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

1/

Please read the readme.txt file included in the zip for details on how to install this modification.

Very cool! It conflicts with the 'Forum Images on Forumhome' that I have integrated with my Steel series tho.

'/images/forumhome/$forum[forumid].gif' gets .html bunged in there before the .gif.

Yes, I believe this, too but well I just followed the instructions and uploaded the files.

The .htaccess includes the following informations:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule ^f([0-9]+)-([A-Za-z0-9\-]+)\.html$ forumdisplay.php?f=$1 [L]
RewriteRule ^t([0-9]+)(((-p)([0-9]+))?)([A-Za-z0-9\-]+)\.html$ showthread.php?t=$1&page=$5&pp=10 [L]
Once time I uploaded this file I am getting the error message.

Why is this in code mods if it is a plugin?

I use a links category where forums are actually forum links, which is a feature from vbulletin by default.

So titles are for example http://www.vBulletin.com/

which results in invalid page .html files.

It seems to keep jumping between plugins and code mods. This is a plugin and should be in the plugin forum.

According to the rules by the staff it requires a file upload, therefor is a code mod. I disagree though

So do I. Following that logic, if Jelsoft does make a CMS, it would be classified as a code mod even though it would use the plugin system and not modify any code. (This post ignores the fact that an official Jelsoft addon wouldn't be released at vBulletin.org, of course, but it's just an example.)

Note to vB.org staff: It doesn't modify code, therefore it is not a code modification. Please, can we get some logic in this?

I think we need a new category: Jumpin
