Make this forum the main website at reroll.in

We’re thinking about making this forum the main reroll.in website.

Currently reroll.in has no new content. We use it primarily for shortlinks (like reroll.in/tt and reroll.in/chat).

It also ranks a lot higher in organic search results for board games in India.

We’ll need to make some custom header navigation and banner to essentially act as a homepage and give an overview of who we are and how to navigate the site.

@nemo you have any opinions on this? We can move things like reroll.in/search or use Discourse’s page publishing feature Page Publishing - announcements - Discourse Meta to do full page embeds.

I like the idea (makes the forum more visible), but I also like the current website very much. Maybe a reroll.in/links page that keeps the current links (in addition to the footer?)

Is there a way for us to preserve the shortlinks as well?

I would be okay with the /search using Page publishing, but it might impact the styling - can you create forum.reroll.in/search so we can test this?

As an alternative, if this doesn’t work well, we can use subdomains for the existing stuff?

Like search.reroll.in / about.reroll.in?

Yeah we can. What are the existing stuff though? Only search has it’s own page with a custom script. All the other links can work since discourse supports permalinks. Like forum.reroll.in/tt works the same as reroll.in/tt

@nemo search page would look like this - Buy Board Games In India - ReRoll Forums
