hello, my forum is acting abnormal when i click to home page some time like show as website.com/forum and sometime its open website.com and some time its open website.com/index.php and they are showing diffrent page titles for these all so i think its effect my seo i add same title and meta tage for all the but when now i open my website its open this like website.com/index.php and showing no meta tag and page title.
what is going on why this happening i think its effect seo very bad
Could you please confirm you are on the latest release of the platform, and that you are using a default unaltered theme with no plugins activated? Also, please check to see which pages you are on when you believe it to be showing incorrectly. We can then take a look at that
no i am not on default theme , but its also not changing to default theme and plugins disable. i am receiving error on website.com/index.php
Are the links that you're clicking to arrive at these variations each part of the software or are they manual links which may be outdated in your system?
Also as mentioned above, please check which pages you are clicking on the links on that area leading to an incorrect location, and let us know these pages. We can then take a look
Did you manage to get this sorted @Howard L Martinez ?
just why u not see the meta tags and title why not work for the link i add ? like mywebsite.com/index.php , because i don't know if some specific click goes to this link but some time when i go to home page its open mywebsite.com/index.php
and also when every i open any section its open like this
its index.php in my all links its right or some thing is wrong ?
If your links contain index.php and are not being rewritten to exclude it, you would want to check the Rewrite URLs setting in ACP -> System -> Search Engine Optimization. Please ensure you follow the instructions (in the description of the field) to apply the .htaccess. (please note: .htaccess only works with Apache web servers. If you run something else you will need to have a server administrator write these URL rewrites for you)
With that said, the index.php should not be impacting anything from the meta tag editor. However, we would need to know the URL which you are finding these links on and if they are a part of the software or manual.
what are the advantage of enabling rewritten enables? and removing the index.php from all urls ?
and when i click this its open the index.php
Your screenshot isnt showing on the link there, so I cannot see what you are looking at.
The advantage to using rewrites is that they are more human readable to your members.
may be u see the screenshot now if u not its show just when i click forums in my home page its open the link website.com/index.php and all wrong meta tag and titles
and friendly url also good for SEO?
Friendly URL would indeed be good for SEO, yes. If you are seeing index.php then it is indeed because you dont have friendly URLs switched on within System->Search Engine Optimization
stll meta tag is not working properly when its showing forum - website name when i enter the meta tag and title for this page
Did you ensure you have the htaccess in place as previously mentioned? If so, we would need your access details on file to be up to date for us to take a closer look. Your FTP details at present appear to be incorrect
