Light, simple, SEO compatible forum software Does one exist? Web_Savvy msg:3460726 8:56 pm on Sep 25, 2007 (gmt 0) From the last post of Library thread: [ [ ...] ] webmasterworld.com
Maybe it's time for a "lite" forum version that's simple and SEO compatible.
Does one exist now? If not, what would be the closest alternative?

The closest I've run across is "minibb"; It allows for at least somewhat search engine friendly URLs via mod_rewrite and, judging by the demo forum does a halfway decent job with page titles & descriptions.
I haven't done an installation of it for some time, but I recall that it is relatively easy to "skin" via the stylesheet once the class names are accounted for.

At one point, Discusware was quite simple, and SEO-able with a few minor tweaks. They have since changed versions, though, and I can't speak to how well they do. Web_Savvy msg:3463447 4:53 am on Sep 28, 2007 (gmt 0)
Thanks for the suggestions Edouard_H and rogerd.
I guess we'll try both of these out.
In the meanwhile, any further suggestions please, anybody?
Lastly, I wonder what software does WebmasterWorld use? Is it a third-party affair or has Brett rolled his own here?
