Hi, two questions:

1. Is there any way, hack or module to shorter urls? Example: "myxoops.com/newbb", instead of "myxoops.com/modules/newbb".

2. What must I do to change the name of a module, example: "forums" instead of "newbb"

Many thanks,
Baldur

For both cases, use Apache mod_rewrite

Use 2.5.10 | Docs | Modules | Bugs

Alfred implement SEO URLs in newbb 4.3
you can test it.
demo his website:http://www.simple-xoops.de/forum/
download svn:
http://xoops.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/xoops/XoopsModules/newbb/branches/alfred/newbb/

Also as mamba said you should change the htaccess file inside newbb folder to what you want.

there is a xoRewriteURL hack that I've been using forever with all xoops versions since xoops 2.2. you can go from site.com/modules/newbb/ to site.com/forums/, from site.com/modules/catads to site.com/ads and so on, it works with any module

Yes, xoRewriteModule hack is one of the best, lets you remove /modules/ part of the URL as well as rename modules. Link to the forum post about it https://xoops.org/modules/newbb/viewtopic.php?start=0&topic_id=68613&viewmode=flat&order=ASC&type=&mode=0

Hi friends,
Many thanks for your help! I´ll try these solutions: xoRewriteModule hack + htaccess changes.
I think it would be (for the future, of course) a good addon on Xoops to allow users to choose between several permanent links from Control Panel, aka wordpress. What do you think, is possible?
