Should work without issue, if you change ALL URL schemes to postfix style, since postfix style is incompatible with prefix style. Alternatively, you'd have to use .f or something for the postfix (or some other punctuation character which can not appear in the prefix URLs).

That's not so, but if you had that setting on and URLs in this style were created, those URLs will not be updated until the item is accessed again.

For plain postfix style URLs, the rules provided by Google SEO itself (on the plugins page) should work fine. Again except for compatibility issues with prefix URLs. You can't have both at the same time (Forum-Thread could either be a Forum named Thread, or a Thread named Forum, impossible to tell if you use prefix for one and postfix for the other).

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

Not sure where you got [^-f/] from, but that's definitely not what you want. Stick to the default.

Quote:My entry for "Thread URL Scheme" in Settings is simply "{url}".

Google SEO should be complaining about that on the plugins page, what if you give a thread the subject "something f", so it turns into something-f, which looks like a forum named something if you use -f postfix for forum URLs?

You can choose any URL style you like - but they must be unique, distinguishable from one another. Lacking that you will end up with broken URLs, and lose the ability to redirect.

Quote:BTW, this plugin rocks and is a big reason for me considering myBB.

Glad you like it. Smile

RE: Google SEO 1.6.5 - nicolasschabram - 04-23-2013

Hey,

after an update from 1.1.13 to 1.6.5 I've got the problem that a lot of links return a 404 error when coming from Google or any other external source. Using the internal search or links within the forums it works perfectly although the address bar shows the exact same URL.
After visiting a page via an internal link it also works with the ones from Google though. Thus I can kinda "fix" a single page's link.

Is there any way to fix this not having to click on every single page within the forums...?

Thanks for your help,

Nico

How did you update it? URLs shouldn't break unless you uninstall the plugin. For an update, deactivate/activate is sufficient.

Well, you're right: I uninstalled the plugin... :/ Is there any chance to get the URLs back?


RE: Google SEO 1.6.5 - frostschutz - 04-23-2013

You could restore the mybb_google_seo table from a database backup.

Otherwise just resubmit the Sitemap to Google, that's the fastest way to get Google back on track.

Yep, that luckily worked. Thanks a lot for your help!
