Here is an example of how this can be implemented. I think that Xisto's forums should now be divided into different categories on different pages, for example like this:

 

 

http://forums.xisto.com/topic/149-science/

http://forums.xisto.com/topic/147-life/

http://forums.xisto.com/no_longer_exists/

 

etc.

 

It will be divided according to the categories with "**" next to it.

 

Here is a quick sketch I made in photoshop depicting something that might work as the forum home page. I think the decreased amount of links makes the search engine think that it's less spam-possible, but I'm not sure. I apologize for how ugly it looks but I had to rush a bit.

 

 

Obviously the actual verison won't be so stripped down and lack anything on the front page.

Yeah! I want to do this.. But this will take lot of time. And this will be implemented once I include all the categories and topics are setup on Xisto.This is exactly what I have in mind but I was thinking of a tree view of forums to help members navigate and post -Shree


Dooga

Haha, that's awesome! I'll be willing to help as much as I can! :lol:Also, you could use Ajax technology or just javascript hovering. It will save all the stuff that no one actually reads (like descriptions) and those things can be called by ajax at any time, without prefetching it or grabbing it off the server when it's not needed and wasting bandwidth.


OpaQue

No Ajax by any chance. Its hated by Search Engines


Dooga

Ah! Gotcha! :lol:I'm not that good with SEO ... only complaining about designs lol
