By the way have the site configured from an end user perspective it doesn't seem as if there would be. The counters still make me curious though.. I'm not sure why they would register another page before there really was one. Without having ever really testing it I've noticed that the vbadvanced landing page will often display that there are say 3 pages of a topic yet when going to the actual forumdisplay that there are only 2

I don't think that vbadvanced changes the way that counters work though, something like that is probably outside of my scope.. but from dealing with multiple forums on vbulletin that characteristically have multiple page threads this seems to be the only one with the counter/page issue.. I wonder if it's a plugin that's run errant

To me that's inefficient, not to mention that web crawlers will not follow javascript (which is how the dropdowns are created/displayed). So it takes it following different links for the crawlers to get back to the actual home page and forum groupings to scour all content efficiently. To the average user that won't change much (unless you're like me and don't like dropdowns, or at least longer ones). But as far as search engine optimization, the higher up the page the better.. but if it's not able to be crawled, not so good.
got any recommendations for something else to use?

Re: Board is screwy??

I guess if you complain you should be able to present an alternative right? I'd personally probably just use a straight link to the forum home. I mean there may be some members who hop to one of the subforums first but idk.. maybe that'd be worth polling or looking at analytics for where people tend to end up within the forums coming straight from the home page, though I'm not sure if analytics shows a non-traditional link jump, that I'd have to look into.

I was going to say just put it in a vbadv module but that'd take up real estate from the headlines, polls, etc so that's probably not a good idea.

Re: Board is screwy??

I know javascript isn't efficient but I went with functionality over SEO. Still, most of the drop-down options aren't that important and can be weeded out. Something to think about.

I'm also big on functionality and user friendliness over SEO, if SEO imparts itself no doubt

I would think that the menus are used minimally and a better context menu could probably take the place of those boxes

obviously not a huge concern as it won't change membership any

You're probably right, let me know what you think of the new menu

Re: Board is screwy??

I didn't wanna post a brand new thread so I'm bumping this.

I started a topic in debating with the enemy and for some reason none of the debating with the enemy threads show up in the Off Topic box on the main page. Like how when you create a new thread, it bumps up to the top of the off topic box? Yeah. Not happening. Didn't know what was up.

I removed that forum from showing up on the main page. Figured it was better than removing it altogether, which was something I was considering.

lol could you move my thread to the parking lot then? Cuz I'm interested in what everyone has to say, but I'm afraid no one will see it. :/

Exclamation Re: Board is screwy??

What the hell is up with the page today?!?!?!

It looks like a little kid went nuts with his crayons.


Edit: and my hangover just subsided for a few seconds - just long enough for me to remember what day it is.

The mods told me to keep it a secret, but they've entered into a partnership with ExtremeSkins that requires us to use the official ES colors and a similar layout. I for one welcome our new insider overlords.
