one url rewriting

Postby janet87 » Tue Nov 19, 2013 11:38 am

I installed seo mod and make it work in simple mode.

After a while i saw i made a type mistake in one Category name. I edited the forum and make it correct however the url does not change. I try the url with "correct spell" and its working. I tried to manually 301 the old url to new one but nothing happened. Can anyone please guide me.

URl with Typo:

New url:

Issue 2:
Also if i change the mode from simple to advance and make some changes, do i need to rewrite htaccess file and empty cache folder?

When i created new forums after seomod installation, there url are not seo optimized. Do i have to regenerate htaccess after I create every new forum?

Issue 1: Unless you are using the virtual folders option, the forum URL should correct itself. Keep in mind that phpBB caches SQL results and you may have to purge the forums/cache folder (see the first page of the ACP). You probably want to enable the "zero dupe" option to redirect from the old to the new URL.

Issue 2: By default, the .htaccess generated by phpBB-SEO includes support for all the URL types, but it doesn't hurt to double check by regenerating and comparing it against your current .htaccess. You don't need to purge the phpBB cache or the phpBB-SEO cache after changing the URL optimization type, though it can't hurt if it you do.

Issue 3: Same answer as #1 above.

PS: When in doubt, see How to set up a local server using xampp and test your installation on a local test server. Then you can experiment without bringing down your live site.
