    Are you saying the home page works but the articles do not work?

    Problem - I've set this up on my local server using...

    Forum URL: http://192.168.1.150/subs/tcm/forum
    HomePage URL: http://192.168.1.150/subs/tcm

    CMS URL: http://192.168.1.150/subs/tcm/
    Default Home Page: 1-Index
    Site Tab URL: <leave this blank>

    I've checked and rechecked everything else and can't figure-out why when I click on article links on the cms page, I get the below error unless I change the CMS URL: to http://192.168.1.150/subs/tcm/forum. Any ideas?

    The below links (referrer page, etc.) are http://192.168.1.150/subs/tcm
    Object not found!

    The requested URL was not found on this server. The link on the referring page seems to be wrong or outdated. Please inform the author of that page about the error.
    If you think this is a server error, please contact the webmaster.
    Error 404

    I'm not sure I understand... This same method is in the 'official' vb4 manual and says nothing about not being supported. Did I miss something?

    So I believe I did what you said but I must of went wrong some where. My root domain works at maddenstars.com but the maddenstars.com/forums isn't working. If you click on the forums link, it is http://maddenstars.com/forums/forum.php. Can anyone help with what I'm missing here? Excellent post because I just puchased the CMS suite and have been struggling on how to figure out a way to make the actual CMS my root domain.

    This looks like a good place to ask, is it possible yet to have the CMS in your website root whilst having forums in /forum without the need to modify code?

    I bought VB4 as soon as it came out but not having the ability to do this was a bit of a joke and so far we've stuck with VB3 and VBCMPS and are just waiting until it's "officially" possible to set it up how we need to.

    Cheers

    I just realised the other files weren't working properly either so I've re-done all of them using notepad and it all seems fine.

    Thanks for being so patient with me.

    thank jebus it's over!

    yeah wordpad/word will add extra formatting codes etc to plain text so you should never use it.

    Glad you got it working

    HOORAH IT'S WORKING!

    I used notepad, as you said, and it's finally working.

    The other files were done using Wordpad and no problems, which is odd.

    I didn't think it would make such a difference using Notepad over Wordpad.

    Thankyou for your help.

    I was using Wordpad.
    My index.php file looks correct when I view it. It looks the same as the one you posted above.
    sigh.

    when I download that I get this:

    PHP Code:
    {\rtf1\ansi\ansicpg1252\deff0\deflang2057{\fonttbl{\f0\fswiss\fcharset0 Arial;}}
    {\*\generator Msftedit 5.41.21.2509;}\viewkind4\uc1\pard\f0\fs20 <?php\par
    define
    (VB_RELATIVE_PATH'forum');\par
    chdir
    ('./' VB_RELATIVE_PATH);\par
    require('content.php'); \par
    ?>
      \par
    }
    are you cutting and pasting from ms word or something? use note pad

    can you see how that's different to what is required?

    Which index.php?

    The one that I had to create myself as described in the first post of this thread?

    Or the one thats found in public_html/forum/index.php?

    I've attached the former.

    index.php
