How To: SEO Friendly Announcements links

Recommended Posts

Thanks to jasonBV in thread http://forum.whmcs.com/showthread.php?t=7886


I developed a way of makeing the announcements seo friendly as well as the knowledgebase links.


Add this to your .htaccess file

note: if you dont already have your rewrite engine "on" then add a RewriteEngine On above this line:

RewriteRule ^announcements_([0-9]+)_[a-z0-9_-]+\.html$ /announcements.php?id=$1 [L,NC]


Then Add this to your announcements.tpl file where your article list link is

<td class="articlelist"><a href="/announcements_{$announcement.id}_{$announcement.title|regex_replace:"/ /":"_"|regex_replace:"/[\?\'\.\,\!]/":""}.html">


and thats it!


If your having trouble finding the area in your announcements.tpl file you must replace, its on or around line 16 and looks like:

<td class="articlelist"><a href="{$smarty.server.PHP_SELF}?id={$announcement.id}">


Just follow this pattern to do all your other pages as well.


- Cheers
