  • [CMS] How to make CMS my homepage?

    My forums are on /forums/forum.php... Is it safe to simply move the files in FTP in order to make it appear on ?

    Second question, is there a good tutorial on using the CMS anywhere?

    There are about a gazillion posts on this topic. There are several methods (including moving your forum to siteroot) - some work for some and not for others.

    Editing index.php and putting it in the siteroot will give you the choice of CMS or Forum as your homepage, for example will bring up forum or cms as you desire, but some don't like the url structure (your internal urls still point to /forum/*.php, etc.)

    You can also use mod rewrite and/or VBSEO. As for me, I'm living with the index.php in siteroot option (and using VBSEO) - as VB has said they will address the issue at some point in time. Why they focus on things like Facebook integration at this point is beyond me

      Yes, there's a number of tutorials on here, do a search and read the blogs.

      To make the CMS your homepage edit the index.php file.

      Simply remove the // comments from one line
      Add them to the beginning of the other.

      You will see what to do when you open it up.
