I can't help you with rewrites for IIS (Google SEO requires Apache), but you can try the dynamic URL mode that doesn't require rewrites, see the documentation for details.

I've just upgraded to 1.6.1 by installing PluginLibrary 4, uploading Google SEO 1.6.1 files and deactivating and activating it again but I'm having the following problem:
* Your notice still tells me to add:
# Some hosts require RewriteBase to make RewriteRules work.
RewriteBase /

# Google SEO Sitemap:
RewriteRule ^sitemap\-([^./]+)\.xml$ misc.php?google_seo_sitemap=$1 [L,QSA,NC]

# Google SEO URL Forums:
RewriteRule ^Forum\-([^./]+)$ forumdisplay.php?google_seo_forum=$1 [L,QSA,NC]

# Google SEO URL Threads:
RewriteRule ^Thread\-([^./]+)$ showthread.php?google_seo_thread=$1 [L,QSA,NC]

# Google SEO URL Announcements:
RewriteRule ^Announcement\-([^./]+)$ announcements.php?google_seo_announcement=$1 [L,QSA,NC]

# Google SEO URL Users:
RewriteRule ^User\-([^./]+)$ member.php?action=profile&google_seo_user=$1 [L,QSA,NC]

# Google SEO URL Calendars:

# Google SEO URL Events:
RewriteRule ^Event\-([^./]+)$ calendar.php?action=event&google_seo_event=$1 [L,QSA,NC]

To my .htaccess file but the lines are there.
You can confirm that by going here:

Are they exactly the same? Do they have \ before -? It doesn't make any difference, I'm using preg_quote() to quote the scheme regular expression, and some PHP versions do quote -, while others don't. You can ignore any and all warnings as long as everything works the way you want to.

Today I noticed one thing. I dont know if my configuration wrong or it is some bug.

I am adding an attachment. The thing is that links somehow is different when i am looking in forum and when in thread.

RE: Google SEO 1.6.1 - frostschutz - 08-26-2011

Most likely a bug. One of the things I don't notice as I don't use this dropdown pagination thing (in fact I even disabled it entirely). I'll have a look at it when I find the time.

Your donation is highly appreciated. Smile Thank you.

RE: Google SEO 1.6.1 - suresh - 08-28-2011

can you tell how to enable tags for every thread ?
My forum is indexing wrong way.

RE: Google SEO 1.6.1 - blogantinom - 08-29-2011

Just updated, running great, thanks!

But on the plugins page it still shows:

Quote:URL is passive. Apply changes to core files to activate.
Redirect is enabled and URL is passive. Redirecting SEO URLs back to MyBB's default URLs.

What is this "passive" referring to?
I`m a bit cautious about the " Apply changes to core files." as it isn't clear which files it will change. I have already replaced the function.php with the one provided on this post, so I'm afraid to run this and get the function.php messed up. What are the other "core files"?

On a side note, I was in doubt how to proceed with the update of both mybb to 1.6.4 and Google SEO to 1.6.1, as it wasn't very clear at the instructions.

Here are the steps I followed:
- Rename settings.php to settings.php.original on the 1.6.4 files package (which you might have at your computer)
- Replace to original inc/functions.php for 1.6.2
- Deactivated Google SEO Plugin
- Upload all 1.6.4 on top of 1.6.2
- install at http://[DOMAIN]/install/
- copy google SEO 1.6.1 to mybb/inc
- Enable plugin: Admin CP -> Configuration page.
- Enable and configure each google seo settings
- Copy functions-googleseo-1.6.4.php on top of the inc/functions.php
- Change template to use the right js version (on header template)

That was enough to get everything working.
