Awesome! Can it coexist with Search Engine Friendly (SEO) URLs 1.0.0 RC4 ?

I uninstalled phpBB portal because I couldn't click to the forum page but the portal one.

Hi,

Just wondering if there's an option to have some boxes on the left when viewing the forum itself?

Thanks
Kirsty

Try http://www.phpbb-seo.com/boards/advance ... 88de5bdcb9
together with the Zero Duplicate Mod, this redirects every url to the one rewritten. Try http://www.roqbar.de

Hi, love the mod! Everything worked great except my nav bar for the portal.php page is just a period or dot. It also is a dot if I try to add this page to my favorites.

Where I can fix that?

Here is a picture of what I'm talking about.

That's a bug - already fixed:

Just follow the link in nickvergessens comment. It will lead you to the diff to see what to do.

The fix will be included in the next beta. ;)
