  • Thanks to Wallphone, I eventually fulfilled my own add-on request.
  • Wohoo! I'm first. Yep, it seems to be working fine. It displays all the topics in which I havnt replied. It includes topics that I started and nobody else answered in too.
  • I'm second! And it works fine: http://www.larp-welt.de/forum/ ! Great Idea! Thank you!
  • I saw it first on the Code Igniter forums, but I guess CI is not the first to have this in its forums.
  • To seo Friendly Urls
    Add
    RewriteRule ^discussions/unanswered/(.*)$ /discussions/?View=UnansweredDiscussions [QSA,L]
    To the .htaccess

    Then open up
    /path/to/vanilla/extensions/UnansweredDiscussions/default.php

    Find :
    $Url = GetUrl(
    $Configuration,
    'index.php', '', '', '', '',
    'View=UnansweredDiscussions');

    Replace with
    $Url = GetUrl(
    $Configuration,
    'index.php', '', '',
    'discussions/unanswered');

    And now it should like to the SEO link friendly URL
    Hope that helps
  • Thanks to share Simon.
  • The extension could be modified to test whether Friendly URLs is installed or not in which case it can add the RewriteRule in .htaccess and modify the link accordingly.
  • You would still have to add it to the htaccess manually, Any that's the easiest way at the moment

    That would be a cool feature of the plugin
  • Why do you have to add it to the .htaccess manually?
  • Well you could have the php do it but at this moment this plugin can't.

    I am not all that bothed now because its Seo'ed on my forum.
  • Mhm, I'd be willing to provide the relevant code if anyone thinks it's a worthwhile addition.
  • This extension is like (based on, for one) so many other extensions that adds a kind of filter in the panel. Do they all have the same problem? How do they manage this? Just a thought, maybe there could be a meta htaccess appender extension (kind of dangerous but Fyorl seems to know what he does) to which our extensions could register. What do you think?
  • As long as everything's setup correctly so that PHP has write access to the .htaccess file and that you make sure you open it with the 'a' command (to append) there should be no problems.
  • Sure, so we just have to wait for your new .htaccess extension !!!
  • Well, I wasn't going to write an extension, I'll provide a patch for your code though that adds it.
  • Hmm, this extension is not working for me.

    When I enable it. My URL looks like: http://localhost/forum/discussions/?discussions/unanswered

    I am using Friendly URLs, and I'm not sure why, but this filter gives me all the discussions even the ones who have comments. Any suggestions?
  • try RewriteRule ^discussions/unanswered/(.*)$ discussions/?View=UnansweredDiscussions [QSA,L]
