Empty the pretty_urls_cache folder.
Then enable use caching instead of the database table in pretty urls settings.

I've run across an issue with pretty urls
https://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=578994.0
when a new user tries to log in they get redirected to
http://forum.foamyfanatics.net/agreement/?sa=policy

Not Found
The requested URL was not found on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

I do have the agreement in place, I do have something written into the privacy policy
===
I tried resetting the htaccess as Arantor suggested but no joy, same issue
I turned off pretty urls and it worked user could log in and was redirected to
http://forum.foamyfanatics.net/index.php?action=agreement;sa=policy
where they could accept the privacy policy

running 2.0.18 and 2.4a pretty urls with the prettyurls-extras-1.0
if it helps i've attached my htaccess

I think it might be a mod_security issue. Disable mod_security.
As all your other urls on your forum seem to be ok.

Hi,
is it worth?
I ve heard that is not good for SEO...
forum since 2004 with abut 2 mln posts...
Should I use pretty urls mode?

vbgamer45

I still look like for urls, and boards. That's what I use it for. Actions not so much.
I still think it helps a little bit with keywords on pages/in search engines it hightlights the keyword in the url

well if you have an established forum already and then install pretty urls it can hurt your search engine ranking and stuff for a bit but should bounce back over time

pretty urls is more for end user than bots, as the name implies it makes the urls pretty  :laugh: more user friendly

take the url for this topic for example
simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=146969if you post that into a topic without any explanation, no one will know what the link is for

however if you use this mod it could look something like
simplemachines.org/community/Customizing-SMF/Modifications-and-Packages/Pretty-URLsor
simplemachines.org/community/Pretty-URLs
and then the url would at least give the end user an idea of what the link is about

How can I clean the cache of pretty urls?

I don't see anything on my Admin Panel, and tried to see in the database in the server, using phpmyadmin, but, I couldn't find the table to clean the cache.

How can I do it?

Just truncate the pretty_urls_cache table that will clear the table.

Could you please explain how to do that? Like click there, go there, do this?

I can't find any table with the prefix pretty urls on phpmyadmin.

Thanks

Edit: Ok. I was able to find out how to do it.

Since a few days I am having a problem, and that's why yesterday I asked you how to clean the cache of the prettyurls Mod.

I did it, and I still have the problem. To not write again everything, you could read this small thread to understand the problem I am having.

OK so I'm setting up a new forum and figure this might be a good time to implement this mod.

I'm using SMF 2.1 RC4

Are there any known clashes / incompatibilities between this and any other mods?

Any 'cons' / downsides to pretty URLs ?

 
Please do not PM, IM or Email me with questions on astrophysics or theology.  You will get better and faster responses by asking homeless people in the street. Thank you.

Not that I know of in terms of conflicts with other mods. Unless you use two url rewrite mods
