Re: [RFC] Human Readable URLs

If you're going to use made up terms, please could you explain them (inline or footnote) when you use them? I've completey forgotten what SERPO is and don't have time to read back through your posts. Sorry, I thought that I'd posted it in this topic, but it was actually in the SEO - Obsolete? topic...

Re: [RFC] Show locked topics below open topics option

At the moment if you lock a topic it stays where it is in the forumlist order. However quite often this is accompanied by a reply; meaning you get locked topics pushed to the top of forumlist. This would be a per-forum option and would display the locked topics after the unlocked topics. So in the ...

Re: [RFC] Avoiding Confusion in Who Is Online

IMO this guest information is rather useless. Should just get rid of it. Unless you're using "guest" in the sense of "any visitor", this isn't just about guests. Registered users could be trying to access the ACP, for example. As for finding the location information useless, I think that it's inter...

That's another benefit of my proposal -- it doesn't require mod_rewrite . This is not a benefit as to my knowledge every web server currently in existence that is of any significance supports some form of routing arbitrary uri paths to php scripts.

[RFC] Avoiding Confusion in Who Is Online

Who Is Online sometimes confuses users by showing that guests (and sometimes other users) are doing things that they shouldn't be able to ( example ). This has led to phpBB adding an According to viewonline a user is doing/reading something they should not be able to! FAQ , but people still ask abo...

Re: [RFC] Human Readable URLs

...Yes, but it looks silly 0_o Well, less silly than f=214&t=12575 . Adding topic title slug into URL will make decision wether visit page or not much easier. You look at url, and (asuming title makes sense) you know if it is worth visiting... Actually, I think f=108&p=240969 looks much better than...

Re: [RFC] Human Readable URLs

On the generating side the code has to know whether to generate seo urls or not. A safe solution is to have a toggle in config.php that people can change when they e.g. move servers. The problem here is that there is no way back. Once you have mod_rewrite, you will always need it, because "good URL...
