Ted didnt post any code specific to the navbit did he?
Some of this navbit stuff i already had done myself as i did some previous hacks to remove sid from the url's and some other things to make my forum more google friendly.

no Ted didnt post it, but it definately needs to be, because it follows csgal's way, so it just breaks and 404's.

edit: i almost have the code modified correctly that goes into showthread.php and displayforum.php...

foreach ($parentlist AS $forumID)
{
  $forumTitle = $forumcache["$forumID"]['title'];
  $navbits["f$forumID-$forumTitle.html"] = $forumTitle; // edited by dani
}

Only thing that it doesnt do is put the Forum Title like Ted's does (lowercase hyphenated). I dont know PHP, just general coding knowledge, so kind of struggling here :X

Example of the URL it is doing now: http://www.thepcforum.com/forum/f6-Processors%20(CPU).html

It looks like you missed the party by keith... $thread = ereg_replace("[/?!.$%£()~*@]+", "", $thread); (I believe thats on page 5 of the thread)

Wow... this is really nice, but I was getting a little confuse as to what should be done. Really new to doing mods to my board and don't want to mess things up. I don't have any options for my members to change the styles, so where should I start... it looks as though many things have changed and I don't want to put some thing in only to find (hopfully) that addition was incorrect.

Has any one have all the steps in the correct order so it's not really confusing?

There are two methods. If you want to go with my method, you need only to follow the directions exactly as in post #1 and later in post #24. If you want to follow Ted's method, first apply my original hack, and then follow the alterations in post #41. I'm pretty sure that's it.

Ted, for future reference, the number of posts which appear per page is a value that can be set on a per user basis. Therefore, page 5 isn't the same page 5 for everyone. For future reference, please identify posts by their post # (in the top right corner of each post). Thanks :)

Thank you, that clears it up:)
OH... how can I get my board to use the same "Quote" (how it looks)

Sorry for the repost, but when you mean 'orginal' I only need to do post #1 correct... I plan on using Ted's method.

So I would need to do post #1 then #41... correct?

To use Ted's method, first implement my hacks in post #1 and post #24. And then Ted's alterations in post #41.

I have a Q about .htaccess

It has to do with the Rewrite Rule:

RewriteRule ^forum-one.html$ forumdisplay.php?f=1 [L]
RewriteRule ^forum-two.html$ forumdisplay.php?f=2 [L]
RewriteRule ^forum-three.html$ forumdisplay.php?f=3 [L]

For my board I have a forum called 4XTraders.com Forex Announcements and Discussions and its URL is

http://www.4xtraders.com/forum/4xtraders.com-forex-announcements-and-discussions.html

Now in my .htaccess file would I write it as

-----Edit------
Weird... I didn't look at my url for my post but it looks like it had already changed my urls without having to write the rule for this forum.... so I still need to do this?

RewriteRule ^4XTraders_Forex_Announcements_Discussions.html$ forumdisplay.php?f=1 [L]

0

hehe I guess so as it does create the link.... the link didn't go any where.... got an error

0

Sorry for so many post... but I seem to be having a prob with my links to my sub-forums. I am not sure if I did some thing wrong or missed a step.

On my boards, you can see the sub-forum with it's link. Now the prob is that it is a broken link

http://www.4xtraders.com/forum/.html

Which leads to no where land.... Any ideas on how to correct this or tell me what I did wrong?

It looks like you missed the party by keith... $thread = ereg_replace("[/?!.$%£()~*@]+", "", $thread); (I believe thats on page 5 of the thread)

