Dear forum members,
I have installed the mod and i am also using it to display the latest posts from the forum on the font page.
The problem i'm having is that it constantly shows the forum rss link as the first post...
Means that if i set it to show 5 recent posts, the first one will be the the name of the forum linked to the rss.php file.

How can i remove this so it will show only posts and not the forum link as the first post?

here is a screen shot:

Nice work ;)

Could be interesting to share you method.
I'm thinking about releasing something based on magpie, to add an additional level of feed caching in case you start to export you rss feeds on many domains, could help out.

Anyway, the idea behind outputting the forum link as first link in forum feeds, and the forum index link in general ones was in the end, to make sure we'd have it on feed eventually aggregated on blogs or other type of websites.

This to keep a link to the top level source.

In your case, you're using them on your web site it seems. Is it this much of a big deal to link to the forum from here ?

Anyway, I think I could somehow make this first link activable in acp, to let user chose what they want, even though I still think this links is useful both for seo and users, as it's the top source link.

To get rid of it on the general feeds, just open mx_ggsitemaps/includes/ggs_functions.php and comment these two line of code :
Code: Select all
         $this->output_data['data'] .= sprintf($this->style_config['rss_tpl'], $chan_title_gen, $this->path_config['root_url'], $chan_time, $chan_desc_gen, $rss_gen_url, htmlspecialchars($this->rss_config['sitename']), $this->path_config['root_url']);
         $this->output_data['url_sofar']++;


Then, if you want to do the same for forum feeds, open rss_forum.php from the same folder and comment out :

Code: Select all
      $this->output_data['data'] .= sprintf($this->style_config['rss_tpl'], htmlspecialchars($board_config['sitename']), $this->path_config['phpbb_url'], $chan_time, $chan_desc, $rss_url, $chan_title, $this->path_config['phpbb_url']);
      $this->output_data['url_sofar']++;



Should be enough for what you want.

Thank you dcz!
that worked very well for me...
I suggest that you put the link on the buttom with a "rss" button (gif).
The way i set up this "recent posts" was by making a module on my Joomla system and connect to the feed...very simple.
I have lost ranking on my phpbb forum recently, i don't know why but google doesn't seems to want to crawl my pages and they are in "Supplemental Result" and "Omitted Results...
I use to have 4000 pages when did: site:www.forhair.com/hairtransplant/
I am not sure why it is doing it to me...very bad
i am using the able2know mod and i tried to switch to your SEO URL mod but i failed.
I was wondering if there is someone who can help me convert and get my pages up and right, i am willing to pay him if it's necessary....

Thanks!

Had you seen this post covering a migration from the able2know mod rewrite to the phpBB SEO advanced one ?

The principle is pretty much the same with all phpBB SEO mod rewrites.

You still have 3780 URL listed for the forum, from where I stand, but, as a matter of fact, the second page only mention 270 urls : http://www.google.fr/search?q=site:www. ... rt=10&sa=N

and already hits the omitted results.

What you miss the most right now seem to be backlinks, I can only find 31 on Google.

So I guess migrating to the mixed or advanced mod rewrite could help out a bit, and the zero duplicate a lot. Give it a shot on a local install, you'll see it's not that much of a deal in the end ;)

You should work on backlinks I think.

And as well, please note that a data center update is currently going on at Google, backlinks already where updated for most of us, PageRank should follow. During this period, all the Google result are more likely to change than usual.

This probably explain why I saw 3780 url listed on the first page conclude right now about it.

thanks, i guess i will wait a bit to see if i am going up again...
You didn't answer my question tho...can you help me? i am willing to pay you for this...the reason i want to switch is because your mod show the title in the URL.

Have you tried to do-it-yourself ?

It's pretty simple in the end, just a matter of being organized.
