Beta 5 Friendly URL


Recommended Posts

I went here: 1. Tools & Settings >2. System Settings >3. System >4. Server Environment

To enable friendly URLs but it's not happening. How is this supposed to be done in beta 5? I have imported a test database fine. All of the (thousands and thousands) of existing threads do not have friendly URLs.

Is there any way we can change the way the URLs are done? Because it looks really weird if you have your forum running in a directory on your site called "forum" and you go into a forum and are then left with a url which looks like http://www.random.com/forum/forum/1-new-forum

What editing needs to be done over there? (furlTemplates.php)

I understand that I need to add mod_rewrite to .htaccess:

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /forumz/
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} !..+$
RewriteRule . /forum/index.php [L]

and $INFO['use_friendly_urls'] = '1'; to conf_global.php.
