The 1.6 Documentation is no longer maintained and some information may be outdated.

The MyBB 1.6 series reached end of life on October 1, 2015.

This means there will be no more security or maintenance releases for these series and forums running these versions of MyBB may be at risk of unfixed security issues. All administrators are strongly encouraged to upgrade their forums to the latest release of MyBB as soon as possible.

Search Engine Friendly URLs allow certain search engines to index more of your site, because they aren't confused with all the "weird" signs in a dynamic URL. These signs include & , ? marks , % signs and = signs. MyBB 1.4 supports SEF URLs which can be enabled from with the Admin Control Panel, and makes your URLs static (easier to index).

  1. Make sure your server supports Mod Rewrite
  2. Rename htaccess.txt to .htaccess
  3. Login to your Admin Control Panel
  4. Select the Configuration tab
  5. Click Server and Optimization Options
  6. Make Sure Enable search engine friendly URLs? is set to either Automatic Detection or enabled

This will make your URLs automatically change to the transformed SEF URLs.
