Vanilla 1 is no longer supported or maintained. If you need a copy, you can get it here
I've developed two sites from scratch. New domains (.com), different hosting companies.
Both are forums: one is Vanilla, the other is PunBB.
The Vanilla one has some content, 28 discussions. The PunBB has 3 topics in it, that is, no content at all...
I've submited the sitemap of the Vanilla one to Google 15 days ago. Still not indexed.
I've submited the sitemap of the PunBB to Google 6 six after. It's indexed.
Now, why would this happen? Because less content = faster indexing, or is it because PunBB is more Google friendly than Vanilla?
How long did it take for your Vanilla Forum to get indexed by Google?