Ted, that still didn't fix the problem. You need to modifiy this code to work with your method, which resides in showthread.php and forumdisplay.php:

foreach ($parentlist AS $forumID)   
{
$forumTitle = $forumcache["$forumID"]['title'];
$navbits["forum$forumID.html"] = $forumTitle; // edited by dani
}

here is a link to my forums so you can see what is wrong. look at the navigation part ("The PC Forum - PC Troubleshooting, Help, and Discussion > Hardware > Motherboards"):

http://www.thepcforum.com/forum/t4-dfi-lanparty-nfii-ultra400-revisions-a&b.html

0

For people having my problem, I have fixed it. People using Ted's method, go into showthread.php and forumdisplay.php and search for "dani". edit your code to look like this below:

foreach ($parentlist AS $forumID)   
{
$forumTitle = $forumcache["$forumID"]['title'];
$forumURL = strtolower(str_replace(" ", "-",str_replace("/", "-", $forumTitle)));     
$navbits["f$forumID-$forumURL.html"] = $forumTitle; // edited by dani
}

navigation links should now work nicely :)

Great forum guys, seo guy just told me about and the rewrite hack so i started following the steps.

It's my first time using this forum so I'm gonna come out as a dummy here :).

Anyway here's my question.

At the bottom of Step 2 of the original #1 post it says:

All need to be replaced with the following:

PHP Code:
<a href="$forum[url].html">

What exactly do you mean here? replace what with the following?

I searched all 7 pages to find out if anyone asked the same question but i wan't able to find it... I'm guessing that there is something wrong with me here.

Don't even worry about it.... did you see that idiot that kept posting and post asking questions while not following ALL of the steps first....WAIT that was me!! :)

It took me a couple read thrus to understand it. What you need to do is open each one from FORUMHOME templates. ie.. forumhome_forumbit_level1_nopost, forumhome_forumbit_level1_post, forumhome_forumbit_level2_nopost, forumhome_forumbit_level2_post, forumhome_subforumbit_nopost, forumhome_subforumbit_post

Each one of them has the same code, search for

<a href="forumdisplay.php?$session[sessionurl]f=$forum[forumid]">

and then replace it with

<a href="$forum[url].html">

I am thinking that is was just an easier way for her to post it is all

Hope that helps

Has anyone noticed that the nav bar links kind of give us duplicate content pages?

Here is an example:

http://www.agentserver.net/forum/agentserver.html

We have this url repeated with:

http://www.agentserver.net/forum/forum1.html

This happens when you view a thread or a sub forum, the navbar will display the forum url names as forum[number].

As an example you can view:
http://www.agentserver.net/forum/how-do-i-questions.html

And you will notice that the AgentServer title is pointing to the page http://www.agentserver.net/forum/forum1.html

Hey there Cyber-SEO. Glad you got it worked out. The navbar problem has already been explained in my original post. The problem is that the way that vBulletin calculates subforums, a forum ID # is required to be within the loop, in order for vBulletin to figure out the parent forums of a subforum and correctly make the navbit. For that reason, your options are to have forum1.html or to have f1-forumname.html like Ted S has done it. It's logically impossible to have forumname.html only :(

cscgal>

Thanks for your quick reply. I have actually found a fix for our problem.

Here is the code:

$adotempnarvurl = strtolower(
     str_replace(" ", "-",
     str_replace("/", "-", $forumTitle)
     )
    );
$navbits["$adotempnarvurl.html"] = $forumTitle; // edited by dani

Here is a good example of the code above in action:
http://www.agentserver.net/forum/thread1.html


To explain the code fix to everyone else:
Within Steph Eight of the original #1 Post. Instead of doing this:

foreach ($parentlist AS $forumID)
{
$forumTitle = $forumcache["$forumID"]['title'];
$navbits["forum$forumID.html"] = $forumTitle; // edited by dani
}

we can do something like this

foreach ($parentlist AS $forumID)
{
$forumTitle = $forumcache["$forumID"]['title'];
$adotempnarvurl = strtolower(
     str_replace(" ", "-",
     str_replace("/", "-", $forumTitle)
     )
    );
$navbits["$adotempnarvurl.html"] = $forumTitle; // edited by dani
}

Cyber-SEO, I just have to say I am completely baffled right now. I have attempted something very similar to what you suggested months ago and was not able to get it to work. The navbits refused to follow the forum hierarchy, and just automatically put every thread directly under a top-level forum, completely ignoring all of the subforums. Still not exactly sure why it works for you but didn't for me, but thanks a billion!

