Hi @Asynaptic I’m subscribed to this thread.
I guess I was being slightly facetious with my previous comment.
However, I too have scoured the forums like you, and I was fed up of seeing flippant replies to a multiple enquiries about the same topic.
I love the WP community, but, for these types of reasons I employ a developer more or less full time these days, because I can’t rely on an open-source community to come up with answers in a set time frame.
A voting system/ survey is a great idea, but I have a busy life, and a family to support, so I can’t wait around forever until someone pushes this to the top of their to-do list. I’m for GTD and agile development, I’m not interested in trying to steer an oil tanker.
This permalink situation is a great example. I need this to work. I cannot go forward with the standard bbPress implementation. It goes right against the grain, ignores logic, intuition, as well as SEO and the user experience.
I am not prepared to wait 7 years to sort this out, so I will probably pay my guy to fix this. If he comes up with a good solution, then I’ll share it right back.
But…. I still do not appreciate the paternalistic attitude of some of the ‘elders’ here. It’s unnecessary and patronising.
For all the commno sense folk out there who are wondering why the mods etc are defending this ridiculous situation….
System justification theory (SJT) is a theory that proposes people have a motivation to defend and justify the status quo, even when it may be disadvantageous to certain people.
People have a psychological need to maintain stability and order in their lives. As such, they are motivated to see the status quo as good, legitimate, and desirable.
I’m with all the non-coders here. This url situation is nuts from a UX and SEO point of view.
Having built over 200 WordPress sites in the last few years, I’m really surprised to find that bbPress has these fundamental structural flaws when it comes to url organization.

Have we got any further with this?
