Shorter Topic URLs

Post by SinbadEV » 18 May 2011, 14:34

[code]http://springrts.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=26056[/code]

links to a topic... would be awesome if we used an url rewriter/redirect scripty thing to allow:

[code]http://springrts.com/t26056[/code]

to facilitate twitter promotion of release topics.

I want to know where I go before clicking links. Also they look a bit fishy.

I tend to use url shortners for this kind of thing... but I want to embed the "springrts.com" part in the user's subconscious.

apparently all one would need to do is to Put the something like the following code in a file named .htaccess in the root:

Code: Select all

RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule /t([0-9]+) /phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=$1
