I am sorry I can not answer your question, since I have no idea about Accelerated Mobile Pages (AMP) before.  While, I google this concept, it is very interesting.  I will consider this approach in my future development.

Look like AMP is mandatory for every web site.  I will try to make an AMP complied theme for MyBB 1.8.  Any progress and/or problem, I will let you know.

All,

I develop a prototype AMP solution: https://community.mybb.com/thread-211403.html .

Any comments are welcome.

What do you mean by an AMP complied theme ? Since page content is not static, will it help ?

Developing something that depends on an user-agent redirect is not taking MyBB forward IMO.

Taken from Google:

We recommend using responsive web design because it:


  • Requires no redirection for users to have a device-optimized view, which reduces load time. Also, user agent-based redirection is error-prone and can degrade your site’s user experience (see Pitfalls when detecting user agents" section for details).

I know what AMP is. Even suggested AMP support for MyBB. Lead Developer @Euan termed it as not suitable for forums. There were also a few people who thought the same.

Do you use AMPed HTML in this ? I am really confused on what you are offering.

Hi meetdilip,

Good question.  I will describe my understanding.  Please correct me if I am wrong.

AMP does use Google cache proxy.  While, 
1. we can add link from Google cached pages to original forum thread, as described in: https://www.alexkras.com/google-may-be-s...e-traffic/ -- so end users can get the completed post.

2. we can force Google cache to refresh when forum have new thread/reply/edit, as described in: https://getmxt.com/update-google-amp-cache .

3. we can use cache-control header: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/4480...he-control to ask Google to refresh the cache more frequently.

Actually, I have the same concern as you on this dynamic content issue, even someone on Internet said dynamic is OK for AMP: https://productforums.google.com/forum/#...s/category$3Aaccelerated-mobile-pages-amp  While, since AMP complied mobile web pages will have a higher rating in Google search result, my understanding is, I want to have a try, and find what will actually happen and how many issues I can solve.

Any comments are welcome.

There is one issue you should take care, I do not know if this is your point, I just describe here: it is very hard, even impossible to make the default theme to comply with AMP, because this will be a lot of code change, and many plugins/themes will have to be re-written.  My suggestion is we implement it in a plugin/theme, and use a detection and redirection script to activate this plugin/theme when end users come from mobile devices.
