Automatic URL title editing.

I posted a link to a thread in a Wanted thread and it "sucked in" the entire title of the thread. Looks stupid - especially with the whole " - Great Lakes 4x4. The largest offroad forum in the Midwest" tacked onto it.


Edit: It mangled this one, too.

Something else to keep in mind...


I just noticed that JF has been doing something with this as well. Instead of a t=xxxxxx to identify the thread in the address bar, they are now using words from the thread title. Based on some of the language used here, that could really suck for the workplace environment even if the thread itself is SFW.

Example:

With the way JF is using vBulletin features now, if I were to create a thread in JF's General Discussion Forum titled "Clarkstoncracker is a dick", the URL to that thread would then be "http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f7/clarkstoncracker-is-a-dick-xxxxxx/" (with the x's being the thread number).

If someone at work were to view that thread, they will have just visited a URL containing the word "dick" and will most likely now become a "person of interest" within the IT Department.

If you are considering implementing whatever vBulletin update they did, please keep this in mind.

Ok. Yeah, they just implemented http://www.vbseo.com/

It has more weight with google with urls being subject lines, but I'm not a fan of it.
