Does anyone have any instructions on how to make the URL's much more SEO and human friendly?

Consider this example URL in my testing forum...

http://example.com/Forum...ing-live-but-need-advice 

Ideally, I'd like to get rid of /g/posts/m/3 since it doesn't at all do anything for the forum visitors or search engines. Is this possible?

Am I the only person that would like to do this? This is the only true deal-breaker for me. The current URL format is not at all helpful for SEO, or human readability.

I'm not using DNN, but this is what my URL's look like.
You can do quite a bit with the URL Rewriter, I believe.

Thanks for the reply, but I don't see anything specific in how the URL rewriting works in the DNN version of this solution. All I've found so far is how to change the encoding of the URL, not the formatting of it.

I've found this other similar thread, but it seems that maybe there's a bug when used in DNN 8.xx?

I've added the following, but the URLs don't change.

    <add key="YAF.URLRewritingMode" value="" />
	<add key="YAF.EnableURLRewriting" value="true" />
	<add key="YAF.UrlRewritingFormat" value="advanced" />

Is there anyone else here? Anyone else able to confirm my suspicions that this is a bug?

I'm not sure if that is possible really the querystrings are needed for yaf.

A DNN-based URL provider should be able to take care of that for you.
