  • can i have home page itself as forum page?

    1) can I have my home page as forum page?

    ie: can http://wwwDOTmydomainnameDOTcom/ itself be my forum page instead of usual http://wwwDOTmydomainnameDOTcom/forum

    2) I do not have forum site yet but i just want to ensure whether there is any disadvantage of having my home page as forum page?


    3) Is this achieved by simply uploading the forum script to 'public_html'

    Thanks in advance.

        Nope. Just go for it. Build one up and see what it is like for yourself. Don't be shy about it. Go and do it.

          Yes. Just upload the vBulletin files in public_html.

          DO NOT just upload the upload folder. Do every one itself. Other wise the forums would be www.yourdomain.com/upload.

          Or, you could upload the upload folder and do a redirect.

            there are, indeed, advantages to putting it as the main folder. It makes modifications easier, because your forum root and webroot are the same folder, so it makes it much easier. Or am I only thinking IPB

              I don't think it would make a difference from modifications perspective.
