Thank you for your prompt reply! I do have the URL rewriting type set to Advanced (I tried all 3 out of desperation) and I also did the syncing but the issue remains. Here are my current settings:
Activate URL rewriting: YES
URL rewriting type: Advanced
Activate SQL Rewriting: No
Profiles and groups injection: No
Virtual folder Profiles: No
Profiles ID removing: No
Common Search and User messages pages rewriting: No
Attachment Rewriting: No
SID Removing: No
Highlights Removing: No
Remove small words: No
Virtual Folder: No
Virtual Root: No
Forum URL caching: Yes
Forum ID Removing: Yes
phpBB SEO No Duplicate-I installed this in hopes that it would help resolve the issue, but it did not.
Activate The No duplicate: No
Yesterday, I activated the SQL Rewriting and it gave me a link to the phpbb_seo/sync_url.php page where I tried to reset all topic URLs and then syncing, but nothing seemed to work. You mentioned:
Note: phpBB-SEO caches the calculated topic URL in the topics table. You can set that column to null and it will recalculate it next time, or you can run the phpbb_seo/sync_url.php to force a recalculation for all URLs.
Set that column to null? Would you please explain further? This is all very new to me and that threw me. Is this in the phpMyAdmin or somewhere in the ACP? I found a table in the phpMyAdmin phpbb3_topics
and I viewed it and it showed the correct URLs, but I wasn't sure what to do.
I really appreciate all of your help. Thank you.
