phpbb3 / wp-united

Postby zappa » Mon Oct 15, 2007 2:44 pm

Hi,

I'm running 3.0.RC5 with wp-united (combine phpbb and wordpress) over here. What is the best option if I want to add SEO to my phpbb3 forum and make is search engine friendly?

Thanks in advance!

Seconded, as I'm thinking of using WP-United with one of my SEO'd forums.

"Seconded" just means "Me too". All I'm saying is that I'd like an answer to this as well because I'm thinking of doing the same thing.

It should not be this difficult, have your tried to install the mod rewrite together with WP already ?

As well, could you post a link to where wp-united is officially released ?

Too bad they do not follow the rhythm :
Tested with: WordPress 2.0.x — 2.2.x & phpBB 3.0 RC1 - RC3.


Anyway, since this is supposed to be installed after phpBB3 and WP, I think that you could try to install it using our premod instead of phpBB3.

Chances are in the end great that it will work directly, the SEO mods do not alter much of the original process, only links.

It's then possible that the WP united mod do not work at all with phpBB 3.0.RC7, since many thing where changed, but I doubt the SEO mod could make it fail.

You may have to merge phpBB's and WP's .htaccess, but besides, it should be working the same.

The phpBB-SEOs mods all working with wp-united except the Optimal Titles.

I have installed dynamic meta tags (working with WU), advanced SEO URLS (working with WU), and the optimal titles (not working). It seems the WU overwrites the titles with something else that I don't find.

Any help on this is appreciated.

Mmm, looks tricky to solve at a first glance.

How are the page title before and after you install the mod ?

A link to a working installation could help to better understand how it goes.

I guess it's not an .htaccess issue, at least as far a making those two working together.

Maybe it's only a matter of properly merging the two .htaccess, the phpBB one and the WP one.

You could play with the "more options" option in the .htaccess generator to generate one meant to be used in the forum/ directory, and let the WP one in the root directory. It should solve all possible issues between the two .htaccess.
