How to upgrade from 1.0x to 1.04

1. Set the new options in seo-board_options.php file.

Version 1.04 adds two new options in seo-board_options.php. They are related to rss/atom feeds. You can see the two additional options at the bottom of the 1.04 seo-board_options.php file.

Copy these lines from the new seo-board_options.php file to your seo-board_options.php:

//ADDED IN 1.04
//rss feed options
//exclude some forums from the rss/atom feeds
// = array (exclude_forum_id1, exclude_forum_id2...);
$feedexcludeforums = array();

//how many topics to include in the feeds
$feednumtopics = 10;

Customize these two additional values to your likings.
