    Default OR 1 SEO URLs

    Hi there,
    I am very new to this software. I actually stumbled upon it while doing mod rewrite stuff for a new client, who's site I am talking over.
    My questions are:
    1. Is there already a SEO URL module for OR ver 1?
    2. IF the client is happy w/ ver 1 is there a reason to upgrade to ver 2?

    moved this to the Version 1 forums.

    There is no SEO modifications to OR 1.x that I'm aware of. I'm sure somebody may have made something but to my knowledge nobody has made one available on the forums.

    Good reason to upgrade would be that OR 1.x is no longer supported and no further development is planned for it. There are a plethora of new features in 2.x that make upgrading well worth the effort.

    Version 2 does have SEF URL's. There is also a thread in the 1.X area about getting SEF URL's for version 1 but it would probabaly be faster to upgrade to 2 than to perform all the changes.

    Upgrading to 2 is pretty easy as long as the db was not modified. Keep in mind that any customizations made to the code/template will be lost and you will have to convert the template to work with 2.X.

    The work to convert the template is well worth what you will get. Converting to 2.X is like going from Windows 3.1 to Vista.

    I'm a 1.1.5b user and have decided not to migrate due to work load issues. My sites have fully SE friendly urls and individual meta tags for EVERY listing.

    You need more than just the htaccess file. Try a search as there is a thread with the htaccess file and all the changes that need to be made.

    As PbFlash says you DO need to do more than a few changes to the htaccess file.

    My meta tags are an addition to this, all I did was to add an extra field for each meta tag and complete that data when adding a new property. You find you have to be VERY inventive so not to keep using the same words etc..!
