Thanks for the updated version frostschutz Smile
Amazing plugin for MyBB SEO.
- MyBB Heart
It is same version, just changed compatibility lane - am I right?
[MyBB 1.8 Czech translation] [MyBB 1.8 plugins]: Prune old PMs + optimize DB plugin --- Thank you/like system
Question. Are there any changes included in this version or was just plugin compatibility line changed to reflect 1.8?

This is mainly to satisfy those who'd rather download from the new mods site.
Compared to the version from the old mods site, it only fixes the plugin status icons for 1.8.
Which only affects people who didn't download from GitHub and never updated from MyBB 1.6.
Getting "404 Not Found" when opening a forum, thread or profile and idk what else. Edited all the required htaccess stuff, enabled all the specific seo stuff. Other then, i didn't touch any other settings.

My forum is located under

My htaccess:  (mybb doesn't let it post here for some reason)

I deativated the plugin for now.
Thank you for update the plugin, i´m testing the plugin, now have a question:

In the ACP display the PluginLibrary : is incompatible with MyBB 1.8.7

It is safe to used the Plugin SEO with PluginLibrary OutDate?

It's safe. It's not really a plugin so compatibility should not matter.

But the one from here should be compatible:

You should get rid of the hello_pl.php, that is not required unless you're a developer looking for an example using PluginLibrary.


Not sure what you expect with all those rewritecond rewrites, followed by a catchall rule, then followed at the bottom with the Google SEO rules that will never apply because of the above. Either get rid of this rewrite mess altogether or put it at the very bottom of your file, then it might work.

Google SEO does not verify your .htaccess or webserver setup for validity; it can only make suggestions, in the end configuring the webserver properly is your job as webmaster
I see, wasn't aware how the htaccess works exactly.
Anyway, just removed all the "unnecessary" stuff and it works now. Thanks!
A question, i'd like to change the "Thread" into "Topic" for the links. Is that possible?
