  • Error 404 in message after url forum category rewrite

    The message cannot be seen and show a Page 404 after the category forum URL is changed. The list of message is showing.

    See the images screenshot to know where I edit the url.

    does anyone know how to make it work?

    The goal is to remove the "forum" word in the URL

    You can't remove the built in /forum/ from the URL. What you can do is move your VB5 install out of your /forum/ directory and into your site root or other directory, be sure you update the core url in Admin CP -> Settings -> Options -> Site Name / URL / Contact Details BEFORE you move the files.

      I am sorry but It's possible to remove the built in /forum/ from the URL I have done it for the other categories when the xml layout was not customised, the thing very risquy is to put back the original xml style.

        We have already another CMS website in the root directory, so we need to keep the url www.mywebsite/forum but not the double forum www.mywebsite/forum/forum/category/post-message
