Hello! Yes! It will be changed, as said from long time, and as posted before:
I would like to provide also an option to choose between several preloaders for the iframe, and the possibility to switch the "infamous" w3 var with something else that anybody can exchange with something that may more like.
this not change nothing: the iframe joke, is totally SEO as phpBB is, spiders just see phpBB real urls, they are TOTALLY EXCLUDED by the iframe joke, and you do not need to take care about this.
I can explain again the thing, but it has been explained elsewhere for times now and i'm sorry to not be explaining in details again.
A stupid example, try to search this on google:
forums is in effect the real folder/url where this forum is installed. This spiders see.
Look links that are pointing to real phpBB urls, while if you click into, you're redirected to iframed forum ... until you have js active on browser!
is just a wp black page in wp, and spiders just see this, a blank page with nothing inside, except an iframe that will point ever, to phpBB index page.
May something on this site axew3.com under /forum/ has been indexed in the past, because the workaround i've long time think to, was still not applied.
Widgets and shortcodes links: again, point your mouse over and stop:
look on browser bottom/left the appearing url: the real phpBB url. Now Click. You're redirected to iframed.
The above you mention, so, remain like a cosmetic thing that is an absolute to add. I fully agree with!
This time i will be over, not like last year, more often to improve the plugin, rebuilding code, and moving it to the next step.
I'm sorry for last bug about added users into phpBB with date 1 1 1970, fixed yesterday, for which i will provide a more fix on next version, to setup correctly the registration date for these "in the while the bug was on since 2.0.5" eventual registered phpBB users, in case someone not able to do it manually (of course, it should not be a task of an user that just want a working plugin, and not become crazy on fixing issue it may cause). I will just provide a button option, into wp_w3all tasks page.
Together with this requirement about iframe for long time scheduled and never applied. And more!
In the while, please report if any bug, that so will be immediately resolved
