What phpBB version are you using?

3.3

I add it to the wrong forum topic. I should do that in Support for 3.3

I forgot to mention also about permalinks.

Should I use permalinks that will show the name of the topic or to leave the forum default permalinks?

Example: /viewforum.php?f=4
Can be like this?: /forum-rules/

What is best for SEO, and what you guys who have experience with PHPBB forum can advise me?

Thanks

You just need content. Lots of original content.

There are 3rd party addons for links like you want but if they stop developing them you're a bit stuffed and your SEO will hit the floor if you have to revert back. The search engine algorithms are perfectly capable of understanding the URLs.
