Thanks will give this a try.
Also considering having the WP site in an iframe on my NBB homepage, then styling both to match. However, with this option, I'm not sure how best to setup SSO. Is there a way to use NBB as Login, Registration and Profile and pass the info to WP. ie using NBB as the AUTH provider?
Keeping in mind that this is a machine run test, you must take the results with a grain of salt.
I'm looking at this from an seo perspective, I agree that Nodebb is "zippy" but if Google are going to be using this tool (or something similar) to rank Nodebb forums, then the results are highly relevant.
What's the point in having a cool looking forum with no members or visitors?
NodeBB is quite zippy on my phone
It's also zippy on my iPhone & iPad and my daughters Android tablet and Windows phone.
