    Hi all,

    I've just moved from VB4 to VB5, however I used to have a custom index.php but now VB5 has its own index.php which directly leads to the forum.
    I've been trying to rename it to forums.php so I could use my own index.php, however that screws up my front page, for instance my sub navigation bar disappears whenever I access the forum with every other method than http://domain.com.

    Any idea how to fix this?

    Thanks!

    Just a shot in the dark here, but did you try renaming your custom index.php to index.html?

      Well no, I have the index.php that ships with VB5. But I want my own index.php and rename the one from VB to forum.php.

      Or what I did try was renaming my own php to home.php and add it to Apache's directory index. However when I navigate from my own home.php (that has a link to domain.com/index.php) so to the forum then the sub navigation bar is gone. I don't know how to fix this, how can I always show the sub navigation bar no matter what?

      Thanks.

        What you want isn't supported. Everything in the system points to index.php. You would have to install vBulletin in a subdirectory to completely separate it from your custom index.php page.

          Got it, that might be an option. Thanks.

          I don't know why VB5 makes it so hard for me though to do the most simple things. I guess it's just a matter of getting used to

            You could call yours home.php and set the system default page to home.php instead of index.php.

              vBulletin 5 is designed to be a fully encapsulated website. Maybe if you were able to describe what you're trying to do then we could provide better answers.

                Yes I did that, tried that but then suddenly my sub navigation bar is gone which is no option. I'll try the subdir option see if that works.

                  I don't see how doing that could have affected anything in vBulletin.

                    Ok I found the issue and it's probably a bug.

                    If you edit the button 'HOME' on the main navigation bar, and set it to anything else than http://domain.com or http://domain.com/index.php the sub navigation bar won't show any longer although it does show when you edit the page.
