http://test.com/cat-hollywood-actress-1/img-vanessa-21.htm

The one thing stopping me from using 4images on my live site is the problem with the URL


After spending several weeks fine tuning and adding lots of great mods to my site on a localhost WAMP test area I just can't get the URLs the way I want them


I've been thru the 27 pages of this MOD:

[Mod] Search Engine Friendly URLs aka Short URLs
http://www.4homepages.de/forum/index.php?topic=6729.0

and whilst I quite like the effect
eg.
www.mysite.com/cat-12 
www.mysite.com/images-321

I can't get my dropdown menu to function with that particular mod
(and also it's not great for Google SEO as it has no category or image name in the URL)




I've also tried the mod on this current thread - [MOD] Google Friendly Urls For 4images Best Seo Mod - but can't manipulate the URL the way I want because I am struggling with REGEX and the .htaccess, and my own understanding of php coding

I appreciate that you have to have the cat ID and image ID in every URL using this mod but can I split up the long URL with a forward slash? (And remove the .htm extension)

eg. I want:
www.mysite.com/categoryname-12/imagename-43

I've also managed to remove the .htm / .html / .php ending successfully but would like to split up the category and the image with a forward slash (/)

because I have sub-categories, the URL currently looks ridiculous and would help if I could have forward slashes like this - category / subcat / image


any suggestions/advice?

hey

didi you got the solution

even im trying for the same

if you use unmodified code from the original tutorial on first page of this topic, you should not see all the parent categories in the links, only current category name.
as of links to image details, in includes/sessions.php find
Code: [Select]
//return get_category_url($row['cat_id']).'-'.str_replace('+','-',urlencode($row['image_name'])).'-'.$image_id;
replace it with
Code: [Select]
return get_category_url($row['cat_id']).'-'.str_replace('+','-',urlencode($row['image_name'])).'-'.$image_id;

I am using your given sessions.php file which didnt have the code which you tell to replace.
I have attached your given sessions.php file which i am currently using plz plz edit it for better seo and also tell can i use it with 4images 1.6.7  for better seo and user flags?

the same is not working

Im replacing this in step 2.... I cant find the negative effects.... however
Code: [Select]
if ($this->mode == "get" && strpos($url, $this->session_id) === false) {
Why is my session.php different? I cant find the mod it is related to... using 1.7.6

Exactly what is the problem? On my test site dropdown works fine. You can try replacing POST with GET in category_dropdown_form.html template.

the splitting path with slashes is more complicated then it looks, due to 4images using relative paths ./ and ../

.htm you can remove in includes/sessions.php and in .htaccess

If you know a little how HTML works, then this would not surprise you at all. This is normal and you can't do anything about it without javascript or without removing dropdown.

Step three says to find this code
Code: [Select]
function url($url, $amp = "&") {
    global $l;
    $dummy_array = explode("#", $url);
    $url = $dummy_array[0];

    if ($this->mode == "get" && !preg_match("/".SESSION_NAME."=/i", $url)) {
      $url .= preg_match("/\?/", $url) ? "$amp" : "?";
      $url .= SESSION_NAME."=".$this->session_id;
    }

    if (!empty($l)) {
      $url .= preg_match("/\?/", $url) ? "$amp" : "?";
      $url .= "l=".$l;
    }

    $url .= (isset($dummy_array[1])) ? "#".$dummy_array[1] : "";
    return $url;
  }



however

Mine is like this :
Code: [Select]
function url($url, $amp = "&") {
    global $l;
    $dummy_array = explode("#", $url);
    $url = $dummy_array[0];

    if ($this->mode == "get" && strpos($url, $this->session_id) === false) {
      $url .= strpos($url, '?') !== false ? $amp : "?";
      $url .= SESSION_NAME."=".$this->session_id;
    }

    if (!empty($l)) {
      $url .= strpos($url, '?') !== false ? $amp : "?";
      $url .= "l=".$l;
    }

    $url .= (isset($dummy_array[1])) ? "#".$dummy_array[1] : "";
    return $url;


This line of code is different
Code: [Select]
  if ($this->mode == "get" && strpos($url, $this->session_id) === false) {
I dont know why it is didfferent... I cant find the mod if there is one that added the code to make it different... is it safe to take that out of there in order to do the last step of this mod without breaking anything?

yes, replace that block of code and then in the new code replace
Code: [Select]
    if ($this->mode == "get" && strstr($url, $this->session_id)) {
      $url .= strpos($url, '?') !== false ? '&' : '?';
      $url .= SESSION_NAME."=".$this->session_id;
    }
    if (!empty($l)) {
      $url .= strpos($url, '?') ? '&' : '?';
      $url .= "l=".$l;
    }
    $url = str_replace('&', $amp, $url);
    $url .= isset($dummy_array[1]) ? "#".$dummy_array[1] : "";
    return $url;


with:
Code: [Select]
    if ($this->mode == "get" && strpos($url, $this->session_id) === false) {
      $url .= strpos($url, '?') !== false ? $amp : "?";
      $url .= SESSION_NAME."=".$this->session_id;
    }

    if (!empty($l)) {
      $url .= strpos($url, '?') !== false ? $amp : "?";
      $url .= "l=".$l;
    }

    $url = str_replace('&', $amp, $url);
    $url .= (isset($dummy_array[1])) ? "#".$dummy_array[1] : "";
    return $url;
