Here is an Example...
Lets use url...
https://mllapan.com/forum/Tema-Uvjeti-Kori%C5%A1tenja
I requested indexing in google webmasters 5 days in a row, and it will not show with link search in Google Search Engine at all.
I am using All in One SEO WordPress plugin on main site, and forum is installed in subdirectory, but if I test it live in Webmaster Tools, it shows that URL can be indexed, so what is going on?  Confused

Note: It index any requested Wordpress post in less than minute.

None of your forum URLs are indexed from what i can see, not sure why that would be.

For this specific URL you have a problem: The canonical in the <head> section shows as:

<link rel="canonical" href="https://mllapan.com/forum/Tema-Uvjeti-Kori%C5%A1tenja" />

it should be:

<link rel="canonical" href="https://mllapan.com/forum/Tema-Uvjeti-Korištenja" />

These are 2 different URLs as far as Google is concerned. What plugin are you using to generate the canonical if not Google SEO ?

It is Google Seo plugin that I am using.
I checked that too, if that might be the problem in special characters in URL, but seems it is not, if you use any other URL like...
https://mllapan.com/forum/Tema-Kakve-igrice-volite
https://mllapan.com/forum/Tema-Kako-otvo...Windows-10

Those are without special characters, but won't get indexed.

If you check here https://httpstatus.io/ with any of forum URLS, they return 200, and I really don't see where the problam lays.
Also I added /forum/ in exclusions in AllInOne Seo WordPress Plugin, still nothing.

To be honest, I don't think this is a problem related to myBB, rather there is soemthing what bothers google for /forum/ sub-directory, but I can't find what.

Something is causing your site not to be indexed and Google is active on it, you can see even now.

i checked your robots.txt also, nothing in there that i can see.

Since you're using Google SEO plugin, make use of the sitemap feature and then submit the sitemap URL to Google. Thats all you need to do to get indexed.

I checked Bing and it says there that content has been removed.

This is the mllapan.com .htaccess

# BEGIN WordPress
# The directives (lines) between `BEGIN WordPress` and `END WordPress` are
# dynamically generated, and should only be modified via WordPress filters.
# Any changes to the directives between these markers will be overwritten.
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /index.php [L]
</IfModule>

# END WordPress

# php -- BEGIN cPanel-generated handler, do not edit
# Set the “ea-php73” package as the default “PHP” programming language.
<IfModule mime_module>
  AddHandler application/x-httpd-ea-php73 .php .php7 .phtml
</IfModule>
# php -- END cPanel-generated handler, do not edit

This is mllapan.com/forum/ .htaccess


RewriteEngine on

# Some hosts require RewriteBase to make RewriteRules work.
RewriteBase /forum/

# Google SEO workaround for search.php highlights:
# Make this rule the first rewrite rule in your .htaccess!
RewriteRule ^([^&]*)&(.*)$ https://mllapan.com/forum/$1?$2 [L,QSA,R=301]

# Google SEO 404:
ErrorDocument 404 /forum/misc.php?google_seo_error=404

# Google SEO Sitemap:
RewriteRule ^sitemap\-([^./]+)\.xml$ misc.php?google_seo_sitemap=$1 [L,QSA,NC]

# Google SEO URL Forums:
RewriteRule ^Forum\-([^./]+)$ forumdisplay.php?google_seo_forum=$1 [L,QSA,NC]

# Google SEO URL Threads:
RewriteRule ^Tema\-([^./]+)$ showthread.php?google_seo_thread=$1 [L,QSA,NC]

# Google SEO URL Announcements:
RewriteRule ^Obavjestenje\-([^./]+)$ announcements.php?google_seo_announcement=$1 [L,QSA,NC]

# Google SEO URL Users:
RewriteRule ^Korisnik\-([^./]+)$ member.php?action=profile&google_seo_user=$1 [L,QSA,NC]

# Google SEO URL Calendars:
RewriteRule ^Kalendar\-([^./]+)$ calendar.php?google_seo_calendar=$1 [L,QSA,NC]

# Google SEO URL Events:
RewriteRule ^Dogadjaj\-([^./]+)$ calendar.php?action=event&google_seo_event=$1 [L,QSA,NC]

Bing probably did not indexed anything.

Add this to your robots.txt:

I can't see anything that might be causing a problem.

Those special characters are a problem though, they are generating duplicate content for you.
