Information

What does this modification do?
This modification will allow you to automatically have more search engine friendly URLs in your vBulletin. A forum which would normally display as forumdisplay?f=1 will now appear as f1-forumtitle.html and the same with threads. Having keywords in your URL can be of an advantage in search-engine ranking.

Requirements:
  • You must have mod_rewrite apache module enabled on your server. Contact your host for more information.
  • This will not work well for non-english boards as it strips most non-alpha numeric characters. E.g. would be stripped on french boards etc

Installation

I found that a little suspicious as well. VBSeo is far better than any free application, in my opinion.

I'm still wondering, is there an easy way to rewrite user's pages so everything is rewritten, not just forums and threads?

Also, is there anyway to rewrite it so when someone goes to showthread.php or whatever, that it redirects to the proper mod_Rewritten page? I don't want anyone being able to go to a regular thread, just the rewritten threads.

I have 20 replies before page splits, yet this hack forces my showthread to be 10, so it results in my forumdisplay to have the page numbers based on 20 replies and inside the thread there is 4 pages, when my thread should only be 2.

We stress tested the hack on our beta board and found one strange thing. If you name the a thread like this: "p2p macht das Forum kaputt, hehe" you will get "http://************/t19-p2p-macht-das-forum-kaputt-hehe.html"
You will always get to the second page off this thread. Also the pagenav for page shows: "http://******/t19-p-p2p-macht-das-forum-kaputt-hehe.html" you will get to the second page. I believe the first page must have a "p1" instead of only a "p".

I think the 'newestpost' should be rewritten too because it's still showing the php file for that. This plugin needs some updating to rewrite everything instead of just bits and pieces....

mod rewrite doesn't handle db lookups, so it would not know the name of the thread by the url itself.

something would have to be created in php itself. it would need to read the url and make a query if the pattern matched showthread.php.

I haven't read through this entire thread so I appologize if this has been mentioned, but I noticed that the 'whos online' area will not display correctly if a user is viewing a re-written thread.

It just shows 'viewing thread' without the link below it. You can tell they are viewing a re-written url by hovering over the question mark.

I've got a idea as alittle workaround for the WOL-Problem:

Couldn't you take the inforamtion, displayed in on the questionmark and parse it to the Line below "viewing Thread: " ?

You can see it by the URL which Thread it is and its mor comfortable then waiting for the alt-tag on each single user..

Ditto. This hack breaks any user's preference as to how many posts they want per page, and does all at 10 posts per page

Hello Dean

If I install this mod but later decide to uninstall it, is there anyway to modify the htaccess so that any mod-rewritten pages indexed by google still find their way to the correct thread?

The latest version does no such thing, I use 40 posts per page based on my preferences - the most recent beta was/is available on the teckreviews site mentioned in earlier posts.
