Yes, it does work with 1.8.

RE: Google SEO 1.6.8 - babak - 07-05-2015

I found a problem with the plugin today. I have already reported it in another thread, but it is good to mention it here as this is sort of the official thread for the plugin.
In MyBB 1.8, there is a new capability that allows moderators to move posts from one thread to another. This functionality seems to be broken by the SEO plugin.

I did a bit of debugging, the problem is caused by the way moderation.php:2433 ("do_multimoveposts") tries to resolve "realurl". I don't know why the code to resolve actual thread URLs is repeated in various places inside "moderation.php". It could be refactored in a function and that function could possibly take care of SEO URLs as well.
If someone has already found a solution, please update the thread.

I have been able to find a hacky workaround to make it work. Diff is below.

However, a proper fix requires updates to both MyBB and the plugin. The problem is that "do_multimoveposts" in "moderation.php" does not have a hook for plugins. It needs a plugin hook and then the SEO plugin should register a callback at this hook. Until this is fixed, those who want to use the plugin can use the workaround below. Basically you will need to add 


after "verify_post_check..." at line 2430 of moderation.php.

How do I remove the prefix url, i.e if the forum name is general the url will be instead of you can change it in settings but what edit do you have to do in the .htaccess file

The post/thread merge/move form should work if you give it the "newreply.php?tid=123" URL (right click reply button -> copy link).

That way you can use it without patching anything.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

RE: Google SEO 1.6.8 - Eldenroot - 07-20-2015

Same issue, could you fix this please?

Thanks Frostschutz. You are right, but we have a relatively large forum with about 10 moderators who are not necessarily very tech savvy. Finding the original URLs is not very easy for them. They just want to copy the URL from the address bar. So, I had to patch moderation.php.

I have this installed on MyBB1.8(by changing compatibility) but can't seem to get the URL portion to work. For example forum 2 is rewritten as

Here is my .htaccess

# -------------------------------------------------------------------
# This file is identical to MyBB's htaccess.txt example file,
# with rewrite rules for a standard Google SEO install added.
# Before using this file please make sure to:
#   - replace /MyBB/ with your forum folder, e.g. / or /forum/
#   - replace yoursite/MyBB with your forum URL
#   - name the file '.htaccess' (starting with the dot, no .txt)
# Alternatively you can add the required rewrite rules to your
# existing .htaccess, the specific rules required will be displayed
# on the plugin status page once Google SEO URL is enabled.
