Problem solved...for the record (in case that other users have the same problem) dont be so hurry to read the instalation guide:

1) Modify your loadpages.php.
Set your start module's dir name at line 33.
If you don't set a start module, please set it blank like: $start_module = "";
Set the position of "loadpages.php" at line 38.

Thanks anyway!

I'm getting a 404 Page Not Found error after installing this hack on XOOPS 2.0.10. Is there something else I need to enable on the server side to get this working?

Can you take this a bit further by replacing the "." with "-" instead?

For example, I have this URL with Simplified URLs:


But would be happier with:

http://www.worldtechusa.com/tinycontent1-index-id-1.htm (not a link)

Additionally, would there be any way to change the URL on a per page basis (For tinycontent)? Like:

http://www.worldtechusa.com/medical-transcription-service.htm (not a link)

instead of:


We're paying an SEO quite a bit of money to optimize our site, and they say having your keywords in the URLs will help immensely.

Any thoughts?

Hello ,
I have a few problems since installing, I running XOOPS 2.0.92:

With the cat ads module - the email link uses a javascript popup window which displays blank.

With the pbboard module the 'show more smilies link' also uses a javascript popup which won't display, and also some images on the pbboard aren't showing - the View user's profile
( /modules/pbboard/templates/ca_aphrodite/images/
lang_english/icon_profile.gif ) and www. icons. Other images are ok.

Are there any fixes?

Me again,

I've worked out that the images not displaying are in a sub folder of the pbboard template images. If I right click/properties on images that are showing ok the paths are: xoops/modules/pbboard/templates/ca_aphrodite/images/folder.gif

the paths to images not showing are: xoops/templates/ca_aphrodite/images/lang_english/icon_pm.gif

So to make it work I created a new folder in the root directory templates/ca_aphrodite and uploaded the images to that - it works but it doesn't seem like the right way to do it.

I have installed this hack at www.jonathanspencer.net, however I have 2 problems

1. Google used up all my bandwidth next time it spideredt he site, (I have tried removing anything that might create a loop... adding mygallery and liens modules to the disallow on the robot.text)...but then inktomi did it as well.

2. My site is now incredibly slow to load a page

is the slowness down to mainfile.php can someone display the code as it ought to be in mainfile.php with the additional code for simplified urls

I have just installed the module on two of my sites and it works a treat with one exception. For some reason it doesn't rewrite when the 'content' module is set as home page.

Any advice?
