    Hi RootShell!

    I'm glad you like it Also - if your English isn't too good - just set your default language in User CP, and start writing in your native language - at the end this mod is about multi language communities

    About your request this is good idea and it is added in TODO list. Also we see some issues with translation of this, but we will do our best to support it

    Sorry I wasn't precious. "It is available" was a comment about waiting for 3.x
    Translations of categories are not supported yet. We are still during consideration of how to do this without translations changes risk.

    For threads there is no issue, because you have identifier at the begging, so if happens that Google made better translation, then already indexed URL will just have 301 redirect and Google will re-index it without loosing position.

    For categories (sub-forums) there is an issue, because many forums do not have identifier before category in URL, so if translation will change to better one then old one will be just broken. And you are not allowed to just keep translations for categories forever - Google allows to cache translations only for 15 days.

    So we have great challenge here We will work on it and it can take some time for us to find safe way like in case of threads titles. We have some ideas right now, so you can consider this as in progress

    We still will have to make closer investigation in this area, but already have some solution planned. Not to gentle, so we like to discus it.

    Right now we are planning to make 2 strategies of categories translation. So you will be able to choose preferred one.

    1st - the easy one - translation will be automatic and if after cache cleaning appears that translation was changed, then simply you will get 301 redirection and user will be still able to read the point. This will also allow to handle appropriately indexing issues thanks to 301 (if ever happens). But to be this available your URL pattern will have to include category (sub-forum) id in URL (right now many forums includes id only for posts).

    2nd - harder one, but will work for forums which don't have in URL pattern id for categories (sub-forums) and don't want to change it (SEO issues). In this strategy you will have to manually set each translation for each category (sub-forum) in forum configuration. Set it and leave it, cause any changes will finish with old links being broken (just like it is right now if you change forum name - so it is not an issue). We simply cannot do this automatically because of Google TOS - Google results cannot be cached more than 15 days. And those translations must be kept for lifetime. It can be some work to it manually. Each sub-forum multiply by number of available languages on your forum, but you set it once and leave it. You just have to find out from where get the translations - in Internet you can find many free translation services available by html form. Maybe even Google translations taken from their page (not by AJAX or CURL API) can be used to store it manually (need to check).

    This is our idea. And at this moment, we are still not sure about all possible issues, but we would like to know what our users think about it

    I prefer option 1.

    But the best thing would be to give the 2 options and already after one chooses.

    greetings.

    I am very interested in 2nd - because its very good seo to have important keywords in the "bottom folder" domain.com/bottom folder/rest ...

    Any news on this?

    Our actual priority is vBET4.x for vB4 and we are working about it now. We will take care about critical issues if such will come in vBET3.x and this is all what is planned before 4.x release.

    After 4.x release we will develop booth lines 3.x and 4.x, and then we will add new functionalities.
