@phenomlab i feel, for any website SEO is mandatory that’s the reason we did not go away from WordPress.
when it comes to flarum I am so much stressed, flarum just indexed 800 unwanted sub-pages with the same page title which is a big SEO mistake. so I had to commission this extension to fix the canonical URL issue. i do not bother sponsoring but, it takes a huge learning curve to find the problem and wait for devs to make an extension to solve the issues.
if we ask the flarum team for SEO support they say it’s not part of the core and it’s the extension job. and no one is ready to fix SEO problems. (I’ve contacted the SEO author too for few SEO fixes but looks like he is experiencing family problems and he will not be available for the next 2-3months for sure.) in this pandemic situation, we can not demand anything from anyone … everyone is facing problems.
all we can do is go forward with what is ready! (nodeBB)
when it comes to nodeBB or Wordpress they provide basic SEO support.
i understand i can not expect too much from a newborn baby (flarum) but hope they will soon start provide basic SEO support out of the box.
The flarum default them is something
now I am fully into flarum and i can not switch. i am so jealous of you guys for switching to node BB
+++ cloudways do not support nodeBB (what kind of people they are? )
hope flarum eventually grows and dominate the forum world.
