    The changes need to be made to the files of a Persona theme, found the directory like this:


    I was try to do this on my forum and I did it, this is what you need to do:


    You need edit 2 files - topic.tpl and post.tpl

    /node_modules/nodebb-theme-persona/templates/topic.tpl /node_modules/nodebb-theme-persona/templates/partials/topic/post.tpl Copy and remove this code in the topic.tpl <div class="tags tag-list inline-block hidden-xs"> <!-- IMPORT partials/topic/tags.tpl --> </div> Paste this in the post.tpl after {posts.content}

    <div class="content" component="post/content" itemprop="text">

    <div class="tags tag-list inline-block hidden-xs"> <!-- IMPORT partials/topic/tags.tpl --> </div>


    Now run the command to build Nodebb and that's it, ready.


    (note that when the screen size is a mobile phone the tag is not even displayed in the post/header.)

    Yes, you right. To show tags on mobile you need remove hidden-xs in the div class.

    <div class="tags tag-list inline-block"> <!-- IMPORT partials/topic/tags.tpl --> </div>

    You can use category tag whitelist for #1 and #3. It is configured on a category basis and users can only use those tags.

    Whether Google would prefer it one way or another, we can only guess. An entire snake oil industry is built around optimising sites for high search rankings, but in the end, the biggest contributor to your ranking is whether or not you have fresh, user-generated content...

    Frankly, a forum is hands-down the best way to expose and incentivise user-generated content for indexing. Everything else (meta tags, URL structure, etc) is just icing on the cake.

    Yeah. We need to have an "SEO Expert" (tm) have a look at what we're doing and make sure we're on track. Other than that as @a_5mith alluded earlier we've made everything so modular that I would imagine anything we need to change won't take THAT much work to accomplish.
