Re: HELP Post titles Not injecting/rewriting

1). Try sync_url.php and confirm you have advanced URL selected (it looks like you selected mixed) 2). Not sure I follow, but I notice your description metatag is blank. https://www.google.com/search?q=site%3A+www.hiddenbelow.com 3). Sorry, no idea. Has web design always been this tedious?! Actually...

Re: URL rewriting working but page not found?

Once you take the time to understand how the phpBB-SEO mod works, adapting any other mod is fairly straightforward. In a nutshell, the phpBB-SEO mod relies on the fact that EVERY SINGLE phpBB URL passes through the append_sid(...) call. Given that fact, the mod stuffs the mapping of topic IDs and fo...

Re: URL rewriting working but page not found?

That usually means that the Apache mod_rewrite isn't working. It may not be enabled, or the .htaccess file is inaccessible (e.g., permissions error). Did you check the HTTP logs? Try something simple in .htaccess with static html. Does it work? RewriteEngine on RewriteRule ^foo\.html$ bar.html foo.h...

Re: Forum "down", not showing anything

Does your site serve any HTML pages? Maybe you have a typo in the .htaccess file and your (shared) host suppresses the error. You could delete/rename the .htaccess and see if that restores proper functioning. Apache doesn't have very good error messages for .htaccess problems (usually it displays an...

Re: Optimal Title Mod For Custom "Style" SE Gamer Dark Style

In terms of programming difficulty on a scale of 1 to 10, the Optimal Titles mod is 0.5. Take a look at the install.xml instructions (they tell you what to change in your code). The template-specific change applies to just one file, overall_header.html: Find: <meta http-equiv="content-type"...

Re: Have not updated since April 2008 and need some adivce

Thanks for your offer, but in my limited experience, hobbyist webmasters want Mercedes level service delivered at Kia prices. :lol: You could try Typo-IT. He's a phpBB-SEO moderator and has experience with such for-fee work.

Re: Forum "down", not showing anything

I would start by checking the HTTP logs. A blank page usually means the server was unable to serve a page due to an error. For security reasons, the error is not shown to the user. But the HTTP logs will show the error. http://httpd.apache.org/docs/1.3/logs.html You may also find some helpful error ...

Re: phpbb ultimate SEO URL not showing rewritten URL

That certainly looks correct to me. I've posted this before, but maybe you should set up a local server using xampp so you can debug this in isolation. For example, install XAMPP, install the phpBB-SEO premod (in a separate database), and compare what you see in the XAMPP test server with your "...

Re: phpbb ultimate SEO URL not showing rewritten URL

That's odd. Is the phpbb cache folder is writeable and the phpbb_cache.php options look correct. You shouldn't have to run the phpbb_seo/sync_url.php but it can't hurt.

It's completely indexed: http://www.google.com/search?q=site%3Awww.systemfunda.com&oq=site%3Awww.systemfunda.com#q=site:www.systemfunda.com%2Fforum Today your forum has 117 threads and Google returns 143 results. It's indexed, period. But just because Google indexes your site doesn't mean it wil...

It's hard to guess what the problem might be without knowing your site. Would you post a URL?

Re: Activate SQL Rewriting: mysql error. + questions!! ^^

It sounds like the data type of the column topic_url is wrong; it should be a VARCHAR and it appears yours is INT or some other numeric only format. I've posted this before, but maybe you should set up a local server using xampp so you can debug this in isolation. For example, install XAMPP, install...

Re: report.php not working

Not to ask the obvious, but did you check that it exists? There's nothing in your .htaccess referring to report.php. As a test, try removing .htaccess and confirm that it does/does not resolve. Remember that "old" format URLs will always work, e.g., /forums/viewtopic.php?t=NNN and /forums/...

Re: Users able to view hidden sections

To suggest such a glaring error would go unnoticed to the thousands (10s of thousands?) of phpBB-based websites is absurd. That's why I suggested installing a "clean" version of phpBB, since mods invariably introduce this sort of regression. It's not a waste of time - if you want an easier...

Re: Users able to view hidden sections

Perhaps you have a mod that has introduced this problem in "active topics"? It may be worth installing a fresh unmodiifed version of phpBB 3.0.12 in a different folder but with the config.php pointing to the same database. While I agree the permissions settings aren't very friendly, I've n...
