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:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

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:

I have installed and after 5 minutes uninstalled...

Reason:
1. goto=lastpost link on forumdisplay.php is not solved and redirects always to one old thread. Does not matter which link I clicked, redirect points the very same thread.
2. problem with ABCDEF links on members list.

Well done, but I cannot afford having such problems with goto=lastpost, which is one of most clicked links on my site.

Ciao

vRewrite 1.5 Beta

Hello everyone, Bhuwan and I are going to release 1.5 Beta to the public, vB licensed users. If you need to post these URLs, please use [code to prevent unlicensed users from getting vRewrite.

To download vRewrite 1.5 Beta:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

This thread is NOT for support, or bugs of vRewrite 1.5. Any bugs or support request needs to be accomplished on the bug tracker.

For people who have a habit of not searching the thread, any repeated questions for vRewrite, will be ignored from now on. I am getting sick and tired of taking the time to reply, when you cannot take a second to search the thread.

I am still learning Mantis, and I believe you need to register. I am sorry that you need to register. But, please report bugs so we can get 1.5 stable out as soon as possible

Oh ok whoops I added the new .htaccess and overwrote the old product with the new, but I got this message on the very top of the site:
query: 4 - used to title member info
query: 5 - used to find last poster103,2,71,76,114,98,12,72,110,80,111,113,112,118,97,20,81,116,121,92,90,107 ,5,6,7,85,9,65,127,115,69,68,70,67

I disabled for now, maybe that's because I didn't do something right since the install.html wasn't updated muahaha. If it's a bigger problem, I am sure you awesome people will have this fixed soon. I only wish I could offer more help but I am a lot more clueless. lol

Sorry I thought you were saying that YOUR forum was not the proper place for bugs. I see you want them there, sorry for the misunderstanding.

How would modify .httaccess so the multiple themes changing works while in forum.. Let me explain.. It works correctly when I select theme before entering forums, but once the forums are entered and you want to change theme in there.. it doesn't work.. Any way to solve that?

That would be a bug, file a bug at the bug tracker. This thread is not for bugs of any of the versions, or support for vRewrite 1.5.
