Title not showing up in URL

Postby seomadness » Mon Sep 24, 2012 6:10 am

Sorry I posted this in the wrong forum. Here it is again:

I'm only getting topic#.html and post#.html

What am I doing wrong? I want it to show the title in the url, not topic# and post#.

What settings do I need to turn on for this to work?

URL rewriting type -> Advanced
Activate the "No duplicate" & the "Zero duplicate" options (Strict Mode: No, Posts Redirections: Guest or all).

Posts Redirections:
This option will determine how to handle post urls; it can take four values :
off, do not redirect post url, whatever the case,
post, only make sure postxx.html is used for a post url,
guest, redirect guests if required to the corresponding topic url rather than to the postxx.html, and only make sure postxx.html is used for logged users,
all, redirect if required to the corresponding topic url.
I install and configure phpBB-SEO (and other mods) for a fair price and very fast. If you are interested simply send me a private message.

How exactly do I activate "No duplicate" and the "Zero duplicate" options? I don't see any options for that. Also I don't see any option for Posts Redirections: I don't see it in the phpbb SEO Class settings. All I see are:

Activate URL rewriting:
URL rewriting type:
Activate SQL Rewriting:
Profiles and groups injection:
Virtual folder Profiles:
Profiles ID removing:
Common Search and User messages pages rewriting:
Attachment Rewriting:
SID Removing:
Highlights Removing:
Remove small words:
Virtual Folder:
Virtual Root:
Forum URL caching:
Forum ID Removing:

Am I suppose to go somewhere else?

it seems to be working now, I didn't do anything but changed it to advanced move. But I have 2 mods that don't show the title in the url.

NV recent topics and NV last post mods. is there a way to make it show the title there? right now it only shows post# and topic# for those mods. Also in the who is online box, it still shows member#.

Does this solve the problem: http://www.flying-bits.org/tracker.php?p=32&t=947 / [solved] NV recent topics (1.0.5) and Ultimate SEO URL ?

Alternative to NV advanced last topic titles: phpBB SEO No Duplicate V 0.6.6

dcz wrote:This is because this mod is doing more or less the same sql as the no duplicate, both cannot work together. The no dupe will achieve the same purpose as the nv mod (that is display last topic title on forum's index) except it will do it with rewritten urls.

This mod will get rid of post URLs on phpBB3 Index, forums, and topics and use topic url instead, for the same purpose, but without duplicates.
It will as well add a link to the last active topic in the forum index listing, above the regular last post one.

Thanks Stephen! I fixed the recent topics.

I'm going to try the SEO No Duplicate now.

Is it normal to have member#.html in the who's online list? Is there a way to show the username instead?

Activating "Profiles and groups injection" (+ Profiles ID removing) should do the trick.
Changing this option requires an .htaccess update

As search engine bots can't see the "Who is online" list this is just a cosmetic change.

Thanks the members work now. But I just installed no dup and refresh my template and also activated it and I get this error:

Nevermind I fixed it. Thanks for all the help.

To error was from having the NV advanced last topic title mod. I just deactivate it and it worked.
