  • Moved VB to subfolder, question about url with double forum

    I recently moved my forum from the / root folder to a subfolder named /forum

    Now all seems to work, however all urls are made like:

    Code:
    url.com/forum/forum/<channel-name>/<sub-channel>
    Whereas I want them as:


    Code:
    url.com/forum/<channel-name>/<sub-channel>
    Might the reason be that "forum" is not Node 1

    Forum should never be Node 1. The second /forum is because your forums are a sub-channel of Forum. It has the URL of /forum. Sub-channels inherit the URL of their parent when they are created.

    You'll have to edit the page of every forum and change its URL.
    1. Go to the Forum Page on the front end.
    2. Click "Edit Page" in the Site Builder Menu.
    3. Save the Page.
    4. Update the URL in the Save Dialog.
    5. Finish the save.
    6. Repeat for each channel.
