There's a big risk when PrettyURL users switch to PMX that they will definitely lose the rankings on Google.... which makes it uninteresting for prettyurls users to switch to PMxSEF. When reversing you get the same problem (PMxSEF -> PrettyURLs).
PortaMxSEF is a additional module that can enabled or not, so nobody MUST use it.
Prettyurl ist not the best (imho) because this mod need many changes ans the SMF sources, a very complexe .htaccess and additional database tables & queries.
SimpleSEF is good and fast, but have a lot of bugs and the comma separated url's are not the best.
And .. both can't convert portamx specific urls to a SEO format...
So last night we have rewritten PortaMxSEF, so the created url's are near to Prettyurl, but without any /?action=xyz , we convert ALL token
QuoteThe best way for you (IMO!) is to have contact with the authors of SimpleSEF and PrettyURLs and make something which is interchangeable or at least compatible.
That is't possible, any of the mod's follow a other way .. there is no consense.
SimpleSEF is very slow supported, know bugs are not fixed, and Prettyrls make to many changes on SMF .. that is not our way.
QuoteCreating your own SEF will put you on an island which is definitely uninteresting for you and PMX.
As I say .. it's a additional module and can used or not. We use this .. of course
QuoteBut you can also create your own system and let the users decide which one they use. Users
need to must be informed that they can't switch to an other SEF mod when they used PMxSEF.
Not true .. as I say .. We do not modify any in SMF or modify the existing url permanently. The url converting is do on the fly .. runtime. Of course .. if you post a internal link in a topic, these do not work on a other mod.
We can convert links from SimpleSEF (simple format) to PortaMxSEF ...
