^^^ lol @ robot :)

Nibogo, the screenshots of the PRO version doesn't work...
I'm interested in this mod, especially this part: "Hierarchic URL Structure: URLs would follow a pattern, so you can easily go to the board of a topic just removing the topic part of the URL. Just like folders."

Do you have a demo somewhere where I can see how it (all the features) works ?

I installed the light version and this error keeps appearing into my error log:

Unknown column 'b.member_groups' in 'where clause'
 /home/xxxx/public_html/forum/Sources/Subs-Seo.php
Row: 229

Any thoughts?
Based on 2 years of using an 11.000 members SMF Forum, 4 wordpress sites, 2 joomla sites, and 1 open-cart ecommerce site with them I recommend you: limepath.com.

They are based in UK and have plans starting from 3 pounds that include: 5gb data/50gb bandwith/unlimited databases. I have the middle plan.

Today, if you're not confused it means you're not thinking clear!

Hello, How do you upgrade ticket to urgent to high in your support area?
It is low by default and I can't find option to upgrade to high.

After installation of SEO Pro Mod, any posting/modifying or external link posting giving me 404 page.
If I, or member want to post or modify anything after submitting  it will go to 404 page. Post will eventually show in forum but first it will be redirected to 404.

Also when I insert external link in the post, it will add my main domain in front of link, that will again send me to 404 page. Like this:

I want to link to hxxp:someothersite.com [nonactive], but inserting hiper link, I will get this:

hxxp:mysite.com/smf/seored/u=http%3A%2F%2Fsomeothersite.com%2%2F%3Fcat%3D5 [nonactive]

In the preview of post I just see [ url ]http://someothersite.com[ /url ]

I am running 2.0.2 version with  Default Theme - Curve

I tried installing mod on my existing web site. Did not work. I installed mod on brand new fresh installation of SMF. Did not work. I installed this mod on SMF forum installed in root directory as well as in sub directory, did not work. I installed your mod on SMF forum freshly installed using Fantastico on Hostgator. Did not work. I installed your mod on manually installed forum downloaded from SMF download section. Did not work. I installed your mod on freshly installed SMF using Softocolous  on Webhostpad servers. Did not work. I installed your mod on manually instaled SMF hosted on Webhosting pad server. Did not work.

So I tried using your mod on two different hosting companies, using manually and automatically installed SMF forums. I tried on my existing website as well as on freshly installed forums, without any additional mods installed. DID NOT WORK.

Ah yeah....also I repeated all above mentioned scenarios with two of your latest versions of your mod. Did not work.

I offered you access to my cpanel and ftp. You did not reply to that. I asked you what changes on server my host should do to make it work. You did not reply to that . Your technical support is non-exhisting, slowest and worst I ever experienced. You are not giving me any useful information that possibly can solve issue. Your last reply was exactly like this: "if that feature is not working I don't know why you need it so badly, all the other features are going to work and you can even use another pretty urls mod thatworks with your server"

Because I paid for full set of promised features, not for some of them.

Not likely, but I am open to possibility that could be issue with two very popular and known hosting companies. However any attempt to get any useful information from tech support of this mod failed.

Mod features sounds good in theory, that is why I purchase it in first place, but if you have problem with it, do not count on any tech support. IT DOES NOT EXIST. After opening ticket, it will take a days for you to get rubbish non helping replay from owner.  Refund of the money is also rejected.
If anyone is interested screen capture of complete conversation with tech support is available. Good only for laugh !
I regret that I did not search forums on seller before I paid for this mode. If you do, you could find other buyers with similar issues with this guy.

I gave you an htaccess that worked for everybody but you, it didn't worked, I toll you what you could ask to Hostgator, but your reply was that you tried in two hosting companies. That feature is working normally in all tests I did, and I'm in my last week of this semester so I've final exams almost every day, that's why I'm not replying as fast as you would like to.

Not only that you are lousy businessman, but you lie as well. Ticket is still open on your admin area. There is no any reply from you where you are giving me any answer what possibly Hostgator should do to make it work. If you are referring to this replay"To verify, script should be working normally, if pretty urls are, redirection from php files should do it too. I've no reports about it from other customers". You obviously did not even read what problem was. And what are you talking about in this replay anyway? What files you are referring to?

If you had time issue because of personal things, you could say something about it, not let buyers wait 3 or 4 days for replay. Speed of your reply doesn't really mean anything anyway, since they are worthless. 
It is very interesting how you found time right away to reply very quickly to critic in public forum !
