In reply to: SEO Meta Description for Forums and Topics
I know the Yoast SEO has many problems with BBpress. I wrote a small plugin to help Yoast SEO working better with BBPress.
This plugin improved the following problem with yoast wordpress seo in bbpress:
1, Canonical lost on single forum
2, Canonical lost on single topic page
3, Canonical lost on user profile page
4, Canonical lost on topic tag page
5, Meta title incorrect on user profile page
6, Meta title incorrect on topic tag
7, Meta description lost on topic archive
8, Meta description lost on user profile page
9, Meta description lost topic tag page
10, Meta description lost on single topic page
11, Meta description lost on single forum page
I know this is an old thread but if I install this plugin, would it automatically pull all the meta data (meta title & description) or would I have to manually write the titles and descriptions for each page?
TBH, right now I don’t have the budget to hire an SEO consultant. Plus, I’ve had bad experiences with them before. So I’d prefer if this is something that I could resolve on my own.
Let me know.
I’m looking for a forum software for my site, but none on the market seems to be satisfying!
It seems forum software has peaked with vBulletin 3.6, 12 or more years ago! How come nothing seems to beat a piece of software that is 12 years old?! Many of the top forums that use vBulletin 3.6 don’t want to upgrade, simply because there isn’t anything better, anywhere.
(here is an example of typical vB 3.6 forum: https://onlineacademy.com/)
My question/suggestion: Why can’t BBPress (or anyone else for that matter) match the design and functionalities and design of vBulletin of 12 years ago?
BBPress should do whatever it takes to reach that level, then we will be ready to pay!! There is a huge need out for a modern forum software! Plenty of people are stuck with their vB 3.6, simply because there isn’t anything better…
I know this is an old thread but were you able to find something better than vBulletin 3.6? I’m looking to start a new forum myself and I found this thread while researching for the best forum software. Every other forum out there uses the same software and they all look the same. I want to build something that functions differently and looks better.
Let me know!
