Before we tell the problem, I will tell a little about our forum. Our forum already has many categories. There are currently 27 categories.
At present, we plan to open a buying and selling forum, which consists of many categories. Why do we need many categories? Because one of the main factors is, we depend on the topic list plugin, where the topic list plugin still doesn’t support tags. In addition, we also have difficulty if we only use one category, for example the buying and selling category.
For example, the fashion category requires men’s and women’s fashion sub-categories. Inside, it is divided into sub categories of pants, clothes and accessories. Because discourse only allows one level sub category, we plan to create two categories, namely men’s fashion and women’s fashion. This also applies to other types of categories, such as books, electronics and so on.
The question are :
How do you manage good categories for buying and selling forums? Is managing the categories like Amazon the best?
Can we make it in the main forum, which will later become very many categories in it, maybe around 40 categories?
Or do we need to create a new forum and put it in the sub domain? for example store.example.com
If we create a new forum, what are the technical constraints, especially user management
If we create a new forum, does Google consider it a new site or part of the main site? What is the impact on SEO?
We really hope for the input, because we believe that many users here are very experienced in managing a forum
Thank you very much for your attention and help. Sorry if the english is bad, I hope you can understand what we mean.
