I'm wondering if the new change appearance feature is adding to my issues. Within that feature Classic topics are set to 20 per page, but due to other changes we've made only ten are showing. Maybe this is causing multiple posts to be treated as separate nodes. (?)
I'm not sure how it could be done but even if we can, do you think it is appropriate? Sometimes discussions diverge from the original topic, sometimes a post meaning is too contextualized in a discussion... these things don't happen with the first post of the topic because it defines the subject and determines the context itself.
No way to just have google treat the whole thing as one page so it
doesn't need multiple titles and descriptions?
If not then I guess you do what you said: Page 2: (repeat the

Consider that we could display it for Google as one whole page (I'm not sure if we can). Then when a query matches the third page of a topic, the visitor would be taken to the first page, where he might not even find the words he was looking for. I don't think that's appropriate.
For now I don't get any other suggestions but I'll surely let you know if I come up with something better.

On the first page of the sub-forums I will edit the title tag to customize when you are done, but that should be no problem, right?
In addition as I mentioned elsewhere, I would like to eliminate the TOPICS VIEW from the bottom level forums. This would help eliminate duplicate title tags for TOPICS VIEW.
Still don't have a solution for meta descriptions but will think on that.
Let me know what you think.
Title tags are different but not exactly what I imagined.
The main forum page doesn't need page numbers as it is only one page. Also no need to put "Standard" on anything.
Number of duplicates seems to be growing exponentially every day. Can we try to implement the above, and then see where we are? I know it's not perfect but I'm having a tough time imagining a system with out errors.
You say the number of errors are increasing. Are they increasing because the number of pages is increasing or are we having different issues now, issues that we didn't have before?
I'm not sure If I've caused these errors with the changes I've asked for or not. I was trying to figure out if forums without modified title tags have these issues, and trying to understand the standard method of assigning tags. I was looking at my unmodified test forum. One thing I notice is that the default title tags for a subforum make no mention of the parent forum. Maybe I should work within this structure. My titles are too complex now because I am trying to do two things - eliminate "duplication" errors AND optimize my site with keywords.
I could probably learn something if have you set titles back to the default setting to try to understand them better.
Question - do other forums display these kinds of errors in webmaster tools?
Also - when template is fully functional could I look into NAML and understand the way title tags are set up easily enough to make changes to the way they are structured without changing the actual NAML code too much? Like can I see how the page numbers are created and then restructure the way they are setup?
And - at one point you removed the "Threaded" and "List" Views from title tags, and they are no longer indexed separately (I think). Could this be done with TOPICS view too?
Sorry to be so persistent about this. I really want to get the title tags and SEO correct.
