    Heya.. as you may know.. developers are moving their designs to DIV based as it seems Google doesn't like tables anymore ..
    So my question is short.. Do you know any forum (free) software with the templates 100% made on DIV and CSS ?!

    Thanks

    You have to hire designer for making tableless theme for your forum and it should be customized as per your need.

    IMHO the whole notion of 100% abandoning tables for SEO has really gotten out of hand.

    The main reason to use CSS for SEO is to tweak the "headline" of your page (and possibly a few other elements) for the benefit of the search engine.

    So, while you want your user to see something like this:

    subtle ad/banner ad
    Site Title
    Site Content
    more ads

    You want the search engine to see:

    Site Title
    Site Content
    subtle ad/banner ad
    more ads

    It is my contention that once you are actually within your content, tables are not going to make any appreciable difference to the search engines.

    Just my .02.

    I'm assuming you've never heard of PunBB, or Vanilla? You should check those out.
