Tetra-WebBBS Support Forum
: Still wondering how multiple boards will work... But I promise to
: test my own installation afterwards! :-)
: - Don't you have requests from users wanting some kind of
: sub-categories in one forum, usually called "boards"
: in more recent BBS? Which would probably be easier to set up as
: separate boards linked together via the quickinfo solution?
Well ..... probably, but priorities of what is coded are:
- what I need for myself
- what my teammate needs
- what those need who booked for ongoing maintenance
- what people are willing to sponsor
- the rest
None of the people requeting such things is either #2 or #3. - None is willing to sponsor either.
It's as simple as this
: I can see some active WebBBS forums around, with huge lists of
: messages on their index page (all the more so if their default
: view is threaded), and cannot help myself thinking that messages
: would be better organized in sub-categories...
Why do you think these are sub-categories? They are no categories, actually they are different boards.
But that all a question of how one looks at things.
One "very" important advantage of the way with multiple boards is that you can put these boards in folders of their own, or name the entry scripts like you need it. - I'm aware of several people who like this option from the viewpoint of SEO. - Which indeed is important somehow. It's not by chance the URL of this board has the terms 'forum' and 'WebBBS' on the path. - And probably if I had a site dealing with music I would probably like URLs like
'domain.com/classic/Mozart/(index.cgi)' much more than '/forum/board.pl?forumid=100'
I need the URL thingy like many others
: - If one sets up several forums on a site, can the
: registration/login process be done only once for some forums
: that would concern the same users but on different subjects or
: different ways of working? These forums would point to the same
: users' files?...
: And can some other forum need a separate registration, or at least
: different permissions, being targeted at fewer authorized
Without knowing the details: basically yes.
