I love Kunena.

However I'm having a really hard time getting the SEF urls to work.

Joomla 1.5.22
Kunena 1.7.0

I've used AceSEF and sh404sef in the past but I'd like to see what folks are using that is working well for them.

Presently, I have a problem when SEF urls are enabled the buttons for "Post", "Quote", "Moderate", etc. are all redirected to .... /post

This is not a thread asking for support. I just want to know how people are getting Kunena 1.7.0 to deliver accurate SEF urls.


Thanks

M

There are two questions here:

(1) How to implement SEO. This is answered in msg #2 of this topic.

(2) How to make sure that the forum buttons do what they're supposed to do when you have SEO enabled: This is dealt with by making sure that you've properly setup your Kunena menu. See How do I restore my Kunena menu?

I cannot seem to get this to work. I see an option on the FORUM CONFIGURATION to say "YES" to SEO friendly URL's and to say yes to not showing category id's etc. yet I still get ridiculous urls like www.domain.com/index=catid54etc.etc.etc

I want my forum to be simple like www.domain.com/forum/category/topic title

How can I get this to work?

I cannot find where to edit the options for:

# Use Apache mod_rewrite: Yes
# Add suffix to URLs: No

Where will I find where to change these?

Ok, found them in Global settings.

I have no idea about htaccess etc. - Is it as simple as changing the file name as suggested or do I need to have some programming knowledge to get these SEO-friendly URL's working?

I have made all the changes other than mucking around with the Apache/htaccess for now. It now seems to go to a SEO friendly URL but the pages are not located, i.e. clicking the forum button now takes me to a dead page (but the URL looks much better!!). Is this what needs to be address in the httaccess?

There is nothing in Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) that suggests you have to change anything in the file .htaccess; therefore you don't need to change the file .htaccess.

If you are getting "page not found" errors, it's because your menu items are wrong (or broken). That's a different topic. Please read the FAQs (see the menu tab on this page) and particularly the part about how to fix Kunena menu problems.
