  • Where is the friendly url settings in Options?

    As described in here: https://www.vbulletin.com/docs/html/...ofriendly_urls

    I'm unable to find it.

    Those options are irrelevant in vBulletin 5. All URLs are already "Friendly" out of the box. That page you're looking at is not a vBulletin 5.X documentation page. It is a vBulletin 4 version page. You can tell this because the breadcrumb display is broken and there is no navigation in the left column.

    Here is the proper vBulletin 5 Manual - https://www.vbulletin.com/docs/html?...rsion=50304601

    You can see the most up to date settings (built off of 5.4.0) in my personal documentation project here: http://vb5support.com/admin_control_...ttings/options

        Itís a search URL and thatís the format they use. There is currently no way to change this.

          In case of time take to load a page is there any difference in CPU/DB load when I try to load a tag URL or a forum url:

            Temporary search URLs, shouldn't be indexed anyway. Even if it is, the options in vBulletin 4 came out of the need to index dynamic URLs which the search engines had a problem with. That is up until 2010 or so. Today, they have no problems indexing any URLs even dynamic URLs or those created by javascript. Things are different now. Even having keywords in your URL isn't very important these days. People abused it and the search engines discount them or even disregard them in ranking algorithms.

            Friendly URLs don't help people. They never did. People don't remember URLs. If they need to follow a discussion they will subscribe to it or bookmark it.

              If anything, the first URL would use more CPU resources as the system figures out the route and builds the appropriate page. The server has to convert all those channels into variables to find the proper page. This also requires database queries.

              In the second URL, it has the page (search) and the variables to feed the system already. It can just feed the variables to the appropriate classes.
