Full Friendly URLs .HTACCESS Hack?

It's not a bug, it's intended, and I'm not sure if you can rewrite them as they're already rewritten.


That's intended? IMO the SEO and friendliness of "Full Friendly URLs" leaves a lot to be desired. As I've seen others mention, the sub directories shouldn't identify content type but either provide a hierarchical data structure or remove the sub directories altogether.

Super annoying. Until it's fixed, hacked, or customization is offered... this is a big enough irritation to keep using vb + vbseo on new projects.

It's intended to use content types in URLs, therefore it's up to you what you choose to call your XF directory. There have been many, many suggestions to change it.

Try this, no guarantees though.

RewriteEngine on
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^domain.com/forum$ [NC]
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ http://domain.com/$1 [R=301]
