Deep integration? Google might not be indexing your forum pages
[Opening a new thread with a more descriptive title. The old one was here: http://bbpress.org/forums/topic/help-404-error-but-page-displays
I have bbPress 1.0.2 and WPMU 2.8.4a with deep integration. Forum pages load fine in the browser, but they have a 404 status in the header, which causes a googlebot crawl error. If you have deep integration, this might be true for you too. You can use Firebug or http://web-sniffer.net/ to check.
I have posted my understanding of the problem and a workaround on the WPMU forums: http://mu.wordpress.org/forums/topic/14425?replies=1#post-83354
I think this issue will stop Google (and other search engines) from indexing your forum pages. So if you are using deep integration it might be a good idea to watch for a patch.
Use my little workaround at at your own risk.
