the admin link can be brought to life by adding this:
RewriteRule ^bb-admin/$ – [L]
before this line:
RewriteRule ^([^.]+)/([^.]+)/page/([0-9]+)/?$ topic.php?id=$2&page=$3 [L,QSA]
and to resurrect login, remove or comment out the line:
RewriteRule ^bb-login.php$ index.php
i don’t know why its there. perhaps its for something important that i don’t get.
