    Yes and No.
    Some things break.
    I am using this method, although it doesn't work for everyone.

    I cannot edit articles unless I am in the actual directory.
    List All breaks. Interesting that List All is slated to be removed from future versions. Guess it's easier to remove it then try to make it work.
    4.0.3 is supposed to make this work.

    Harv, what is your url?

    If I turn on the v4 CMS system, all the users have to go to /forums/ to view the CMS. Is there any way I can move that up to the top level directory without moving the forums?

    I used to use VBAdvanced as well, and my VB is in /forum.

    As soon as I post this someone will come along and say it doesn't work for them, but it works fine for me. Edit the index.php file that came with your VB (the instructions are in the file - you will specify your forum directory, and either require forum.php or content.php) and place it in your site root (not your /forums directory). If you require content.php, visitors to yourdomain.com will see the CMS, and visitors to yourdomain.com/forums (the index.php inside forum should require "forum.php") will get the forum.

    This doesn't physically change the location of any of your files.
