that did not work, also when i put the rewrite rule in it caused the entire forum to go to error page so i took it out i noticed i have other rewrite rules in there maybe they conflict as I run wordpress on the front root.
I had this before a few years ago and it worked well not sure if the rules are still in there. Here is what is in my htaccess
If you receive an error when adding our rewrite rules, you should consult your systems administrator to assist with this issue, as the rewrite rules are required for DBSEO to function. Without them, nothing this mod does will work for you.
