Translations Update :

Be sure to take a look at the official phpBB3 announcement thread to find out more about the phpBB3.0.1 new feature and bug fixes included in the phpBB SEO Premod.
Please note for update :
- The update will require some additional set up and .htaccess update.
- Code: Select all
# USER MESSAGES
- Code: Select all
# HERE IS A GOOD PLACE TO ADD OTHER PHPBB RELATED REWRITERULES
Your forum URLs will stay exactly the same, but URL rewriting is extended and User Messages search pages URL will change.
User Messages search pages URLs will change :
- We decided to go for a better url structure and to as well hanlde the sr (showresults, can be topics or posts in search results) option.
It's no big deal, but if you update, you'll need to keep the previous rewriterule you had in your .htaccess for user messages pages.
To do so, make a copy of your current .htaccess, generate a new one once you've updated, and then grab the rewriterule you had in your old .htaccess after (the line is longer):
and copy it after :
in your new .htaccess and the zero duplicate will do the rest
If you encounter some difficulties to update the phpbb_seo_class.php file, for example if you modded it, you will just have to use the new file and edit it to re enter your previous customisations (static part & delimiters).
Once you will have updated, you will have to refresh your theme's cache as well as phpBB's cache (ACP => STYLE, Themes => Refresh).
