    CAN Reveal Private Forums

    Small Bug with displaying private forums:

    If you have a private forum with id 5 and try acessing page - /archive/5 it won't show the threads BUT if you add a zero to the front and try - /archive/05 it WILL lists the private forum.

    To fix find:
    PHP Code:
        while($urlArray[$a] != "archive") {
            
    $a++;
        }

        
    $forumID=$urlArray[($a+1)]; 
    add below:
    PHP Code:
    $forumID $forumID 0

    Are you using an IIS server also? I am and can not get the links to work properly either. I would really love to get this working.

    Google search

    I just read in clickz that Google can now crawl dynamically generated pages. Is that true?? =
    Yup.

    Search Google for "Thorikos" and fifth link down is my forum. I think I've had a few referrals from posts to do with oikoi too.

    What are the major search engines other than Google that this hack would work on?

    Did anyone ever figure out why some people had a problem where any of the links reloads the index.php page?

    Here is an example http://www.reefcentral.com/vbulletin/archive/index.php

    I'd love to get this hack to work.

    edit: changed Eva's gender to more correctly reflect the actual person
    thanks overgrow, my pagerank boost was from linking to my main site eva2000.com which has a very very high rank

    unfortunately your hack doesn't seem to show threads anymore?

    any updates?

    Hi Overgrow,

    These are just some general questions as regard to this hack.

    As google and a few others can spider ? and & URLs what other advantages does this hack have other than all the dynamic meta tags?

    What I'm getting at is - if I can do all the dynamic meta tags etc straight into my vB then removing them from the equation why would this hack improve the ability for search engines to spider.

    As far as I can see the only difference would be the / in the URL's as opposed to ? and &'s. Are there any other advantages? Are they easier to spider because 'less clutter' from CSS, images etc?

    Just wondering as I'm not that enlightened on exactly how search engines (specifically google) work, and what are all the benifits of this script over just inserting dynamic meta tags straight into your actual forum pages.

    Cheers

    soon after I included this hack on my site, google kicked me out completely...
    Hope it doesn't have to do anything with this hack...
