Go to this forum on my site [url]http://www.highaltitudeimports.com/f75-trade-zone.html[/url]

Click on any thread that has a : in the title like FS: Si Rims

As of page 3 there was a section added to the hack to have keyword rich url's for the threadbit. Works great, but what rewrite rule do we insert to convert the :'s into spaces or something else

I found an error with the hack. If someone uses a : in their thread title it hoses the hack. The browser thinks is is a protocol that they are defining like http or ftp.

You either did something wrong witha code replacement, or you have the wrong lines in your .htaccess :).

On a side note, has anyone else had problems with the links on the new posts screen pointing to the wrong forum. not the posts themselves that come up in the search, but the links to the forum they were posted in. On 3 of my sites they all point to a single forum rather than the correct forum.

Thank you for the quick reply. I see your point about teh multiple pages and agree with you there. I hadn't really thought about it before.

I hadn't thought about using the js syndication for the side bar. I was just using a module for mine from vbadvanced which is probably whi I thought you were doing the same.

Let me know if you do decide to release your modified link page. I'd be interested :).

The page navigation would take a new rewrite rule it looks like. I'll mess with it and see if I can come up with one that works.

This is probably one of the best hacks I have ever applied to my board. I have now done pretty much everything in this thread and it works perfectly. (hope none of my competators ever find this thread ;) )

I do have a couple questions however. First is the navigation for the threads that span multiple pages. Actually you know what? I'm going to go look at those navigation templates. It is probably a simple change that would fix that.

On to my next two questions. I know this site used vbadvanced cmps which is what I use on a couple sites. What modifications were necessary to get the friendly url's in the revent topics box on the right column of the forums?

Also I noticed this site uses the link system from vbulletin.org for its weblinks. Would you also share the modifications you made there?

Thanks again everyone who has shared in this hack :)

I was noticing your use of adsense ads in the showthread template. That has to be one of the best locations I have seen. Where and how did you place it so it only shows up once after the first post? I would love to use this if you don't mind sharing.
