Ultimate Seo Urls 5 by FWR Media

New - Modern - More Efficient - Faster - Compatible - Less Queries

Author: Robert Fisher - www.fwrmedia.co.uk
Thanks to the beta testers:
Tom Hodges-Hoyland, Jan Zonjee, toyicebear, GLCustoms

Requirements:
Server: *nix or Windows/IIS

PHP requirements:
Version: 5.2.0+ (actually 5.1.3+ I believe at time of launch)
Zlib
filter_var
SPL (Standard PHP Library)

Traditional Rewrite URIs require:
*nix server (Windows/IIS does not have mod_rewrite)
mod_rewrite (as part of the apache build)
AllowOveride All (php.ini setting)

Compatibility:
MySQL 5 (Strict Trans Tables)
Traditional rewrite uris (*nix) produce exactly the same uris as the old 2 series (assuming the same settings)
The above means that should you upgrade from 2 series you don't have to worry about changed links

Installation difficulty:
There are only eight small changes to just seven files so this is easy and quick. (2 minute "drop on top" install for devs/testers)
Simple database installer.

Upgrade from old series 2 seo urls:
Upgrade instructions included.
Removal script for old database entries.
Simple database installer.

New:
Works on Windows/IIS (BETA at time of launch due to lack of extensive testing)
Two seo uri choices .. standard and rewrite .. Windows/IIS can only use standard
error free - error_reporting(E_ALL | E_STRICT)
Modular design
Plug in modules for contributions
Simple database installer
Inbuilt uri validation
301 redirects
Custom 404 Page not found
Zero queries or database use after cache fully loaded
Cache saving is sequential rather than one big DB hit
Admin selectable debug output
File (array) based character conversion (BETA at time of launch)
Simple cache life in admin based on "cache days"
Extensive security measures to safeguard the querystring
Series 2 database removal tool
Ability to switch between uri types via admin without changing any code as below:
On: standard seo uris - rewrite seo uris
Off: standard osC uris - experimental search engine safe uris
