  • [Forum] any plans to support RDFa ?

    Nothing more to the question than that, really.
    Major search engines support it.
    Does vBulletin ?

    Haven't heard of it, wasn't even aware of it. Chances are in the short term no. If you can make a good enough suggestion as to why it should be included you might see it down the line.

      Seriously?

      This is huge, and you guys are ignoring the elephant in the room.

      RDFa is commonly used by search engines today to help include additional information about web pages in different formats in their results.

      For Vbulletin, it could be used to define the different pieces of data that make up a forum page:

      Username
      post content
      date
      thread rating
      location (city, state)

      How will the search engines incorporate it? Who knows, but wouldn't it be better for vBulletin to define how RDFa is used in forums, rather than be the follower who has to incorporate someone else's standards?

      Wake up people.

        Its in draft, and not a final state. So again, if you'd like something like this added to the product, you're going to want to make a suggestion in the tracker
