Any idea about 1.1.4?

Hello all,
Is it possible to fix the addresses of individual photos in smf-gallery-lite?
Now I have this entry in hatccess:

Code: [Select]
# Rules for: smf-gallery-lite
RewriteRule ^gallery/index\.php$ index.php?action=gallery [L,QSA]
RewriteRule ^gallery/category/([^/]+)/?$ ./index.php?action=gallery;cat=$1 [L,QSA]
RewriteRule ^gallery/picture/([^/]+)/?$ ./index.php?action=gallery;sa=view;id=$1 [L,QSA]

The address of a single photo looks like this:

Code: [Select]
www.my-side.com/gallery/?sa=view&id=31
Thank you greetings

I have installed Pretty URLs onto my 2.0.15 forum. Silly question, what do I need to do to set it up? Just tick "enable and rewrite" then save, or do I have to enter anything into the Skip Actions List box? or anything else?
Thanks in advance
Pete

Yep just enable for the urls then that's it. Nothing needed in the skip action list.

Thanks, Done that and it worked. What does "Use caching instead of database table for PrettyUrls" do? Should I leave it unticked?

My homepage still has /index.php. ( http://bsac10c11c12.co.uk/smf/index.ph)Is there anything I can do about that? And smf on all? would it help google if that wasn't there? Ah! or do I just need to clear my cache?

I'm finding this mod very helpful for getting the bots to crawl, but now links from other sites to mine no longer work. Should I be setting up a redirect for old URLs? and if so, how?
Thanks

I'll tell you right now... this mod has **NO** effect on bots crawling your site and almost no effect (if any) on SEO.
PrettyURLs are good for one thing only, and that is human readability.

Actually, isn't it more about what Google results show? Which is what we see when we do a search? If so then there is a benefit from using this mod.
So back to my original question, can I set up a redirect for the old URLs?
I appreciate any help.
Pete

Old urls should redirect to to the new ones.

I'm getting a lot of error message showing this

8: Undefined index: pretty_enable_filters

Is this normal? Will they go away when new URLs settle? Or is there something wrong with my install?

@ petewadey: I think there's something wrong with your install, it works without a hitch on our (very) custom theme of our site/forum (not that it has much to do with the theme, just letting you know).

Do you have other Mods installed, and did you try without them?

By the way, the interface of this Mod is very, very arcane, but the functionality isn't...

Thanks Dwev. I gave it time to settle and all seems fine now. My service provider assured me this would happen, and it appears they were right. Thanks again

Good to hear that it works!

And thanks for the feedback, didn't know that it could take a while for this to take hold, it worked immediately on my server.
