Hi there YAF folks.

I have a question, i don't think this is possible myself, but i wanna make sure.

Is it possible to rewrite the YAF forum's URL's from something like this:


to something like this:

yaf?topic=This-is-the-title-of-the-post (where this takes the subject string).

I would guess it is not, since i don't know how it should get the subject string and use it as a URL, they way YAF seems to be build.

Can anyone clarify this for me? Thanks.

Yes, it is possible.


However, I don't know how I got mine to do it lol

I think it has something to do with a SEO setting or something.

Yeah, you can change it to long string. You simply have to enable urlrewriting = "true" in app.config file. It will then follow the rules in urlrewriter.config file to rewrite the url.
