This sh404sef plugin was written for the popular Codingfish Discussions component version 1.5 which runs under Joomla! 2.5.
Developed for our own internal usage, it might prove popular with others in the wider Joomla community.
Known to run using Discussions 1.6.1 (the last release) we have now ceased support for this plugin, since we no longer use this as our forum component.
This is a true sh404sef plugin and is supplied with configuration options accessible from the Joomla Plug-in Manager of the 'sh404sefextplugins' type.
This plugin is supplied free of charge without any implied warenty.
We have supplied a German translation (compliments of Google Translate) as a starting point for any German sites. Corrections and any other translations anyone would like to contribute would be gratefully received.
To use it:
1. Install and activate sh404sef 3.4.x component for Joomla 2.5
2. Install this downloaded plugin using the normal Joomla installer.
3. Navigate to the Extensions -> Plugins.
4. Choose 'sh404sefextplugins in the 'select type' filter.
5. Choose the 'sh404sef - Codingfish Discussions component sh404sef support plugin' plugin.
6. Select options and set your desired settings.
7. Enable the plugin.
8. Perforn an export of the URL entries for the com_discussions component which you may use to restore if you decide to remove the plugin later.
8. Purge sh404sef urls for the discussions component.
(Optional if links doesn't refresh or if you wish to start anew with SEF URLs for the Discussions component. Note that this may or may not be desirable!)
We hope that you find this plugin useful.
