This issue should really be fixed , just having the category short link is not enough for search engine , even the paging should be friendly link .

Hello,

as my post may be overread, and i think it is important for us all, here again:

Hello,

I know it has been asked seveal times in this topic before, and also it has been given an answer, but I want to give a suggestion for this...

Question is: Can I change the URL: mysite.com/img123.htm to mysite.com/image_name.htm ?

The answer was: NO, because when 2 images have same name, it won´t work, the 4images is based on unique ID-Numbers.

Ok, here comes my suggestion:

Could we generate URLs like this instead, so we have still the ID, but we´re using the image or cat name in the URL, which helps a lot in SEO :

mysite.com/image_name-ID.htm or
mysite.com/image_name/ID.htm

Regards,
Daniel

-the root folder is the folder where you have installed the 4images files into.
- .htaccess is not a folder it is a file
- do not forget the dot in front of it
- sometimes the file is hidden or you have to create one

that's because 4images parses the link for paging class before it calls the class, then during generating the paging, it simply add page=NN to the url query.
So, if you want it replace url with this mod, you will need find every instances where paging.php is being used, remove parsing the url through $site_sess->url() function and then fix paging.php class to parse every url it created through $site_sess->url() function. I think its a messy process...

can u give an example?

can you  :wink:

Great idea!
How can we do that?

My idea:

Category: mysite.com/ID-category_name.htm
Details: mysite.com/ID-category_name-imgID.htm

Thanks for helping!

Cheers,

Markus

Hello, this mod is working for me..... i can have a search engine friendly url.

But with a white page with error 404 , can't fiend page....

what should be the cause and how to find this out ? i think there is something that my server is not accepting, the new url's...maybe it doesn't support this MOD ?

Kindest regards,
Mathew

1) made a misstake?
2) provide error logs - then we'll talk ;)

Maybe i will get a step closer ... do i have to write the .htaccess in word or another program...? or notepad? ...
i have a   .htaccess.txt   file !! when i rename it to simply   .htaccess  the computer will not recognise the format of the file .....

But i have the short url's :) whit blank pages .....

i leave my site with the error on it ....

www.avatarcorner.com

notepad is fine


Make sure that mod_rewrite is enabled on your server

As I said, look at the error logs and if it say something like
Quote
file cat123.html does not exists
then it means either mod_rewrite is not enabled, your .htaccess is not set properly.or simply .htaccess is being ignored.
