running phpbb 3.0.12 and I noticed that the site is running phpbb ultimate seo URL, Mode : Advanced - 0.6.8 and it should be updated to the latest version, but I can't seen to find anything that just gives a simple explanation of what I need to do in order to update this.

Here's the download: http://downloads.phpbb-seo.com/phpbb-seo-url-10/ultimate-seo-url-38.html. Judging from the diff, nothing of consequence changed unless your site uses https:

If nothing is broken, I would leave it as-is. For what it's worth, only the phpBB-SEO premod has seen updates beyond 3.0.10 since that's what most use versus the individual mods.

what's a pre mod?

Where do I get the pre mod?

How do I install the pre mod?

Where is there any documentation on the pre mod?

Will the pre mod handle url rewriting?

Should I be using a "pre mod" instead?

If you don't have an investment in phpBB, that's probably a wise choice. They offer fee-based support options that will probably appeal to you. :D

Yeah....You get what you pay for, no doubt!

Dumping phpbb for vbulletin was like upgrading from a 79 ford pinto to a 2014 Bentley, worth every penny, So glad we dumped this!

Free support = "use the search feature"
Paid support = "problem solved"

I see it more like this:

Free support = "don't waste other people's time with questions you could answer yourself with little effort"
Paid support = "we'll answer your stupid questions because it's (unfortunately) our job" :roll:

I can see how vbulletin users are sooooo happy: http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/forum/vb ... bulletin-5

Guess it's a viable choice if you avoid their latest release.
