    I'm sorry, but all of them are fully functional for me.


    The only exception is the link for paid subscriptions, which is supposed to return an error if the module is disabled (why would you click on it anyway),

  • I think it needs be made more clear to people about using the rewrite rules.


    Most people are not going to know that an htaccess file with the rewrites needs be put in ROOT folder where the framework is install, and also one put in each APP folder used as well (for each app like forum and gallery) to use rewrites. WBB 4.1 never needed you to put an htaccess file anywhere else except in the root folder where the framework is installed including rewrites in it for each app used.


    That has changed with WBB Suite 3 and the apps used with it, and there is no clear documentation about how to setup things with it using rewrite rules.

  • How about a popup explaining that and having the .htaccess / nginx configuration in code boxes upon click on that link?

  • Nothing has changes when it comes to URL rewrite rules, it still works exactly the same as with WBB 4.1

    With WBB 4.1 you could put all the rewrite APP rules for each app in the same htaccess file dropped in root (where the framework is installed) and it would cover all the apps using rewrites. That didn't work when I tried doing it with Beta 1 to cover forum (same rules as used with WBB 4.1) to cover each app also - and instead had to drop another htaccess file in forum APP folder to get rewrites working with it.


    The htaccess file in Root would only work covering the framework and article system with it. Didn't work once you added some forum topics, the links to topics are broken (even with rewrite rule added to cover forum) used in the htaccess dropped in root

  • Yes, that is the same on my server. My WBB 4.1 Installation works with one .htaccess, my WBB 5 Installations needs as many as i got apps. (Same webserver, both are on root of domain, exactly the same configuration)

  • Yep. I have to use this in ROOT folder


    Apache Configuration
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
        RewriteEngine On
        
        RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
        RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
        RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.php?$1 [L,QSA]
    </IfModule>

    And then for every APP installed needed to drop another htaccess file in the APP folder (forum folder) with exact same code also.


    Adding the extra rewrite rules for Forum, Blog, etc - to the htaccess file in ROOT doesn't work same way it does with WBB 4.1 to cover the extra APPS installed using rewrites

  • For me it does work with the following.

    Same file as in WBB 4.1


    Windows 10


    Chrome Version 54.0.2840.71

    In case you have more than one application installation, you must repeat the instructions below for each application.

    The code above is not supposed to cover apps installed in other directories, as it would cause the directory path to be added to the location parameter passed to index.php and that is just plain wrong.


    Edit: The file provided by duplicate exodus works too, as it provides separate handlers per directory.

  • Doing that didn't work for me. Have you tried added some forum topics yet though and visiting the links? And not just visiting the main forum page link

    But what he posted is what I did also with WBB 4.1 and it worked covering all the apps using 1 htaccess file in root


    I tried this with Beta 1 coming with just forum placed in ROOT (didn't work)


    Doing that again for WBB Suite doesn't work. Not when you add some forum topics and try to visit the links leading to them. Maybe duplicate exodus has not actually added any forum topics yet testing it to work?

    The code provided by duplicate exodus would work if placed in the root, because it provides separate instructions for each directory. It is essentially the same as tossing a separate .htaccess into each directory containing the code provided by you.


    Could it be that your memory is betraying you here? ;)

  • Could it be that your memory is betraying you here?

    Nope, it didn't work with Beta 1 for me. I had to place two different htaccess files in both ROOT and in Forum folder with this in each one.


    Apache Configuration
    <IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
        RewriteEngine On
        
        RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
        RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
        RewriteRule ^(.*)$ index.php?$1 [L,QSA]
    </IfModule>


    I actually posted about it here before on the forum somewhere "at time" about it not working, and was told to do that instead - which got it working for forum.

    One last attempt on this:

    • The code posted by you will only deal with the app installed in the directory it was placed into.
    • It does not support URL rewriting for apps installed in sub-directories, basically because it assumes all URLs to be relative to the directory it resides it.
    • Placing the code in a separate .htaccess in each app directory does work

    Placing it in the root does not cover other apps, never did and never will, that is technically impossible. If you think this was how it worked back when you were running WBB 4.1: I'm sorry, but again your memory fools you.
