Hi Team,

We are facing certain issues in SEO optimization of the pages generated in the Forum.

1. The URL's generated for the Forum pages are not at all SEO friendly. They involve special characters. e.g.

a. https://www.wasp3d.com/Forum/default.aspx?g=login&ReturnUrl=%2fForum%2f
b. https://www.wasp3d.com/Forum/default.aspx?g=posts&t=1571

And more.

2. The Meta details of[ the pages generated are not dynamic in nature. All the pages generated are carrying the same meta details irrespective of the actual Page title and content that should have been picked up as Meta details during a new Thread/ topic/ post creation.

Need to Customize our forum pages:

1. New URL rewriting to SEO friendly manner + Old URL’s correction.
2. Meta details to be dynamically generated for Topics pages.

Please guide us in a step by step manner as on how to manage our forum as the same.

Please help us resolve these issues by guiding us from where the settings regarding to these features can be accessed and configured if they can be configured to satisfaction in terms of achieving optimal SEO results over forum pages.

Best Regards,
WASP3D

Thanks. Enabling URL rewrite worked. But how do we customize the URL. For example, this thread appears as https://yetanotherforum.net/forum/ posts/m72415-SEO-optimization-of-the-pages-generated-in-the-Forum, while in our case the URL is some thing like http://192.168.1.130/For...ics27_Announcements.aspx . How do i move everything to /POSTS ? also can i remove the yaf_topics27 completly?

I see that your forum doesnt have a copyright footer, and you dont have any removal license. I assume you'r running an illegal copy. Im afraid at this point i cant help you. The only option would be if you upgrade to the latest version.

Odd i didn't find it in the database.

Regarding the issue at this to your app.config...

 <add key="YAF.UrlRewritingFormat" value="advanced" />


But it depends which version you are using. I still recommend upgrading to the latest version
