This mod rewrite and sitemap sounds like everything to be reasonably done.
Am I in the right forum to download or view the SEO mixed mod rewrite script to see if it works?
I would like to do both the sitemap and the mixed mod rewrite
I am guessing that it does not matter which one is done first?
I am purposely starting new threads because the points are going to be searched for by someone else and will no doubt seem unrelated as your forum grows, but obviously feel free to delete or combine.
