    Anyone else wondering about the "CMS in root, forum in /forum" thing, it's quite possible, with vBSEO anyway.

    thanks

    all sorted now, had to reupload the contents (not the folder) of upload to the root and do the install.php thing again, removed the /forums files and amended location of forum in admincp

    Woo hoo, cms is now the index.

    Thanks for everybody that helped in this thread, Hari Krishna

    Ive looked and cant find but probably staring me in the face.
    It's the second page down in AdminCP>Settings>Options

    Wrong Forum URL
    I have set the forum URL to example.com/forum in admin CP, but this shows the CMS

    The forum seems to be at example.com/forum/forum.php

    This screws up all my members' bookmarks and links.

    What I want is the forum to be at example.com/forum and the home page to be at example.com

    Is this possible?

    Thanks guys

    If you want CMS to be in the root, and the forum to be in /forums/ then you are out of luck I think. It can be done, but it breaks the internal links so not really an option.

    See here:

    If you don't have a root page (http://www.exxxxx.com/index.php) then simply write one using a header redirect. This way you won't break your members bookmarks.

    If you have a root page already, add (or make more prominent) a clickable link to the forum, to the CMS page, to the blog page... wherever you want your members to land when they enter your forums.
