Friendlier URLs by BOP5

vB Version: 4.1.10 Rating: (8 votes - 5.00 average) Installs: 54
Released: 14 Jan 2012 Last Update: Never Downloads: 336
Not Supported Uses Plugins Re-usable Code Is in Beta Stage  

Current Version: 0.9 Beta

The purpose of this mod is to make "friendly" URLs in VB4 even better.

DO NOT USE IF YOU HAVE VBSEO - It should already do this.

Demo: Test Thread on Qapla.com

For SEO purposes it is often best that only standard English characters and numbers are in URLs.

If you have a forum where non-English languages are used and you have letters with accents or other symbols in them they would become part of the links to your threads and your site would be indexed like that. However when a user searches for something like "Jagermeister" they will usually type "Jagermeister" into the search and not the technically correct "Jgermeister."

Previously in VB4 there was no way to convert to a automatically, or even to strip them from the URL altogether.

This mod adds those options. It has a built in translation table for the most commonly used accented characters. It also allows you to specify custom translations if there are additional letters you want to translate to their English/Latin equivalents.

It also includes a final option to simply strip (remove) any special characters it can't translate.

I am marking this Beta as I have tested it and run in on my own forum, www.qapla.com, but I have not tested it extensively.

You must have VB 4.1.10 or above for this to work, it will not work on older versions.

I'm afraid I've never tested it with DBSEO but I would strongly imagine you do not need it- I doubt it would work.

If you disable the subforum manager does the problem go away? If so I would say they are incompatible.

Probably, but sorry, I'm not working on this mod anymore. I have set it to be re-usable code in case someone else wants to work on it, they are welcome.
