flexibreak and SEF

Is there a way to make the output of the flexibreak plugin search engine friendly? I need to use the reload version and it's output now is
.../category/article-title?showall=&start=1
but I want the output to be something like:
.../category/article-title/page-1
Best regards

Hello

Joomla 1.5 did not have SEF URL for these

- does J2.5 have ? (sure i can test if it has, just asking to save some time)
if so maybe we will add to our flexibreak plugin too

Would it be possible to add this for Joomla 1.5 at all?
Best Regards

Hello

you are talking about a J1.5 site ?

currently there is no plan to release for J1.5 a newer version, maybe a beta with little support for it

the problem is the following:
We need to lower our bounce rate. Users stay on the page for about 2-3 minutes which shows that they read the article but they don't click on any links to view other pages. So we tried to break the articles into multiple pages via pagebreak plugin but this didn't seem to work as google seems to treat all pages with the same url and ?start=x as one page.
I did disable the canonical tag for these articles too and I also set the "showall=2" link to nofollow. but this didn't help too.
Our boss doesn't want to migrate to Joomla 2.5 if the bounce rate isn't fixed before. (He'd rather quit the project then).
So what I need is something like a path that allows sef for the pagebreak plugin (flexibreak or content/plg_bagebreak)

hello

but FLEXIcontent flexibreak is already compatible with SEF links and in fact it does it like this:
(both J1.5 and J2.5)

http://flexicontent.org/downloads/latest-version.html#LatestChangesv212

http://flexicontent.org/downloads/latest-version.html#LatestChangesv211

it uses anchors (so you can and you should leave the canonical turned on)

see this article:
http://flexicontent.org/downloads/latest-version.html

You mean the "All pages::scroll" Version? But this one won't break my article into different pages, it'll just insert anchors to my "View all-Version" and links to them.
The "Active Page::Instantly" version is great but it's Javascript links and I think google won't treat these as indivitual pages too.
I think the only sensible version (in my case) would be the "Active page::Reload" version but this inserts the "?showall=&start=1" parameter to my url instead of /page1 or /page2 etc so that Google could treat every page as an indivdual one.
To test this, I installed the latest Flexicontent version (2.1.1 r1793) on our testserver.

yes google indexes these but it does not treat them as individual pages



-- i think best choice is using the reload option and Google will both
a. index these and
b. treat them as separate pages
