Comment on Stallion SEO Theme Layout Options by Mark.
I would like to report that the Stallion theme v7 is very compatible with bbPress. I was having trouble with bbPress before. I do not know if it is the new v7 code or bbPress has evolved, but I have tested this on a test site and found no issues.
Ironically, after a lot of testing, I wonder if I will bbPress as I noticed the code of bbPress is only modestly SEO-ed. Pemalinks and things like breadcrumbs are fine, but a lot of no-follows.
So my point and the good news is, if anyone wants to add a forum to their Stallion theme powered website if is possible. Just use bbPress. I might have a little button that says something like ‘ask me anything’ which brings people to a bbPress forum.
Yet, as we have discussed here before, nothing beats the WordPress comment system with no registration and the ability to leave comments that have the super comment function. It makes things like forums and even social networking a little passé if you are keen on SEO.
I would rather have people dialogue-ing and communicating on my website rather than a private message systems via a social network, that does not create much content that other people can read or react to, like a blog.
Nor a Forum that has a lot of user content which is low quality with half sentence replies and a lot of emoticons .
The best and something I have been trying to conceptualize is using WP as Stallion exists to have people use it like a forum and social network without loading up on alien (alien to Stallion) plugins and code not needed.
I am almost at this point but not sure yet how it will come together, yet. I think Stallion comments with Gravatar widget, super comments, image rich widgets like Stallion posts widget, great layout options and a little imagination about the structure and maybe I think I can make it work.
