Hello,
i'm going to buy xf, i like the structure and the support and customers community, instead of vb, but there's a thing that i don't like: the url seo firendly structure.
Now, if in next releases will be possible to change and customize this structure i buy xf, if not i'm forced to stay on vb.

Thanks a lot :)

I'm curious too. Clean semantic URLs are how things should be. GET based query stings are so 90's.

Great idea Kier, at least give forum admin's a lot of options, like what fields they want in user profile forms.
Giving admins lots of options is precisely what XenForo is not about. Did you miss the memo? ;)

LOL, at least my threads are public.

That one is not even readable by the public is it ??
I think it's the IB vs XF thread in the Announcement Forum that is being referred to. Of course, I don't think anyone is under the illusion that Adrian actually wrote it.

Yes, but the 'big one' is in the private forum if I am correct, of course I was banned last October so I would not know for sure.

My board is written in Turkish and there are charachters that non-turkish visitors won't recognize. That makes the url's which contains turkish charachters hard to write if not copied. I have mentioned this before and it was said xenforo is designed this way :) Hope there will be an option to the seo functions where non-english charachters will convert to english ones.

The URLs are not customizable in the way you want. I couldn't comment on whether that might happen in the future - mostly depends on demand (as well as technical feasibility).

No Zend_Controller_Router_Rewrite() option there? If you could use this, then you could call your controllers whatever you want, even dynamically.

We don't use Zend_Controller at all. Nor do we use the Zend router, or its rewrite scheme. All of that is bespoke XenForo code.
