Module: Search Engine Friendly URL's
December 05, 2008 07:16AM
I excluded the addons prefix from the rewrite because of issues with modules like embedded_images. I did this as a quickfix because I'm still looking how I can fix this nicely.

This modules creates search engine friendly urls for almost (except search) every url in phorum. The subject of messages are in all the message links. The forum name and the username replacements are temporarily removed because of unfound url creations.

This module requires Apache rewrite rules. Apache is a widely used
web server software package. If your webserver is not an Apache server,
then you will not be able to use this module. If you are unsure, then
check with your hosting provider.

To setup the rewrite rules, create or update the file ".htaccess" inside
your Phorum installation directory (mind the starting dot).
The rewrite rules that have to be added to this file are:

 RewriteEngine On

 RewriteRule ^([0-9]*)/([0-9]*)/([0-9]*)/([0-9a-zA-Z\-_=]*)/(.*)$ read.php?$1,$2,$3,$4
 RewriteRule ^([0-9]*)/([0-9]*)/([0-9]*)/(.*)$ read.php?$1,$2,$3
 RewriteRule ^([0-9]*)/([0-9]*)/([0-9a-zA-Z\-_=]*)/(.*)$ read.php?$1,$2,$3
 RewriteRule ^([0-9]*)/([0-9]*)/(.*)$ read.php?$1,$2
 RewriteRule ^([0-9]*)/([0-9]*)$ read.php?$1,$2
 RewriteRule ^([a-z]*)/([0-9]*)/([0-9a-zA-Z=_\-]*)/([0-9a-zA-Z=_\-]*)/([0-9a-zA-Z=_\-]*)$ $1.php?$2,$3,$4,$5
 RewriteRule ^([a-z]*)/([0-9]*)/([0-9a-zA-Z=_\-]*)/([0-9a-zA-Z=_\-]*)$ $1.php?$2,$3,$4
 RewriteRule ^([a-z]*)/([0-9]*)/([0-9a-zA-Z=_\-/:\.?]*)$ $1.php?$2,$3
 RewriteRule ^([a-z]*)/([0-9]*)$ $1.php?$2
 RewriteRule ^([a-z]+)$ $1.php

Hmm, I was about to thank you for this module as many have requested it, but then I noticed you simply teased us with the possibility of a great module and didn't upload the actual files ;-P

I tried your module but it messed up my template. I sent a screenshot.

And there's a problem with some links. The link for an user profile is like this: []%

I fixed the issues you stated in 1.0.2. The forum name and username are temporarily stripped 'cause i need to look for more places these are generated. The bug that your images didn't load came from the fact that the css linked were also translated to css/0/css structures, and the browser interpreted that as a directory. That is fixed now...

I'm afraid image links are still incorrect. Like this:
Thanks for the effort.

That's strange, are you sure you updated the code with the new version? It should exclude all css url transformations.

damn, I feel so stupid. I re-downloaded and then re-uploaded the old version. =P Maybe you should delete the old version.

Anyway, there are still some problems. Some images still won't show because their links are like this:
<img src=templates/{TEMPLATE}/x.gif>

These are shown when I'm in But they won't in (or read, list instead of index). Any idea how to fix that?

relative links won't work with SEF-urls as the browser thinks these are directories.
you will have to change those images to full urls (http:// ... )

Or in this case you could put /phorum/ in front of them...
