Re: Olympus Progress Report

IMHO a stable phpBB Olympus is far, far away. During the last weeks, there only were few CVS checkins. An active project looks different. phpBB Olympus itself is a good project and the code looks promising, but my confidence in the developers is lost. Bad information strategy, bad schedule, bad answ...

Sorry, I meant phpBB Olympus (CVS HEAD) - don't know why I said Oxygen. I'm still not used to the new naming scheme.

Re: Olympus search engine friendly?

What is this phpBB Oxygen and why are you pushing it frequently on our site? We've no problem at all with people forking or otherwise adapting phpBB ... but we do get annoyed at people using our site to publicise such versions. Sorry, I meant phpBB Olympus (CVS HEAD) - don't know why I said Oxygen....

Re: Olympus search engine friendly?

Will it have an "archive" like vBulletin or IPB? No, had to be scraped for time reasons for this release, but is a strong possibility for 3.2. This "archive" of vBulletin is IMHO just a poor way to make the search engines crawl the whole site. phpBB Oxygen CVS has a fine way to deal with bots - you...

Re: SEO - missing append_sid() functionality

I now solved the problem of those hardcoded URLs by using a modified template class which rewrites URLs. This is quite fast when using cached templates, but requires the hardcoded URL beeing parsed prior to rewriting - a more elaborate solution would hand over the URL in a pre-parsed form, but I'll ...

Re: SEO - missing append_sid() functionality

Apache and its URL rewriting engine is by far the most popular one, but URL rewriting isn't limited to Apache. I'm sure that every major webserver could at least pass every request to a script which would parse the path-info and handle it over to the target script. BTW: Have a look at the current ph...

It's quite useless to get indexed, when your ranking is too bad to get found by the search engine users.
There's much to say about SEO and "clean" URLs (no GET parameters) are a starting point.

SEO - missing append_sid() functionality

Hi @ll, I wonder if phpBB Olympus will get a design which allows easy rewriting of URLs for SEO. At this time, I'm missing the append_sid() function (or something similar) from the phpBB 2.0 versions. In current CVS, there are plenty of hardcoded URLs looking like index.$phpEx$SID and even worse one...
