The duplicate settings

Postby ronthai » Sun May 05, 2013 4:01 am

OK, please bare with me if I sounds stupid, but I need some info on the duplicate settings.

With my setup of the forum, there is almost 0 chance of having topics named the same.

I use Advanced mode and I have set:
"Activate The No duplicate:" YES, don't know why, because not really clear to me what is does.
"Activate the Zero duplicate:" YES
"Strict Mode:" NO
"Posts Redirections:" OFF, I just want everybody, incl. bots, Google, sitemap, to use the rewrite URL's, so no viewtopic and such anywhere.

An hour ago I had it all on NO and when creating a sitemap (with A1 sitemap generator) both the rewrite and viewtopic URL's where in there. After setting it as above the sitemap now only has the rewrite URL's, so that is good thing.

If I am missing something here, or more likely I do not get what this duplicate is really about, please clarify it for me in as much PLAIN English as possible.

Thanks, Ron

Hi!

I am this user: user/Stephen26/ from the phpBB SEO Team - currently not at home and on the computer of a friend.
(My passwords are highly complex / secure, so I cant remember them. They are stored in an encrypted database on my PC).
Therefore the temporary account. It will be deleted soon, after you've read the thread and answered btw.

"Posts Redirections:" OFF, I just want everybody, incl. bots, Google, sitemap, to use the rewrite URL's, so no viewtopic and such anywhere.

Please use the setting: "All". The disabled post redirections are the reason for your problem.

"Activate The No duplicate:" YES, don't know why, because not really clear to me what is does.

This mod will get rid of post URLs on phpBB 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.
Post URLs will now be composed of the topic URL they are posted in, on the correct page, with the html anchor #pxx as a suffix.

Example:
Code: Select all
forum-title-fxx/topic-title-fyy.html#pzz

I just looked at it but it seems I only have to set Post Duplicate to ALL and job done, if I understand correctly
