I'm Currently using PMX 1.5 and enabled SEF. I noticed that when I'm reading a topic, then the URL doesn't show which board I'm in. Is it possible to include the forum board's title in the URL? Although this would make the URL longer, I believe that it would be useful since then the URL would include more information about the webpage.

E.g. mysite.tld/1/welcome-to-smf/    >>>   mysite.tld/general-discussion/1/welcome-to-smf/

It would also be convenient since it would allow a user to move up the forum linktree by simply removing the last bit from the URL.

E.g. mysite.tld/general-discussion/1/welcome-to-smf/   >>>   mysite.tld/general-discussion/1/welcome-to-smf/   >>>   mysite.tld/general-discussion/

I would also like to include "Community" or "forum" in the URL, so that the user will know that the link refers to a post in a forum.

E.g. mysite.tld/general-discussion/1/welcome-to-smf/   >>>   mysite.tld/forum/general-discussion/1/welcome-to-smf/

Is this possible, or will it require too much code changes?

Also, is the number "1" really necessary in the URL?

That is not possible until you write your own SEF engine ...

Ah well, I guess it's not so bad with the current URL's.

Not sure what you mean by that. I don't know the first thing about writing mods, nor do I even know what the SEF "engine" is. Would doing this be complicated?
