Re: Google Bots not Working Correctly?

Google seems to be storing urls with sids still.. and I see a TON that are:

"viewforum.php?f=#&mark=topics"

Which will just mark the topics read if you click it.

Re: PhpBB 3 portals

Well.

Not exactly.. all the files still use $phpbb_root_path to generate the links to places in the templates. Perhaps they can all be changed to $script_path? As it is the more logical choice as long as its there now.

Re: PhpBB 3 portals

Looks like $script_path has been re-introduced. So you could now do this for the top apparently. <?php define('IN_PHPBB', true); define('IN_SITE', true); $root_path = '/home/blah/blah/htdocs'; //change to '.' if you want. $script_path = '/forums/'; $phpbb_root_path = $root_path.$script_path'; $phpEx...

Re: BOT Style

I have a bot style applied for my site (on the actual site, not the forums yet) using phpBBv3. It basically strips down all the graphics and tables, and makes it most information possible, with as little to get in the way.. so far I have noticed good results with Google.. it has thousands of my page...

Re: spamming on members list

My 2.x board has this problem too. I resorted to simply running a script now and then that deletes any member with fewer than 10 posts and a URL in their profile (they're warned about this in the T&C acceptance page). Works well enough. I tend to go through an delete people with webpages and zero p...
