Does anyone recommend any of these SEO mods for SMF?

1. Pretty URLS
2. Optimus Brave
3. Anti-SID canonical tag
4. SMF Packs Pro

or any others you may know of


Thank You

shadav

well pretty urls isn't really a seo mod, but i prefer it over the standard smf links, makes them more user friendly

optimus brave yes

the other 2 i haven't heard of or used so can't say

The funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything it's too late to stop reading it

I use optimus on all my sites! ;)  8)

Doesn't appear as if Optimus is likely to be available for 2.1 though.

As far as the SMFPACKS  (Packs not Hacks) one is concerned - has anyone any experience with them? Seems the user behind smfpacks hasn't posted here for quite some time...

errr yeah the ah smf packs site is more or less purchase as is, from my experience so far with them...not saying anything bad, they do offer some nice mods, which I do own a few but reaching out for help from them hasn't been the best in my opinion...so just throwing it out there, if you plan on buying anything be prepared to fix/update things on your own or possibly with help from some folks here (sometimes free, sometimes paid, just depends on what the issue is) they usually are busy, I don't think they are really doing much with smf these days...again all just my opinions here so take it with a grain of salt

This one has a weird bug that causes SMF to show a blank screen for all areas. I had to fix this while upgrading a client's forum.

I own a few of his mods and have never had a problem getting help. Just my experience.
Please do not PM me for support.

Could that issue be down to whether or not you have an active subscription?

Although it's no longer being supported you can still download the 2.1 version and use as is. It works just fine on 2.1. ;)

Should be version 2.9.4:

I don't see any code in that branch, though.

na I have/had active licenses....asked questions before purchasing, was told it did what I wanted, after purchasing it in fact did not and they were unavailable to work on it...lmfao and which I hired you to make it do what I wanted ;)
and well other questions I had, I ended up having to fix myself or with help from folks here
not saying anything bad against them, just saying, as I said take it with a grain of salt, just my personal experience so far

"Optimus Brave" - very good and useful mod. Recommend!

"Pretty URLS" - worked for a while with this mod. It makes urls with words. But the addresses get very long - since it includes both the name of the subforum and the name of the topic. So I decided to keep the standard urls.

"Anti-SID canonical tag" - this mod is only for the old version of the forum
SMF Forum - "Art Cafe" - https://art-cafe.info/

whereas in that case it was mostly changing arrays... mostly.