0

Just glas I was able to help.

I think you did the same thing i tried doing at first which was to incorporate the replacment of the title right into the navbits. When I did that it did exactly what you were reffering to above.

Double check the forumlist PHP file you edited in the /includes folder.

Can someone help me solve a few parse errors. I was fairlr careful to make sure I did everything correct.

When I click on a thread it works fine.
When I click on a forum it works fine.

When I click on "Main Category" I get the following error:
Parse error: parse error, unexpected T_ENCAPSED_AND_WHITESPACE, expecting T_STRING or T_VARIABLE or T_NUM_STRING in /home/myphotos/public_html/forum/includes/functions_forumlist.php(441) : eval()'d code on line 11

And when I goto my forums homepage I get the following error:
Parse error: parse error, unexpected T_ENCAPSED_AND_WHITESPACE, expecting T_STRING or T_VARIABLE or T_NUM_STRING in /home/myphotos/public_html/forum/includes/functions_forumlist.php(441) : eval()'d code on line 5


I edited all files in notepad not dreamweaver.

If anyone could help me that would be great.

Could someone double check this to make sure that I did this correct. I have messed with it soo many times.... I am not sure every thing is in the right place now.

Wow: I have linked to this thread from my vb related forum signatures but I have now implelemtned it on mobileforces.org:

One extra step I have gone to is to add the onepost[postid].html rewrite pointing to showpost.php from the postbit template ...

I've found that it falls down rendering the URI's to each forum correctly on forumhome - I'll be looking into why later on...

A couple of other places where it will need re-working as well is in the hardcoded bbcodes [thread] and [post]... an exercise for the reader ;)

Massive work and well worth it - thanks again Dani!

[edit]

Addendum: the error I found was not in the eidts: it's complicated by the Forums in columns on forumhome: the template has been edited, but the $forum variable is not generated in the running of this hack...

I'll look into it further and return the results of my research here :)

[edit]

Ok - found it :)

Turns out Xenon constructed a second function to create the columnbit - so you need to add the

// added by dani
$forum['url'] = strtolower(str_replace(" ", "-",str_replace("/", "-", $forum['title'])));
// added by dani

in TWO places: just search for the light-bulb comment twice :)

Demo: http://www.mobileforces.org/forums/

Sorry about the triple-post: Dani, if you could please please merge :cool:

No Trader. That's not correct. Notice that you have the line $forum= twice. Once where it belongs, and then a second time a few lines underneath that. Get rid of the second occurrence.

Could someone double check this to make sure that I did this correct. I have messed with it soo many times.... I am not sure every thing is in the right place now.

This is my forum/includes/functions_forumlist.php

OK... I am still having problems with my Sub-Forum (FXME) at www.4xtraders.com/forum working. Below is what I have for my forumhome_subforumbit_nopost and forumhome_subforumbit_post with the changes.

forumhome_subforumbit_nopost

<img class="inlineimg" src="$stylevar[imgdir_statusicon]/subforum_$forum[statusicon].gif" alt="" /> <a href="$forum[url].html">$forum[title]</a>

forumhome_subforumbit_post

<img class="inlineimg" src="$stylevar[imgdir_statusicon]/subforum_$forum[statusicon].gif" alt="" /> <a href="$forum[url].html">$forum[title]</a>

This is what I have in my .htaccess file. And I have doubled checked with my forum manager for the correct forum ID for FXME. (should be be something different SINCE it is a SUB-FORUM?)

RewriteRule ^FXME.html$ forumdisplay.php?f=43 [L]

With all of the changes and if I am to hover over my FXME forum I get this:
forum/.html
which leads me to a (403) You are not authorized to view this page

Now if I revert my forumhome_subforumbit_post and hover I get this /forumdisplay.php?f=43 and it works just fine, but it isn't what the forum is called.

Any one have any suggestions?
Thanks in advance
Coll
