The titels of the topics and forums are displayed inside the url and this is done without any database queries. (=fast)
f.e. to reach this topic you follow this url:
After you installed my mod it is reached by:
You need the apache modul "mod_rewrite" to use this mod.
The demo board is available here: www.evop.de (please use the "cafe" for testing)
- Avoid double content:
Many pages in your forums are reachable with serveral urls. f.e. a topic could be reached with ca. 20 different urls. And they all display the same content. This doubling of pages are rated by search engines as spam.
You find this addon in "addons/avoid_double_content.txt".
- Replace old Short Urls to the new Seo Urls (f.e. if you ran larsneo's short url mod before)
Use the forward.php and follow the steps in the readme.txt.
Will it work with phpBB3 (Olympus)?
- Not at the moment, but I will update my mod if phpBB3 is released.
After I visit my forum at the first time it won't rewrite the urls. Is this a bug?
- No. This is a feature not a bug The mod won't rewrite if the url contains a session. The session is generated if you have cookies enabled and/or stay active in autologin. If you disable the cookies and if you are logged out you see the rewritten urls since the first page. As a bot can't receive cookies he will crawl the page with the rewritten and correct urls.
