I have one site using Discourse in full forum mode. I’m looking at starting a new site with news and a forum and I’m wondering how hard it would be to just skip using Wordpress and try to make the site purely on Discourse.
Does anyone know any sites doing this in a nicely design way?
How would the response times (speed of the site) compare to a bootstrap 4, based Wordpress theme’d site? Any ideas?
How hard would this be to implement?
Would this make sense - easier to do than having both Wordpress/Bootstrap Theme, plus Discourse?
My goal would be to use only Discourse and have a “News” category of the forum show up on the left side of the screen (a photo would be included at the top of each posting in this category) and then the right side of the screen would be just a regular full forum view with all the posts.
Sort of like this (in high-concept form): Where in this case all the right hand side would be the forum posts in a right side column that is perhaps 40% of the width of the page.
