SmartSection with SEO support.

Guys,

I just completed coding the SEO feature for my favorite SmartSection module. The changes are committed on HEAD, so wait till next release. Stay tuned....

Feature preview...

Originally URLs generated from modules are something like these:

http://localhost/modules/smartsection/category.php?categoryid=3
http://localhost/modules/smartsection/item.php?itemid=1
http://localhost/modules/smartsection/print.php?itemid=2

These parameterized URL are not very effective in getting good search rank for various reasons. So I did this hack to make these URLs look like

Using mod_rewrite

http://localhost/smartsection.category.3/yahoo-mail.html
http://localhost/smartsection.item.1/ ... different-from-email.html
http://localhost/smartsection.print.2/can-i-turn-the-ads-off.html

Using PATH_INFO

http://localhost/modules/smartsection ... ategory.3/yahoo-mail.html
http://localhost/modules/smartsection ... different-from-email.html
http://localhost/modules/smartsection ... n-i-turn-the-ads-off.html

Above rewrite prints many keywords (from title) in URL itself. Google started caching each and every page when I turned on SEO. When searched for related keywords; this new URL will increase the search-rank.

Re: SmartSection with SEO support.

Next release should have it. If you want to try now, get CVS version.

Thanks.

Re: SmartSection with SEO support.

Great work sudhaker, this is a feature that has gained a lot of popularity with other OS CMS's such as Joomla with the OpenSEF component and Drupal with the Path (which is actually a part of the core) and Pathauto modules. I think what will be good for XOOPS is when 2.3 comes out were this functionality will be included in the core (similar to Drupal) so module developers don't have to code this on a per module level.
