Virtual Folder not working ?

Postby lucycy » Sun Feb 12, 2012 10:55 pm

Hello everybody!
I just have installed phpBB SEO, i would have URLs like:

domain.com/forum-name/
domain.com/forum-name/topic-title.html


i have set 'yes' on Virtual Folder option (I kept all the standard values for mixed mode), but my page titles are still "xxxx/topic14.html", such as :

http://disdettacontratto.com/abitativo/topic24.html

I already created the new htaccess and I cleared the cache. Now I don't know what to do.
The forum is very new, so I can regenerate all the links if needed.
What can i do?
This is a piece of my .htaccess file, that seems a bit weird :

# FORUM ALL MODES
RewriteRule ^(forum|[a-z0-9_-]*-f)([0-9]+)/?(page([0-9]+)\.html)?$ /viewforum.php?f=$2&start=$4 [QSA,L,NC]
# TOPIC WITH VIRTUAL FOLDER ALL MODES
RewriteRule ^(forum|[a-z0-9_-]*-f)([0-9]+)/(topic|[a-z0-9_-]*-t)([0-9]+)(-([0-9]+))?\.html$ /viewtopic.php?f=$2&t=$4&start=$6

Does that create the ugly title?

Thanks for your help

So, no answer.
Since I really need some help, I offer 5 USD for the answer, to be paid via Paypal to you or to a charity, as you prefer.
Hope that this will motivate someone

Activate the advanced rewrite mode: http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/706/rewrite.jpg/

You can use "SQL Rewriting" too:

This option will allow you to choose url for each topic. You will be able to accurately set topic url when posting new topic or when editing an existing one. This functionality is though limited to forum admins and moderators.

Please Note :
Turning on this option will not change topic urls. Existing urls will be stored as they are displayed in the data base. But it may not be the case if you turn it off after you started to use it. In such case, personalized URLs may be treated as if they weren’t.
The feature also has the great advantage to fasten the url rewriting by a lot, especially when using the virtual folder option in advanced mode, and to make it a lot easier to retrieve rewritten urls from any page.


You'll be asked to run /phpbb_seo/sync_url.php afterwards... topic URLs synchronization is very fast.
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.

Thanks
I have activated it, but in this way I have to configure each URL manually, and I am not willing to do that.

I am used to Wordpress, in which you can setup "SEO friendly URL" : wordpress takes care of trimming a title in order to create manually a nice looking title.

PhpBB SEO is able to do the same ?

Upload the new .htaccess file, clear board cache (& eventually use sync_url.php). In advanced mode topic URLs will be "/title-of-thread-t1.html" by default but can be changed manually thanks to the "SQL Rewriting" option.

Thanks a lot
now it's working.
All existing topics keep their former title, which is fine.
