    That's awesome. It wouldn't hurt anything using those changes with filburt's template modification, would it, just to be positive Google won't be met with sessionid's?

      This works quite well. Before implementation, Google saw 8 pages of my board. Now it has hundreds. I tweaked a few more things and believe it will have thousands next go around.

          Yeah, I tweaked it to spider the first 9 pages of multi-page threads and I've got 2500 forum pages listed in Google!

              Sure. I've modified it a bit from what filburt posted, so if you use this exactly you will need to change the links in the templates to reflect this format, but it should still work for you.

              Code:
              RewriteEngine on
              RewriteRule ^f(.*)-(.*).html forumdisplay.php?s=$1&forumid=$2
              RewriteRule ^t(.*)-(.*).html showthread.php?s=$1&threadid=$2

                well i have this in my file now:

                Code:
                Options +FollowSymlinks
                ErrorDocument 404 /forums/archive/index.php
                RewriteEngine on
                RewriteRule ^f(.*)-(.*).html forumdisplay.php?s=$1&forumid=$2
                RewriteRule ^t(.*)-(.*).html showthread.php?s=$1&threadid=$2
                i tried all sorts of different combinations of lines, since i'm a n00b. keeps on saying server misconfiguration. i had it working on the old server, but i moved, so now no luck...

                  i've tried this code, but whenever i add the .htaccess file, it always says forbidden, and won't let me do anything, i've tried chomoding everything, but still nothing comes from it

                        thanks for the hack. it's been work great except that on the top of the forum, there are some links for parent forums. it looks like
                        "forums > main forums > sub forum"

                        the links still contain session id. i couldnt find the template for it. can someone help? thanks.
