doesn't ?

A great mod I just say. It will be interesting to see what it can do for me in term of rankings. At phpbb2 it was rather easy to control the title, now I get even unique filenames. For anything it will make sence in my analytical tool...

However, I spotted a bug in my installation. If I click on any of the pages presented in the post - the page can not be found. See red arrow below.
