Re: Rewrite Topics

I would enable SQL Rewriting. It will then save the calculated URL in phpbb_topics. The page looks correct to me, e.g., http://website-startup.com/forums/topic31.html That's shown by viewforum.php, but viewtopic.php shows: http://website-startup.com/forums/updating-wordpress-to-3-7-1-t31.html And it...

Re: Rewrite Topics

It sounds like you want "advanced" mode for URL rewriting, but you selected "mixed". See ACP > PHPBB SEO > phpBB SEO Class settings > URL rewriting type. Note: phpBB-SEO caches the calculated topic URL in the topics table. You can set that column to null and it will recalculate i...

Re: In Plain English

I see it more like this: Free support = "don't waste other people's time with questions you could answer yourself with little effort" Paid support = "we'll answer your stupid questions because it's (unfortunately) our job" :roll: I can see how vbulletin users are sooooo happy: ht...

Re: In Plain English

If you don't have an investment in phpBB, that's probably a wise choice. They offer fee-based support options that will probably appeal to you. :D

Re: A couple of questions please

If you've bought the code and don't know how it works, I would do a side-by-side comparison with the premod and your site. Then you'd know precisely what was installed (and hopefully figure out why). Here's some tips I posted in phpBB on a related subject: Generally speaking, the phpBB auto-updater ...

Re: Where Can I get latest Version compatible with phpBB 3.0

You're right, only the premod has been kept up to date. I'm not aware of theme incompatibilities. Have you reported these problems? For what it's worth, I think the phpBB-SEO code should be converted to a regular phpBB mod and submitted for approval. But that's up to this site's owner, not me.

Re: Where Can I get latest Version compatible with phpBB 3.0

There isn't... The http://downloads.phpbb-seo.com/phpbb-se ... rl-38.html should work with 3.0.12, though I haven't tested on it. If you don't want to use the premod, see How to set up a local server using xampp and try it with 0.7.0.

Re: A couple of questions please

It looks like you've made changes since your original post... the recent topics last post is invalid: http://motovlog.com/general-discussion/slipped-off-my-bike-o-t5257.html&p=43599#p43599 That looks pretty close to correct, except for the missing "?". Sorry I can't offer specifics on ...

Re: A couple of questions please

Also, is there anyway to sort out the old urls to a nice keyworded structure? AT the moment, new topics work fine? 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 ...

I don't know which recent topics mod you're using, but the required changes are along these lines: NV recent Topics problem . BACKGROUND: If you haven't looked at the phpbb_seo_class.php, it may help to understand what's required. In a nutshell, this class is called to remap "vanilla" URLs...

Re: one url rewriting

Issue 1: Unless you are using the virtual folders option, the forum URL should correct itself. Keep in mind that phpBB caches SQL results and you may have to purge the forums/cache folder (see the first page of the ACP). You probably want to enable the "zero dupe" option to redirect from t...

Re: problem with phpBB SEO after upgrade to 3.0.12

Not sure what the problem is... post the contents of the phpbb_cache.php file. It should contain something like this: $this->cache_config['settings'] = array ( 'url_rewrite' => true, 'modrtype' => 3, ... Or maybe part of the mod was overlayed? You could do a source compare of your installation and t...

Re: 404 After Installation and configuring

Normally the .htaccess goes in the domain root (/), not the forum root (/forums/).
