Question Two SEO issues using Kunena

I am trying to SEO optimise my kunena forum and am using various tools to benchmark / grade the forum pages.

Two issues keep being flagged:

1) Please Log in or Create an account to join the conversation.

Having this text appear 10 times on the page is flagged for duplicate/spam links.

2) Replied by Username on topic Example Topic Title

Having this text appear 10 times on the page is flagged for duplicate/spam links.

As well as being an SEO issue I think the over repetition of the above 2 items is also a significant usability issue.

Screen real estate is limited on a mobile - why do we need to tell the user 10 times which topic they are on?
It is much harder to follow the flow of the conversation when it is constantly interrupted by the same repeated text.

It would be great to have a config option to switch off both of these repeated texts.

For now I am using Rereplacer to strip out the Login prompt.

I am looking into whether it could also strip out the superfluos topic titles using regex.

Very happy - found nice clean solutions to my 2 problems using Joomla language overrides.

1)  To remove repeating message - Please Log in or Create an account to join the conversation.

Add one new language override.

Original value:
COM_KUNENA_LOGIN_PLEASE = "Please %s %s to join the conversation."

My new values:
COM_KUNENA_LOGIN_PLEASE = ""

I think this is better than other solutions I have seen on forum for this issue (using CSS).

2)  To remove repeating message - Replied by Username on topic Example Topic Title

Added 2 language overrides:

Original values:
COM_KUNENA_MESSAGE_CREATED_NEW = "<em>%2$s</em> was created by <em>%1$s</em>"
COM_KUNENA_MESSAGE_REPLIED_NEW = "Replied by <em>%1$s</em> on topic <em>%2$s</em>"

My new values:
COM_KUNENA_MESSAGE_CREATED_NEW = "Topic posted by <em>%1$s</em>"
COM_KUNENA_MESSAGE_REPLIED_NEW = "Reply from <em>%1$s</em>"

The resulting view is much, much cleaner in my opinion.

You can follow the flow of the conversation with no clutter and distractions.
