I use xampplite and the .htaccess goes in the htdocs directory. When in doubt, go to the httpd.conf file in the apache conf directory. Search for this: DocumentRoot "C:/xampplite/htdocs" That's where the .htaccess should go. Make certain this line is not commented: LoadModule rewrite_modul...

Get the Firefox Web Developer add-on . Then select View > Toolbars > Web Developer Toolbar. The CSS > View CSS and View > CSS Style Information menu choices makes it a lot easier to navigate a page. In this case, there's a bunch of width tags sprinkled in the CSS, e.g.: http://demo.phpbb3styles.net/...

It could be in index_body.tpl, but it looked like the <meta> was before the index body content. Either way, a quick scan of your install should reveal all.

Re: Index Refresh

Hi, I installed a mod a few years back, which makes the forum index refresh at a set period of time. My site seems to be struggling at the moment, especially when there is more than 250 users at a time in the forum. I think it is because the index page is refreshing itself too often? Egads, yes. It...

It's in €, but I don't see why similar offers would not exsist in the $ zone. If such a deal exists in the US, it's well hidden. Thanks ultimatehandyman for the mention of 1&1, it looks like a nice lower tech alternative. The only thing that gives me pause is the min contract periods. That coul...

Well, a new disallow in the robots.txt could need years to be fully taken into account by bots. Google should be faster than other, but it depends, it can take a long time especially if the pages previously weren't disallowed and already indexed. If bots traversing old profile links really bothers ...

phpBB generates many, many duplicate URLs. For example, the "post" URLs refer to the same page, but search engines traverse them anyway, which wastes your server resources. Same for the pagination URLs. Long ago, adding the same content many many times into search indices was a favored str...

Ha Ha, when I joined here at first I thought that DCZ and HB was the same person :D I confuse dcz and SeO too. I'm the one who lives in the US but lived in France. dcz/SeO is the one who lives in France. If I wrote in French, the difference would become painfully evident, hence why I stay on the En...
