Have you ever seen a commercial site with a ton of links in the bottom of their pages?.. like a list of their forums, or a complete navigation on a plain listing.
This place: BabyCenter | Homepage – Pregnancy, Baby, Toddler, Kids is a good example of the usage the Channels can give… go in the bottom of the page, you see the entire navigation of the site.. (ok, it’s a parenting site, so?!)
Here is what we have in store for that kind of navigation:
1- we have a « whole page version », where you navigate in one shot instead of going thru the whole forum sub-forums… other screenshots available in the attached thumbnails!
2- a « bottom of page » navigation, a list of all the channels, without any detail. As you can see, in the real bottom, you have the RSS links provided by vbSEO for guests/web crawlers. Our engine is way more attractive, and will tease the readers who are in the bottom of a page!
(you can see this in the bottom of this place too!)
Permissions to view forums is applied, so you do not see a forum you have no right to see.
No query is displayed on a vBulletin default page, as the forumcache is stored everywhere!
