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).
We have included the mod GYM Sitemap & RSS, but we kept the activation separated.
To activate GYM sitemaps & RSS once the premod is installed / updated, just browse example.com/phpBB/gym_sitemaps/gym_install.php.
Please read the SEO premod install file for more details. Installing GYM Sitemaps & RSS is as easy as lunching a script, no file editing.
