HOW GOOD DOES THIS HACK WORK??? >>> Over 29,000 pages spidered since January 1st!!!!!!! Visit http://www3.google.com/search?hl=en&...e+SkuZZy+Xenon to see all the pages this script has helped get spidered into google!

Sub-Forums have been added!

Final Version Released - February 10th

I added sub-forums in this final version, one of the most requested features to be added... but, sad to say... this will be the final version. I never got a chance to add some of the cool features I said, but I feel this archive has served it's purpose and hopefully will continue to do so for all the die hard users who stick with vb 2.2.9. I decided to make this the final version because vb3 is coming out soon and I think this archive is the best archive currently out. Sure, there are more flashy ones, but this one gets the job done and gets results. Hopefully this hack will live on for a while.
Edit by Xenon: Whenever there is a problem, i'll take a look at it, and perhaps add a feature or two

About this hack

This hack will help get all your threads listed in google and other search engines and get your threads easily spidered! It works by creating an archive and turning all your posts into .html format. It doesn't actually create the .html files though, but google thinks they are real! It uses mod_Rewrite. If you don't have mod_Rewrite, you can't use the scripts (sorry).

What does it do?

The purpose of this hack are to get your keywords from your forums listed in google and get people visiting them! Since these are all pure text and don't use tables or excess font tags, they are very friendly on bandwidth! This will display all your files in a nice text format that google will absolutely love! Visit the online demo below to see it in action!

Requirements

Apache
vBulletin 2.x
mod_mime installed
.htaccess
5 minutes of your time...


Known Problems/Confusion

Mod_mime - You will NEED mod_mime to run these scripts. Mod_mime is a free module which enables a directive called "ForceType". This allows you to use the .htaccess file included to force your files into php mode, which allows simple URL's, without .php in them. If you can see the front page of your archive, but get an error page when you click on any links then this is your problem. To fix it, you will need to install mod_mime, or ask your host to do it. It's a FREE module. For more information, visit http://httpd.apache.org/docs/mod/mod_mime.html

Private forums - Private forums are NOT shown and they will NOT be spidered. Some people say the private forums show up, that is because you are logged in as the admin and the archive uses permissions. So anyone who has permission to view the private forums on your forums, will beable to view them on the archives also. But if you log out of your account OR log into an account that doesn't have access to them, then you won't beable to view them

Credits

Biggest credit goes to Xenon who originally coded the scripts. He is the man! Also thanks to everyone who tested it out for me and kept bugging me about releasing it (when I was too lazy to).

Agreement

By using these scripts & installing them, you agree to leave the small (virtually unnoticable) copyright text and links at the bottom of all pages. You also agree to leave jelsoft's copyright there as well. You can modify the scripts much as you want, but this portion must remain intact (links must stay) and visible. This is all we ask

Download Final

To install, just download the file below and open the "_readme.txt" file. All is explained there. Installation should only take a couple of minutes. If you have problems with this script, post them in this thread and I will try and get around to answering them.

What would be the best solution for people who do not have mod_rewriting capabilities, like ensim users, and other users.

I know some people here do not have the luxury of mod_rewriting like me and Chris, and I think Teck too.

I have done something similar, but I am not satisified by the method I used, I am looking for a more organized way. I am open to your or anyone elses suggestions.

http://www.noxmedia.net/archive
(I have done massive editing to achieve the effect, and I added some extra stuff to mimic vB3 archive, but I am willing to give this ALL UP, for something that will do the same thing as mod rewrite)

I personally detest ensim, but I am stuck on it for awhile, and ensim does not allow mod_rewriting, there are always errors, like forbidden, and internal server errors. I either have to bug my host to add it, and even then its a pain.

Great job, and please suggest sume stuff

I will probably release a version that doesn't require mod_rewrite. I wouldn't beable to add the .html extensions to the pages though. However, it would be possible to remove the .php from the file names without using mod_rewrite (using .htaccess instead). So the URL's would look like http://www.battleforums.com/archive/topic/400 instead of http://www.battleforums.com/archive/topic/400.html ... not alot of difference, but google DOES like .html better I think. They suspicious when a site has thousands of different directories

most hosts nowadays will load up any module/plugin/etc.. that you want, not all do, but the majority will do it at the request of the customer. unless you're on some $2.95 plan then they might not. If you pay good money for hosting then either make them do it or threaten that you will get a host that will

ask and see, if they say no then get a host that will. my host will install a virus if i tell them to,

The way I have done it is, through htaccess, and htaccess only, and I was able to also acheive the .html effect, maybe if you are going to release one that uses a different method (and i think I know which) maybe we can work together to do that part.

Doesn't google already crawl query files unless you send it into a loop?

I'll be releasing a version TODAY that doesn't require mod_rewrite and will have all the same features. It will be version 2.0!

It does however require .htaccess. But....... good news. Tommorow, I will be releasing a version that doesn't require mod_rewrite OR .htaccess

The downside to that version will be that URL.s will look like http://www.whatever.com/archive/topic.php/400.html instead of just "topic/400.html". But it still works
