So....... Should I read between the lines on this one and assume that you might be in talks with Acyd Burn
The phpBB team
would be very wise to adopt what phpbb-seo has done into the phpBB default code base.
Well, I don't think they will do such thing any time soon, and I have to admit that it's not necessarily something we should want the phpBB Group to do.
I'm not saying that SEO and url rewriting are useless, but the main principle so far followed by the phpBB group was to release a universal script, and they did very well so far, phpBB3 is by far the the forum that is following the highest coding standards and that is the most universal.
This is an important principle, that should not IMHO be changed, and that would be broken if they'd decide to implement url rewriting, since url rewriting will not be available on all servers.
Then, generally speaking, SEO is where things should become the most particular, there is no universal SEO strategy, and not all forums do need it, so this in itself does not fit well in the universality principle, since SEO is going in the opposite direction.
I recently posted in a thread about this on phpBB.com : http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopi ... &t=1134585
Worth reading if you like to understand the several views involved on this matter better.
