PHPKB Knowledge Base Software offers Search Engine Friendly URLs (Static URLs) for dynamic knowledge base articles and categories.

Administrator can turn on/off this feature of "SEO Friendly Links" from the "Manage Settings" page in the PHPKB Admin Control Panel. So, With this feature in place you can feel safe about the knowledgebase articles getting indexed by search engines.

So, Instead of having URLs like

http://www.kbdemo.com/article.php?id=185

Now, PHPKB will display them as

http://www.kbdemo.com/article/sample-article-185.html

Static URLs are known to be better than Dynamic URLs for a number of reasons:

  1. Static URLs typically rank better in search engines.
  2. Search engines are known to index the content of dynamic pages much more slowly than that of static pages.
  3. Static URLs look friendlier to end users.

Requirements for this Feature

  • Apache Web Server with mod_rewrite() installed
  • .htaccess file support
