The above will produce an error, because the line above the line you are replacing does not have a semi-colon.

Can you explain? I just checked and it does have a semi-colon. And I know it works because I've been using the code for weeks.

Well here another bad news..
i have tried to implement ur whole mod and got errors.. then all was messed..
I tried fresh again same errors with some new one..
the most occuring was about something T_VARIABLE.

After hours of checking I got still errors.. So i had restored my earlier sessions.php and index.php and search.php

Also u forgot to mention in include file about viewtopic.php

Lastly .. Please check at whole..

Also try to divide it in parts... ie. only use those modification together which are required togethor.. If u split them apart, it will easy to implement and to understand also... and also to check it easily...

Also i m Jaffery on phpBB.com so i have all types of search mod with me.. I used mod with my collection which u r using for sessions.php and now i m going fine..

Well ur mode of sessions.php will not work if u allow guest posting.. Please mention that in ur mod...

It took me 3 hrs. to work , rework , check , recheck and at the end nothing major changed.. u can see that at my forums...

i think u got wht i am saying...

Nice catch.

In viewtopic.php

Find

Code:$page_title = $lang['View_topic'] .' - ' . $topic_title;


replace with:

Code:$page_title = $topic_title;


I will amke this update and a few others to the mod shortly.

What lines caused errors for you? I suspect the lines I said to comment out are on doubled lines for you, I will change the way they are commented out in the mod in a second.

Ok, I have updated the mod. I think the errors you guys had was because I commented out a line and in your code it was running into two lines and only the first was commented out.

I ahve also made a few minor updates.

I already edited everything with the previous version of your mod, earlier today. I made the site title change that you mentioed above.

Is there anything esle that was new?

Thanks.

Just one other change.

Code:#
#-----[ OPEN ]------------------------------------------
#

viewforum.php

#
#-----[ FIND ]------------------------------------------
#

$page_title = $lang['View_forum'] . ' - ' . $forum_row['forum_name'];

#
#-----[ REPLACE WITH ]------------------------------------
#

$page_title = $forum_row['forum_name'];


I have many other changes that will soon be included, in the future I will post the changes here so that anyone who has already modded can keep up.

Cavern..

I have now included all the mod suggested by u!! but the forum index title is only index.. can we have that as "XXXXXXX, XXXX index" ie. Like for mine. "LinuxSolved.com index"
I think we can edit some think in index.php so that.. it's title become.. Title of site.. so should find that myself or u already know.. ??

Also can u give a look to my site.. i think something is missing !!..

Nice work .. u r sharing ur experience with us..

Open lang_main.php

FIND

Code:$lang['Index'] = 'Index';


Replace with

Code:$lang['Index'] = 'YOUR SITE NAME';

Hi all.
Ive changed some of the code of that mod so now all that links are invisible ONLY for guests but if u register it comes back lika a normal phpbb!
Look:
Edit (Moderator): Link removed
and then if u register ull see the situation comes back to normal ( that i think is better )
If u want i can post my index.php viewforum.php ecc.
Just tell me.

Which part? Most can be seen on the pages themselves, links are removed or altered etc.

The crucial sessions part can be checked by logging out (make sure you are completely logged out and there are no cookies).

Then type the url for your forum into your browser, click on a forum and see if any SIDs are added.

As long as you don't get an SID as a guest all spiders won't either.

You mean the topics can't be read by guests? Yes, that is a problem. It means it's inaccessible to search engines and you'll get little to no search engine traffic.

Hello

I got some text of your first post

"I get so many questions about phpBB search engine optimization that"

and I searched it on google.

http://www.google.com/search?num=100&hl=en&lr=&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8&newwindow=1&safe=off&q=I+get+so+many+questions+about+phpBB+search+engine+optimization+that

If you make the google search above you will find a similar post you did on phpbb , but you will not find the post on this forum .

Perhaps because didn't you submit able2know on google recently ?
Or because phpbb is using a better google optimization ?


If possible I wish to know your idea/opinion about
http://www2.epicdb.com:81/250products/trafficstuffle/
and if your opinion is good how to use it with phpbb.
Could be useful for new forums with few pages ?


Thank you for your interesting work !
Graziano, Rome,Italy

It could be because phpbb's using AdSense, which sends a spider out every time a user visits the page. Google claims that it's a separate craql but my own SEO research has led me to believe that AdSense publishers are indexed more rapidly in the search engine as well. But I'm starting to doubt it, Google recently has changed the way they spider and are updating on a much shorter schedule than in the past.

Google is doing the google dance, and it's a big dance right now and A2K results are coming in and out.

But it's important to note that you won't find all of phpbb's topics indexed and you won't find every single topic here indexed in Google.

But the limitations for how much Google will index have to do with limitations on Google's end. Page rank is one factor they use for this.

To search for topics from this forum that are indexed in Google use this search query
