vB Easy Archive - Search Engine Spiderable Hack!
Mod Version: 1.0 Beta, by Xenon (Member) Xenon is offline
Developer Last Online: Jul 2018 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

This modification is in the archives.
vB Version: 3.5.0 Beta 1 Rating: (0 vote - 0 average) Installs: 38
Released: 20 Jun 2005 Last Update: 20 Jun 2005 Downloads: 82
Not Supported Additional Files Is in Beta Stage  

Ok, as a lot of users have installed my vB Easy Archive Hack i've decided to release a vB3.5 Version as well. Note that vB3.5 is currently in beta, and so is my hack as well!

As vB3 already comes with an build in Archive System, it's not that needed than it was in vb2, but for all of you, who have installed the vb2 version and don't want to loose their indexed Pages, this one is for you

I'm lazy and therefore will copy the Releasetext of vb2 by SkuZZy.

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_mime. If you don't have mod_mime, you will still be able to install this hack, just read the install.txt for help then.

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!

Online Demo

To view a demo of this script, visit this site:
http://www.strategy-forum.de/easy_archive/

Requirements

Apache
vBulletin 3.x
mod_mime installed (not absolutelly required, but recommended)
.htaccess
5 minutes of your time...


Known Problems/Confusion

Mod_mime - It is recommended to have mod_mime installed 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
If you want to run vb Easy Archive without mod_mie, please look into the install.txt

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

Forumlist yes, but threadlist no - http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showp...5&postcount=91

Credits
SkuZZy aka Adam J. de Jaray, who gets my Special Thanks for his modifications, releasing and of course his Support to my Script's vb2 version. Note, he does not have anything to do with the vb3 version, but without him, there wouldn't have been the vb2 version and therefore i would never have released the one for vb3

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 I ask

Download Final

To install, just download the file below and open the "install.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.

With more and more search engines able to spider dynamic pages what safeguards are in place with a hack like this to prevent duplicate content penalties?

I beg to differ. As a Guest, I am able to see all my Staff Forums. Granted, not able to see the content, but the forum name and titles.

hmm, would be very wierd, as the permission system worked in 3.0.x and i just changed the function names to work with 3.5.x, so there shouldn't be a difference normally.

but the hack is still in beta as said, i'll look at it when i have time again

As a guest I can see my staff forums as well. Also if I try to click on any forum shown I get taken to a page not found on this server error.

the server error is something different.
thats a server issue, read through the 3.0.x thread to find out what to do.

i'll take a look into the other thing.
