is NodeBB "rendering-and-writing" the "ajaxified" pages for the crawlers to read?
@bentael -- no way, I made the decision early on not to do this because it is a drain on resources (how much, I did not test, as the alternatives were enticing enough)
Every link on NodeBB is accessible by direct link, and if you try viewing the source, you'll see the page content in <noscript> tags. I have heard arguments for and against this approach, but as we are being crawled properly by Google, it seems to be working just fine 🙂
Always open to suggestions for improvements, of course!
This is also the approach that Discourse has taken, btw.
