    I have solved the problem myself now. We have moved the /forum folder one layer up into the root and with a 301 redirect all backlinks are intact and google spiders will update it once they follow the link.

    I am happy now

    Bram and others, you should read this thread - it's the bug report for this one. vb devs say will be fixed in next release on 1/7/10... but it's worth reading -- not all that clear.

    This is such a basic thing! Any site with a CMS has their www.domain.com as a CMS and then /forums for the actual forums! That's just common sense. Am I regretting buying the suite? PLEASE DON"T MAKE ME REGRET THIS!
    I am waiting too. I've had the CMS at the ....com and the forum at /forums for years. Now I have to change it? YUK! I'll wait.

    It seems that my waiting days are almost over and a solution is in sight! The guys over at vBSEO have addressed the problem and are working on a suitable solution: http://www.vbseo.com/f9/cms-homepage...d-forum-39843/

    So untill vB is fixing the problem I will use the good old vBSEO rewriting

    Yeah... that is also what I am saying... the search engines have indexed the /forum and not the root folder. I hope someone will give a good answer on this .

    Maybe an official word from the devs how they are gonna address this problem? I have bought many licenses for vB and vBSEO in the past and I plan on continueing to do so as I simply love the forum feature. Maybe we can get a refund on the suite and simple go for vba again?

    Just FYI, here is a similar thread dating back to Nov. 13th with 114 posts of frustrated vb users without a solution (just to consolidate)

    I agree that it is rather disappointing that the forums are not set up or have the option to use www.domain.com as a direct access to the CMS. For someone like me who does not know much about these configurations, it makes vB4 forum almost useless. I see some are using a redirect as a temporary fix, however it does not look very professional.
    Forgive me if I am missing something, however, I can not imagine why vB would not incorporate this in their design.

    The thing is i would like to see that categories would also be a subdomain so when i make cat1, cat2, cat3 i would like to see sub1, sub2, sub3.domain.tld this really should be a basic function.

    As pretty as the forum is, it really is NOT intuitive to style at all. In fact, it's next to impossible to find things to style you would otherwise just use regular CSS for.

    There are at least 3 different area's of the forum that you HAVE to go to - to style the site. Really frustrating actually.

    This makes it so hard to style anything different from other forums.

    Who's idea was it to make the "Reply to thread" and "post new thread" buttons all generic?? I want to use custom images, but now I have to edit templates to get them.. and every time I update the site I will have to reedit the templates where as before images were fine. It's not like we are trying to SEO a "reply to thread" button, making it be text was a mistake.

    I already preformed the upgrade on my forum so it's too late for me and will have to deal with the short comings.

    I'm sure if enough people complain, changes will happen.

    Exactly you ruin your carefully build SEO at once.

    @ a few posts above: i do have vBSEO installed, how do i rewrite that so the CMS appears on www. ?
