  • [Forum] I want to get rid of unwanted vbulletin message.



    We have decided to not use CMS. I found a way on this forum to turn off the loading of CMS.
    We want the forum to appear when the url is reached. Instead I get the attached vbulletin warning message. I have tried getting the url to open on
    forum, but that has not worked. I have tried going to the default permissions so unregistered uses can see the forum, but that does not work. My vbulletin experience is loading upgrades and
    selecting options in the admin cpanel.

    download index.php from your vb folder
    read the comments and follow the instructions. Make it load forum.php.
    Then upload it back.

        Can someone tell me which index.php? There are several of them. I thought admincp was probably it since it was the largest. I saw several places where 'home' could be replaced by 'forum', but I did not see comments or instructions. I also looked at least two other index.php's in install directories that could not be the right one.

          The one in the root of your install.

            I tried adding the following line to install/index.php.
            require_once('./forum.php');
            It did not work. I think I need more specific instructions.

            I have programmed a lot in C++, C#, and Java. However, I do not have php experience.

              You don't edit install/index.php. You don't edit admincp/index.php. You edit the index.php in your forum's root directory. This is the directory that contains both the install and admincp directories. NO OTHER index.php file should be edited at any time.

              You need to read the contents of the file. Since the format is exactly the same as C/C++ it should be very familiar to you.

              Code:
              /**
               * You can choose the default script here.  Uncomment the appropriate line
               * to set the default script.  Note: Only uncomment one of these, you must
               * add // to comment out the script(s) that you DO NOT want to use as your
               * default script.
               *
               * You can choose the default script even if you do not plan to move this
               * file to the root of your website.
               */

                Thanks Wayne. The problem is fixed. Wonderful things happen when you are looking at the right file.
