Cacti Message Board Changes

#1 Post by raX » Sun Oct 17, 2004 9:02 pm

I have made a few noteworthy changes to the message board this evening. First, the small changes.

1) Upgraded phpBB to version 2.0.10
2) Upgraded the attachment MOD to version 2.3.10

The big improvement is that I installed the phpBB search engine optimization MOD. This MOD removes all of the dynamic URLs for anonymous users using Apache's mod_rewrite so that search engines will index the message board. I am sure many have noticed that phpBB's builtin search is pretty poor. Being able to search the contents of this board using Google will make it much easier to find the information that you are looking for.

The only real downside to this MOD is that I had to disable anonymous user posting.

Let me know if you notice anything strange or run into any problems.
