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...

Re: Its been 2 months but phpbb forum not appearing in searc

What is your site? Maybe you have nobody linking to you. Search results are based in part on "trust" established by quality referrers. If you have none, then sometimes the only answer is patience while you gain real organic references.

Re: 500 Internal Server Error

You could start by testing on a local server: How to set up a local server using xampp . Usually 500 errors are due to malformed .htaccess files. Try setting up a test server and then adding the sections to the .htaccess one section at a time. You probably have a typo somewhere; the .htaccess defaul...

Re: Users able to view hidden sections

I agree it's confusing. The "permissions mask" dialog will at least show you why someone has permission:

https://www.phpbb.com/kb/article/phpbb3 ... ons/#MASKS

Usually this happens because you've accidentally given Guests or Registered Users (group) permission.

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

You could start out with the premod: http://downloads.phpbb-seo.com/seo-url-premod-12/ And a test server: How to set up a local server using xampp It may be easier to merge your changes, if any, into the premod than trying to update. You'll need to run the database update script (see the install ins...

Re: The phpBB SEO MOD - v3.0.12

...this makes no sense as clearly the SEO MOD should be installed on my current install. What you describe was true for the individual mods, e.g.: http://downloads.phpbb-seo.com/phpbb-seo-url-10/ Over time, most phpBB-SEO users started using practically all the mods, so dcz created the "premod...

Re: Regenerate URLs

I think phpbb_seo/sync_url.php will do it.

Re: The phpBB SEO MOD - v3.0.12

You should use the premod; it's the base phpBB 3.0.12 release with the phpBB-SEO mod applied.

Re: Problem with afterburner2 style

Maybe you are missing the base metatag, e.g.,

Code: Select all
<base href="http://www.yourforum.com/forums/"/>


It should be in overall_header.html.

Re: Post url problem - www.domain.com/#p237

Maybe you should try merging your mods with the premod rather than the opposite direction. WinMerge or Beyond Compare or pick-your-favorite source merge tool makes it a fairly easy job (albeit not a lot of fun).

Re: topic.html together with friendly links

You're already done. I tried this link using web-sniffer.net : http://www.bmw-fanklub.pl/post24.html It correctly redirected. Web crawlers will follow redirects, so it doesn't matter if your site shows a postNNN.html and the canonical version; they'll both end up at the same place. That's the purpos...

Are you sure it's being called in function.php? Look for this excerpt: function page_header($page_title = '', $display_online_list = true, $item_id = 0, $item = 'forum') <snip snip> // www.phpBB-SEO.com SEO TOOLKIT END // www.phpBB-SEO.com SEO TOOLKIT BEGIN - META global $seo_meta; if (!empty($seo_m...

Re: Issue while phpbb_seo installtion

It appears you did not copy the files from the premod location phpBB3-SEO-Premod_V_3-0-12\root\language\en\mods to your site. In the premod download, it contains these files, which includes the one mentioned in the error message you cited: acp_phpbb_seo.php index.htm info_acp_gym_sitemaps.php info_a...
