Members and Title Names not working

Postby nacho » Fri Mar 21, 2014 5:51 pm

Hi,
I installed a few weeks ago and have had trouble with the seo mod working.

It works on the ammended page names.

Member pages it throws a 404. wheatalk.com/member/katieO/

/phpbb_seo/cache/ is set to 777

Suggetions where to start? Kinda need this to work.

Secondly, http://www.wheatalk.com/straw-poll-is-g ... e-t47.html
it would be nice to have this without the t47 - i think it is the same problem as the member rewrite.

What the heck do i do? :?

1). You're missing a modification to the .htaccess. Check the generated one from the ACP > phpBB-SEO tab and compare.
2). The "-tNNN" is required to look up the topic number. The member names are searchable because phpBB guarantees that member logins are unique. The same isn't true for topic titles (i.e., you could have 20 topics with subject "Question").

Thank you! I did that at least 5 times yesterday. Today, 2 minutes, copy paste and works like it should.

Just a few more questions:

1. What about http://www.wheatalk.com/gluten-free-bread-mix-t36.html - How do I get rid of the t36.html ? I have the setting so it should remove it. It there multiple places?

2. Meta Descriptions. It looks like it's taking the first sentence in the post... Another Great Gluten Free Product By Bob's Red Mill! I'd like control on some of the posts and be able to edit the description. Suggestion on how is best/easiest?

3. Meta Keywords. I'd really like to be able to edit this on a per post basis. Is there a mod so i can see it as a form field?

Thank you! The first reply was very helpful and is motivational! Plus, it was good accurate advice. :D

1). You can't eliminate the -tNNN because it is required to look up the topic number.
2). Sorry, I don't have any specific recommendations other than the first sentence.
3). Don't bother with meta keywords: http://www.mattcutts.com/blog/keywords- ... eb-search/
