Your forum looks great the way it is.
Merci Didier de partager ta solution.


Sorry to hear you moved - and my apologies for the prefix tables issue.. hard to debug without seeing anything! )

But.. I am glad you found something better - you might also want to take a look at:

http://fudforum.org/forum/

I think it's quite an interesting forum.. and very well coded.

Let me know if you have any other questions.. who knows - maybe I will be able to help that time!

Hi everybody,

I was glad to test your hack but I had the same problem as 1000ac with URL like :
/forum/t/331//?&forum=23 (with the two //)

So, it seems that the problem comes from the prefix of the table in queries in the file seo_url.php. We don't have the same prefix as yours.

I'm not good enough to give a solution but I directly try to replace the prefix with mine and it seems to work better now.
I've got URL like https://xoops.org/forums/t/61568/seo-hack-for-cbb-v3.08/?&forum=23
(we nearly get it !)

I hope this will help you...

Best regards, and thanks for sharing your work

(sorry, english is not my language)


Indeed - that was the issue.

I completely forgot that my tables prefix are different - indeed - than the ones XOOPS uses by default.

You have successfully installed it This is the proper format of the URL.

I will try to update the package so that it shows the default table prefix.

Merci!

Hi Aproape
I have now the same XOOPS and CBB version as yours and I have a new problem.
When Suin's simplified URL on(with phpbb disabled) I get a blank page. When I disable Suin's hack in mainfile php the pages are loading correctly but it is still showing the PHP URL's.
With Suin's hack enabled and your hack disabled I also get PHP URL's.
I have been playing and trying everything all day but nothing works.
Is there any requirement needed in the server?


Hmm - try to download again the archive - same location/name.

I have slightly updated the seo_url.php file.. I think I found the issue for Suin's URL blank page.

Try it and let me know - merci!

I don't know what you mean above but other than that, yes I applied everything as you described.

Here is what I have in seo_url.php

<?php
if (!defined("XOOPS_ROOT_PATH") || !defined("XOOPS_URL") ) {
    exit();
}

define('REAL_MODULE_NAME''newbb');
define('SEO_MODULE_NAME''forum');

ob_start('seo_urls');

......


The header.php file is the one you give us and the htaccess is modified with the correct new forum name and works.
Sorry for keeping the site closed but it's open now :)


OK - I took a quick look at your site [thx for opening it! ]:

The only major difference I see is the /en/ in the url - are you using a multi-language patch or something similar?

Besides that - I would have to somehow be able to debug what is happening - it seems that the topic variable is not populated/sent to the url.. hmmm.

Good morning 1000ac,

I have the correct CBB version now but the URL's are still not showing correctly.
To view a forum I have:
/forum/f/24//
and to view a topic I have the old URL's without including the folder where XOOPS is located:
/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?topic_id=263&forum=24
I have it in a temporary folder and you can take a look here:
-http://www.mustangv8.com/en/modules/newbb/


First of all, I have to ask - did you apply all the instructions from my original post _after_ installing v3.08?

[I tried to take a look at the temp site you provided but it's closed for maintenance ]

It seems that you are missing some of the code that generates those URLs properly.

Please let me know - thanks!

I upgraded the site today and here is what I have:
XOOPS 2.0.17.1
NewBB 2.02
Suin simplified URL disabled after the upgrade.
I thought I downloaded CBB but I guess the problem is from there.
I tried to look for CBB v3.08 in the Module Repository section but I can't find it.
All I see is CBB 1.16 and CBB 2.32.
Are you talking about the module in this website?
http://www.xoopsaddons.org/modules/wf ... lefile.php?cid=13&lid=899


Indeed - the problem you described seems to be from the difference in CBB version [the header generator doesn't use the same variable - most likely].

The URL you gave me seems valid - I also found this one:

https://xoops.org/modules/newbb/viewto ... p?topic_id=61027&forum=11

Thank you for your fast support.


You're welcome

Let me know if this solves the problem..

Good morning everyone,

We have a quite busy site and - one of the issues we ran into is that people seem to constantly enter invalid [misspelled?] emails.

There is no verify email address on the registration form and I want to know if anyone knows of any hack or modification that implements that.

If not, we'll go ahead and implement it -- should be done quickly.

Please let me know... thanks!

I installed this mod in the last version of XOOPS but the keywords are not being displayed in the URL.
Here is how the URL is showing:

Is there any update for this mod?
I really need something like that.


First of all - thanks for the feedback.

I have a few questions on the above:

1. Do you have Suin's Simplified URLs installed?
2. Last version of XOOPS => are you running v2.0.17.1?
3. Are you running CBB v3.08 or another version?

We are running for the moment v2.0.16 - we'll upgrade to v2.0.17.1 in about 1weeks - 2week at most and if this hack needs any changes, we'll implement them right away.

For now - we haven't installed 2.0.17.x yet therefore I have no idea if it works with it or not out of the box.

Please let me know.. thanks!

Hello, aproape, thanks to your reply!

most importantly, you have the topic title in the url which in turn does help with SEO.


However, I have 3 doubts:

1)Does the topic title in the url help with SEO?



Yep.

All search engines look at the URL contents - be it towards an external site or internally pointing to you, the keywords in the URL - matter.

Quote:

2)If the topic title in the url helps with SEO, but the topic title is non-english(Chinese, for example), can it be written in URL?

3)If the CBB URL does not support non-english, is the hack still SEO?


Well, why don't you give it a try - and see if it works? *smile*

I published the code exactly for this reason.. so anyone can take it and adapt it to their needs. They might find it useful - or not - everyone has different configurations and goals.

We have no asian/kanji/etc sites on XOOPS and therefore no way to test it..

Let us know what you find out! *smile*

Good morning everyone,

Just found this thread and.. considering we have used the same script [slightly changed] to import XOOPS v2.0.16 users into phplist, here you go:

export XOOPS v2.0.16 users to phplist

Enjoy!


Here,
aproape

P.S. I just added some English comments - hopefully they help. If you need more info.. just ask.
