    We try not to make changes that wouldn't normally exist on customer sites and wouldn't be supported if they did./forum/forum/ is merely an aesthetics issue and not worth taking special measures to change.

    I am official vBulletin support and my answer stands, if your vBulletin is installed in the root you get the directory structure you requested:

    Example:

    Root: http://sedona.vbulletin.net/
    Forum: http://sedona.vbulletin.net/forum/
    Blog: http://sedona.vbulletin.net/blogs/

    However you have now added that you have a homepage and other folders in the root- in that case you would not want to install vBulletin in the root as they would likely conflict with existing pages/folders/ I would recommend you install in a folder called "community" or something similar so URLs would be like domain.com/community/forum/ and domain.com/community/blogs/

    Sorry for the confusion.

    Got this response from support just now:

    Hello,

    Your blog and forum must be located in the same directory.

    Example: http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/blogs

    So two different answers... too late I already purchased the software. Nice.

    I thought Joe D. was official vBulletin support... how could he not know this??

    OK, I think I understand what you are saying but my website is not just a forum/blog. I have a home page and other pages/folders in the root. So in that case is it possible to have /forum and /blog folders as opposed to reaching the blog by going to /forum/blog.


    Edit: hehe the second time I read your post I realized that is exactly what you are saying.

    Thanks for the response.

    If you install vBulletin in your website root that will actually be the directory structure by default.

    started a topic Directory Structure

    Directory Structure

    Sorry I searched everywhere and couldn't find an answer to this.

    In vBulletin 5 Connect is it possible to have the following directory structure:

    http://www.mysite.com/forum
    http://www.mysite.com/blog

    Thank You,
    Clay
