Gopher now Supported!
« on: May 22, 2020, 10:49:39 pm »
We have just added Gopher support to Create A Forum

What is Gopher you ask? Wiki
Gopher is a communications protocol for retrieving information such as documents from IP networks.
It is an exciting technology used by thousands of people world wide!

In my opinion, Gopher is what google wants AMP to be but is 20 years ahead of itís time. It makes the perfect alternative, providing fast browsing without any advertising/javascripts to slow you down! Think of the SEO value.

Below is a recorded demo of Gopher in actionwith createaforum, but you can also check out in real-time using your own Gopher Client

There are a few areas I want to clean up bbc code, support attachments/images,full text copy of post or html, and search inside forums/topics but this is a start!

And as a bonus we also submitted to the Gopher search engine to get more sites indexed!
