Manual Install Instructions for SMF


Are you interested in developing this customization?  I do not have time nowadays to properly maintain my customizations.  I wish to allow those who are interested in developing to continue to develop and enhance them.  Please pm me for more details :)

This Mod is intended for those who are unable to use SEF URLS because of checks that fail but are still able to use urls such as hxxp://,1.0.html

Make sure that urls such as hxxp://,1.0.html work on your site before enabling this option! This can cause your forum to not work. If you do happen to enable this option and it does not work on your forum you can fix this temporally until you can shut the option off by adding this to your Settings.php:
$disable_sef = true;

You can Enable the Override Option in
Admin -> Features and Options
You will find it right below the "Search engine friendly URLs" Option.
