Zoints is a company that believes that forums are the killer application of the internet. We want to empower forum owners to take their community to the next level. Therefore, Zoints has been developing an extremely powerful vBulletin forum SEO and revenue enhancing solution for more than two years now. However, because we are focusing on our Forum Network and Thread Tagging System, we have decided to release this SEO solution to the vBulletin community under the lgpl license. Zoints SEO is now open source and NOT supported by us. We hope that the vBulletin dev community comes together to take this already powerful solution and make it even better. Empower yourselves

Zoints SEO can be discussed here or http://network.zoints.com (again, we will not be providing official support).


Known bugs

1. If a user disables cookies, infinite redirect loop.
2. index2, index3 pagination breaks some things. Standard p2, p3 works fine.


Zoints SEO is currently incompatible with: POSSIBLE FIX. PLEASE TRY THIS AND REPORT BACK. THANK YOU!
1. Incompatibility with vBA Gallery link.
2. Incompatibility with vBA Links
3. Improper linking from vBA CMPS Recent threads
4. Google Maps
5. Non english characters - Character replacement is now available.

Hi, I have just installed the Googlemap addon and the zoints seo stops it from working properly. Is there any way in which I could exclude the googlemap page from the zoints seo url re-writes?
Or is there any other fix?
Thanks in advance.

Thanks for that, I'm not sure where I am meant top edit though. There is no part in the plugin manager that allows me to edit that bit. I've searched for it but can't find it.

Be patient, take a step back, see if the community develops it. If not, you're better off with your default forum setup.
I agree fully - looks like sitting and waiting does not solve problem of zero users on the site

I am abserving your piece of software very carefully. Since I am operating two really BIG forums (+2.000.000 posts each) vBSEO does not work for me. Simply mod_rewrite with over 2500 users online can kill each and every server on this world. I bought vBSEO, tried it, killed all my 5 servers in 30 seconds and got my mony back after a week of fighting with code optimisation.

That's why I like your soft - it does not want to kill my machines by overusing mod_rewrite

First problem - it is for 3.6.1, while I have 3.6.2 installed.
Second problem - php 4.x.x compliance?
Third problem - necessity to recrawl the whole site (aprox. 4.000.000 of pages per site!)
Last questio-problem - if I will join the Zoint Network, do you give me some support?

Regards
Tom

This how I added the code...
Your server doesn't seem to have mod_rewrite installed.

I'm not going to try and talk you into using Zoints SEO because I don't think you should use it. My suggestion is to wait for someone (or us) to tear apart Zoints SEO and provide the useful plugins as separate installs. Then pick and choose which you feel would benefit your forum. I'm a Big-Board owner myself and know all too well the special issues you have to deal with. Stick with your default url schema. mod-rewrite and keyword-in-url.html are overhyped and can do more harm than good.

As for joining the Zoints Network, at present, we're closed to new forums. However, that will soon change...

Hey Guys,

How many people want a sitemap generator for Zoints SEO? If the demand is great enough i'll release mine if that's ok with David.

Regards,
Nick.

EDIT: I also got custom rewrite rules worked out

a zoints SEO compatible sitemap generater would be great to have. i'm using the vbseo sitemap generator and it sux cuz it only generates non-sef sitemaps for my usage with zoints.

would like something that better correlates to zoints and has the features of this free vbseo generator and it's autosubmit to google

So I worked out a possible fix.
If anyone wants to try this (without guarantee!) to get Zoints SEO working on sites with photopost's vBGallery (may also solve the incompatibility with vBadvanced Links Directory) I'm fairly/quite confident it may work. (I apologise for the vagueness but I don't have good test installs at present )

in the "Zoints SEO" plugin at parse_templates (on line #1),
originally (Zoints SEO v 2.2.2) it should be
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

change VBA_PORTAL to VBA_SCRIPT,
ie REPLACE line#1 with
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

this should prevent the <base href=""> tag being added to the header which I think was the problem.


Again, apologies for the lack of testing of this before offering it as a possible solution.
Works for me with the links directory.

Thanks.
