A bundle of phpBB+SEO mods (like PHPnuke and googletap)

Hi! With so many codes and versions flying around, I was wondering if anyone has posted a bundled version of phpBB and the SEO mods (session removals + mod_rewrite).. or if they would make one available in a bundle, which works for a fresh install...

For phpnuke and googletap many such files exist. What is the status on this with phpBB??

What are you talking about? The only official version has exactly what you are requesting.

You definitely do not understand what I mean then, because last I checked the official phpBB does NOT have any SEO mods installed. These have to be installed separately

If a new version has come out with this included then fantastic! Point me to this!

But that would be strange that so many people are still asking about these extra mods if the official version already has it implemented?!

No, the vanilla phpBB does not, but the only official Able2Know SEO mod does.

See here: http://www.able2know.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=15132

I guess you want it in a packaged phpbb install right? Well I know that some people are planning to use my mod in a packaged install, but I am unaware of any that have already done so.

No.

Like I said, as far as I know it has no such software has been released, you'll have to do a vanilla install and add the mod.

Vanilla means "plain" default. So vanilla phpBB is phpBB with no modifications.

Those "pre-modded" packages are actually very much frowned upon within the development community BTW.

I recommend against them simply on the basis that they are usually some of the worst bloated packages you'll see.

Anywho, I've seen people talking about adding my mod to their package installs, I don't mind if they do but none has been completed that I know of.

Ok so I will go get a fresh install over at phpbb.com I guess. Could you guide me a little with these two mods so that I get it right?

There seems to be so many versions or modifications of the mods and I kept on getting lost. Especially after reading dozens of posting threads on various forums....

Yes. In the link I gave you earlier I am providing best effort support of my code.

There is a lot of junk out there. And quite a few people are copying my code and making alterations that break it.

I can't support the coding mistakes of others but I support my own code releases here on these boards.

I just read at the end of that long thread about directory used or sub-domain. I plan to use a subdomain... is there a name you recommend me using so not to have to modify your mod too much?

I recommend using a subdomain that is a popular keyword for your site's topic.

ok I am testing at home now with Apache server before loading online... I have made all file modifications and seems to be running ok...

Where shall I place the htaccess file - in root of subdomain or root of site?

You place the htaccess code in the same folder as the files for the forum.

And if you have an existing htaccess file add the code to that file or some other configuration may be lost.

If you already have mod_rewrite turned on in that htaccess file then make sure not to turn it on twice, just add the new rules.

Lastly, the re_writing of the URLs will almost certainly not work on your local server, access it by a domain name for a real test.

Ok so I must test online. Fine.

As for the htaccess file I currently have it is in my root. I should make a new one (separate) in my subdomain for the forum.

Correct?

Or add the lines you gave me to the existing file in the root?
