[release] Make your forums Googlebot-friendly
Mod Version: 1.00, by filburt1 (Member) filburt1 is offline
Developer Last Online: May 2007 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

This modification is in the archives.
vB Version: Rating: (0 vote - 0 average) Installs: 1
Released: 10 Nov 2002 Last Update: Never Downloads: 3
Not Supported  

Author: filburt1
Description: This lets Googlebot crawl your forums and threads; GB will only crawl threads in the first page of thread listings however. This requires Apache with .htaccess support of mod_rewrite; if you don't know what any of those are, you might have problems with this mod.
Demo: http://www.webdesignforums.net/
Screenshot: n/a

I got the idea from a hack at vB.org, and posted at vB.com only to have it sink into oblivion. So I posted it here.

Apply these template modifications to your default style set. You can apply it to more, but if you don't do at least the default set the modifications will be useless. In addition WOL will show "Unknown Location: [link]" but the actual links it references will still work.

Yes and what's more it doesn't work because it still includes the sessionhash, so to the trash this shall go unless somebody can have the time to remove the shash from the rewritten URLs...

isn't this the same one that you use though, you managed to get your threads on google, or is that one unreleased, if so, is there any other places to get one
