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 click on the link "Mark forums read" on forum home (index.php), it redirects to this URL but no forums are marked as read afterwards.

With YABBSEO deactivated, it redirects to and the forums are successfully marked as read.

Any help appreciated

Thanks in advance & kind regards,
