You only need upload all files in /upload to your vBulletin installation.

3. Go into vBulletin's Admin CP > Plugins & Products > Manage Products.

a). Click on 'Import Product' and select 'overwrite'.
b). Click on the 'Browse' button, and browse to the location where YABBSEO[vB]'s installation package was extracted.
c). Find a file named Product-YABBSEOLite-1.0.xml in the root directory YABBSEO[vB].

Versions:
YABBSEO[vB] Lite v1.1.0 At 01 Nov 2009
YABBSEO[vB] Lite v1.0.1 At 15 Feb 2009
YABBSEO[vB] Lite v1.0.0 At 05 Feb 2009

Updates of YABBSEO v1.1: Latest version!
Please see the following post with detailed directions and explanations of yabbseo/data/config.php.

Updates of YABBSEO v1.0.1:
1. Now YABBSEO supports mysqli connection.
2. Fix a serious bug that cause script not to parse the external url correctly.
3. Adding a miss hook in v1.0.0 for search members to redirect to the correct profile url.
4. Adding some HTML tags parsing to correct some images not showing.
5. Fixing some redirecting error reported by members here.
6. Fix a bug for parsing the birthday members profile url in the front page of forum.

How to update your installation of YABBSEO v1.0.1:
Untill now, you only need redownload the attachment to update the php scripts files and then reimporting the product XML file. BUT you must be careful if you have modified the file yabbseo/data/config.php. When you upload new scripts, please don't overwrite your customised config.php. And a backup of old installation is recommended when you make any updates on current installation.

Some previous installation may not include such TAG parsings in yabbseo/data/config.php, if yes, you need add them manually(suppose you don't want to overwrite config.php directly)

When I try to view the header image I get the following error:

I did modify config.php to include the "curves" theme directory but no go..

I disabled it btw as this is a production forum and I can't have any bugs popping up.

http://www.xxxxx.com/forum/http://www.xxxx.com/forum/images/misc/banner_black.jpg

or

http://www.xxxxx.com/forum//forum/cyb_banners/NSM.jpg

Are you sure? Could you send me your forum url with the YABBSEO enabled to check?

That will make YABBSEO work with your wiki.
I actually tried that... but it didn't fix anything, so I had to uninstall this mod.

The problem is that I am using this bridge: and while your mod works fine searching for the "forum/yabbseo" folder, it cant find "forum/wiki/yabbseo" folder... since it doesnt exist. The URL to the yabbseo folder should be absolute, not relative.

It's quite easy to install as long as you're comfortable with editing your .htaccess . The rest is just simple uploading and importing product from your vbulletin control panel.

Excellent! That did the trick! Thanks. Now the only other issue that I believe needs to be fixed is some sort of workaround for the odd character names..if possible.

Check out this link:

http://www.forexnirvana.com/memberlists/*.html?pp=30

Click on the "^eagle^".....for an example.

UPDATE: Ok, found another problem, now the new posts links won't work...it badly mangles the link..ie

"http://www.forexnirvana.com/f-/--p1262.html#post1262"

oddly enough it doesn't do it for all posts.

AGAIN UPDATE: on my ok it works again now..I'm confused, that the heck is going on..lol

Do you have the hook "Search members" enabled under YABBSEO module at vB AdminCP? I have tested the same username at my test forum, and it is working fine.

About the new post url, I before came across such behaver also, but it disappear soon and I could not track the issue. But I am trying to modify the code to stop this happen again. This may cost an extra sql query to make the url redirect correct.

By the way, anyone installed my module experiences any higher server loading?

Oh la la, the hook was missing in my attachment. Now you can add it manually:

Plugins & Products>Add New Plugin
Product: YABBSEO[vB]
Hook Location: member_start
Title: Search members
Plugin PHP Code:
Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Or we will update the our module soon and so you can upgrade it directly.

I don't think it will work with VBSEO. Two products both aim to reswrite forum urls to the static one. So we don't have any reason to install them at the same time.
