hey, maybe this has sth to do with your plugin, Im not sure, but I hope you can help me Wink

The name in the tab isn't correct anymore. When I enter an empty subforum, the tab doesnt say "name of subforum" but it shows my forum url.

And when I enter a subforum with threads, it shows the name of the latest thread, and again not the name of the subforum as it should be :/

Here are some screenshots:

What do I have to change? Thanks for your help Smile

My forum is
I've just installed google seo and faced with the problem that the SEO URLs appear but give you errors like thread not found, thread does not exist.

I read the material troubleshooting: If the SEO URLs appear but give you errors like thread not found, thread does not exist, etc., then your Rewrite Rules do not work for some reason. Check that you have edited the .htaccess (not htaccess.txt!) correctly. Some hosts need a RewriteBase, others do not. If you are using a custom SEO URL Scheme, make sure this scheme does not have any conflicts.

Could you please give some help?
Thank you very much.

Click to Apply changes to core files.

I pressed "Apply" to apply changes to core files and the problem of the SEO URLs appear but not found occurred.
Then I reverted it, but the last not found URLs now still being not found. Others are okay.

i have the exact same problem. I am sure I edited the htaccess correctly, he still says "add (...) to htaccess"

did u manage to solve the problem???


I have the same problem

RE: Google SEO 1.6.6 - Esin - 01-05-2014

I am having some issues here and I don't know why, none of my links are working when I click view profile or view forum or view topic none of those are working at all

I am hosting my own website and have apache webserver and what not installed on CentOS, here is my .httaccess file, I do not get any error's on the admin plugin page for this plugin either so I'm stumped on why it's not working Apache version 2.2.15 and I do not have a domain name yet, I'm running of ip for my address

apache is set to point at a certain folder for my web root which I already configured so I assume I only need / and not a /www/public/ cause when I type in the address it goes to the right directory and I can't access my website via ip + www/public/ it wont work only the ip to the site will work

I thought it may had something to do with other mods so I did a fresh install and only added the plugin library and google seo to no avail, admincp still says I'm okay but i get can't find page when viewing forum or topic

RE: Google SEO 1.6.6 - frostschutz - 01-05-2014

If the plugin status is showing that everything is okay (i.e. you put the .htaccess file in the correct location) then it's your webserver which doesn't have mod_rewrite enabled.

RE: Google SEO 1.6.6 - Esin - 01-05-2014

Alright I didn't know I had to restart Apache after editing the line, it works now finally yay, the line for it was commented out in my config file for apache but now it's all working and in good shape, I thought it may have been an ip error or something, thank you so much for the help that I did get

RE: Google SEO 1.6.6 - Ados - 01-07-2014

frostschutz ,

Just sent you a PM, hope you like it!

I have a question, the titles of additional pages of a thread (e.g. 2, 3, etc) have the same title as the first (main page), causing duplicate titles. I have noticed you insert the "?page=" code into the URL for each additional code but what about the title of the page?

Is there any reason for this or would you consider adding a "Page X" to the title of additional pages of a thread?

I have another question but I'd rather ask this first as it could be a good addition to the plugin.


RE: Google SEO 1.6.6 - frostschutz - 01-07-2014

It's described in the documentation. ( )

Thanks. I remember going through the documentation when I was installing the plugin the first time, but I was too busy trying to ensure everything was installed fine LOL I should have seen that, damn. I am not too keen in changing titles as, from my experience, rankings drop only to rank back after about 10 days or so, although this experience of mine is with Wordpress articles and changing keywords.

If I insert the variable into my forum's templates, am I right assuming that the URL structure will remain exactly as it were since the URLs do contain "Page X" already for the additional pages?

Also, when I update MyBB core for future updates and for your future plugin's updates, will I have to insert that variable again into the templates or will it stay put?


RE: Google SEO 1.6.6 - frostschutz - 01-07-2014

It will stay put for as long as that particular template isn't updated.

I doubt that adding a page number to the title would have any negative effect on your rankings.
