Show Local URL Titles 2.0.1 by Nathaniel

This mod turns the boring Local/Internal URLs for Posts, Threads, Boards and User profile's into their actual titles so that your forums look better and more professional. Its very similar to a functionality from vB which does a similar thing. The mod has settings for parsing the titles on Posting and Page view, as well as a maintenance function that can convert the urls for each of your forum's existing posts.

This URL (for new websites): ""
Would be turned into this title which links to the same page but has different text "Welcome to SMF!".

Settings are found in the Admin panel:
Look in the "Configuration" -> "Modification Settings" -> "Miscellaneous" section of your admin panel.

Backup your database:
Please note that you should always backup your database before using the "Click here to parse the local url titles for all existing messages" function, the mod author takes no liability for the corruption of data.

The License for this mod should be contained within the mod package, in a text file called LICENSE.

Version Support:
This mod is officially supported for SMF 2.0 final only. Below is a list of available versions of this mod and the previous versions of SMF that they supported. Use them at your own risk. The mod author will not be supporting or upgrading this mod in any way for versions of SMF below 2.0.

Version 1.1: SMF 1.1.x and versions of SMF 2 before SMF 2 RC4.
Version 2.0: SMF 2 RC4.
Version 2.0.1: SMF 2 RC5.

The "get_local_url_title" function in the "Subs-ShowLocalUrlTitles.php" file has extensive commenting for the $comparisons array, which allows you to specify the url types that are parsed. While the mod includes four comparisons (message, topic, board and user profile) you can add your own there if you want to.

If this mod has helped you, then feel free to support the developer by Donating. Any amount of money is welcome.
