Well, this is what they have documented:

http://www.yabbforum.com/codex/YaBB.pl?num=1191988956

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
how to setup permalinks

create a .htaccess file with the following line in it.

Code Select All

RedirectMatchUrl ^/virtual_url/(.*)$
http://yourdomain.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?



virtual_url is the path part you name in the permalink settings eg.
"messages"
Keep in mind that this path part is really virtual and should not be an
existing folder inside your webspace !!!

upload this .htaccess file in your www root on the server

The following translation is now made for you

http://yourdomain.com/cgi-bin/yabb2/YaBB.pl?num=1196612365

gets translated in a permalink looking like:

http://yourdomain.com/messages/2007/12/02/boardname/1196612365



if the user's server does not implement the RedirectMatchUrl Apache
directive. For those that need something on a nix machine that doesn't
produce a 500 Internal Error, they might want to give this a try:


Code Select All

RewriteEngine On
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} topics/(.*)/([^/]+\.[^/])
RewriteRule ^topics/([0-9]+)/([0-9]+)/([0-9]+)/([^/]+)/(.+)$
http://mydomain.com/$5 [L]

RewriteRule ^topics/(.+)/(.+)$ http://mydomain.com//YaBB.pl?num=$2
[L]

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

You tell me what that means.
