About

vRewrite is an advance but simple system to rewrite vB's URLs. The rewrite system uses preg_match_all and str_replace to rewrite the URLs. It will rewrite any URLs that are dynamic ex: showthread.php?t= to /the-forum/title-of-the-forum-id.html. Why? SEs (Search Engines) rate results based on filename. Not only that, but most SEs give a "boost" to static URLs (what we do here) versus dynamic URLs. vRewrite accomplishes both of this, for all URLs that a search engine (or a guest) will see.

Installation

Please download vRewrite.zip and read install.html for more information on how to install it.

Requirements

vRewrite assumes that you are using Apache with the mod_rewrite module enabled, and running vBulletin 3.5.x. However, if you ask for support here on IIS' module or on vBulletin 3.0.x - I will be more then happy to assist you.

Contributions

I would like to thank Chroder and Cole for assisting me release vRewrite. I could not have released it if it wasn't for them.

I would like to thank the following people/boards for helping beta test vRewrite and making it a better product.

Gaming Ultimate, BP Gaming, NBS Designz Cyclez, Hosting-Talk and Forum University.

Copyright

I've spent many hours working and perfecting vRewrite. The only thing I ask you to do is if you use it, please keep the link back. If you wish to put it in your style instead, simply remove or comment out that line. However, if you use vRewrite you MUST link back. That is the only thing I ask.

Known Issues

There are no known issues with the latest release (1.0).

Support / Issues

If you have any problems or discover a bug please post here in this thread. I have also included my email in the install.html email for one-on-one support. The only thing I ask you is please do not post this email address publicly - it is my personal email.

Changelog

1.5 Release - vRewrite 1.5 has become stable, and all users under 1.5 RC3 and 1.0 need to upgrade. Support for 1.0 will no longer be offered, and you will be told simply to upgrade. Please continue to keep all bug and feature suggestions on the bug tracker at:

1.1 Release - Several bug fixes, and a few new features. Details here.

03/26/06 - Updated the thread to reflect vRewrite 1.5 Beta links. vRewrite files has NOT changed.

03/11/06 - Updated the thread to take advantage of vB.org's new prefix feature. vRewrite itself has NOT changed.

1.0 Release (02/19/06) - I have released the much awaited 1.0. This is the first stable release of vRewrite. All users now should be safe installing vRewrite. For more information, and how to upgrade, please see here.

1.0 Preview (01/12/06) - I have released a preview version of 1.0. This is the final version before 1.0 is considered stable. I believe everything should work in this new preview, but one bug (see known issues). Please see here for more information and how to upgrade.

01/05/06 - Updated ZIP to include a fix for boards running a table prefix. You do not need to upgrade unless you previously had SQL errors. You can upgrade by importing the product and choose "Allow Overwrite".

Donations

Any donations are very much appreciated! I do this out of my free time and work many hours on it - all for free. Anything to help is always very welcomed

If you use vRewrite, please click Install. This helps you keep track of additional upgrades and shows to me that you care about vRewrite


You may not post vRewrite ZIP or any files contained in the ZIP on any website. You may not also post any support requests/give support on any website other then this one, without my permission. If you do so, you will get a DMCA for copyright infringement. I do not want this spread to pirated users. Please stop piracy and do not share the source outside of this thread and vB.org/com. Thanks.

Support will only be obtained at:

My forum for example can be found on /forums so the second line of the htaccess file is

Uhhh....weird, it should work? There is a known bug with newpost, but that's only that it doesn't go to the correct page, and sometimes it goes to a random thread. I'll try and post a temporary fix in a few hours until 1.01 is released.

in 3.5.4 I get this error:
Parse error: parse error, unexpected T_CONSTANT_ENCAPSED_STRING, expecting T_NEW or T_STRING or T_VARIABLE or '$' in /home/ttuohy/public_html/forums/inlinemod.php(220) : eval()'d code on line 3

Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /home/ttuohy/public_html/forums/inlinemod.php(220) : eval()'d code:3) in /inlinemod.php on line 627
I had to turn off the "merge fix" in the plugin manager of inlinemod_start hook. Is this bug known? I mean, the merge fix is suppose to fix the merge issue but it creates an issue when someone tries to delete a post/thread I believe...

And I honestly don't know about the new version, it could be sometime next week or next month. I'm not a fan of saying a day any more, and then not meeting it and disappointing people.

You also need to fix the changing of skins while viewing a thread. It just refreshes it and not changing it.

Hi.
This is the first hack I've ever done to vBulletin and now I'm hooked! So congrats to the authors, you have taken my vb hack virginity

I do have one "issue". Everything works fine except this. Whenever I go into a forum or a thread, clicking the Main Forums link at the top left corner (here at this forum it is the one that says "vBulletin.org Forum") causes me to go to mywebsite.com instead of mywebsite.com/forums. When I go into my admin cp however, it knows that my forum is /forums so I'm confused. Please help.

Try this...

vB ACP->Plugin Manager->Plugins->Find vRewrite under "global_complete". -> Open it -> Scroll to the bottom and you should see something like str_replace('index.php',../') and remove the entire line. If you can't find it let me know.
