Addon as subdomain

    My whole forum is using classic URLs, as an example, my resource manager is at board.com/resources.

    But I would like, for some specifics add-on (we will call it videos as an example), to make this addon available at videos.board.com only. And there would be a redirection from board.com/videos to videos.board.com.

    I saw something like this at DigitalPoints, example : https://tools.digitalpoint.com/.

    Best regards.

    I tried to do the same right now, but had no luck.

    Reading what digitalpoint said:


    And I'm not a PHP expert anyway. :D

    @digitalpoint, have you found a new way to do it ? If yes or no, could you release the actual "hack" you are using ?

    Nope, still doing it the retarded way unfortunately...

    Curious what advantages there are to having the URL as videos.board.com as opposed the the default board.com/videos.

    Personal preference, but for the majority of resources, it won't give any structural differences. Digital Point has several sub-sections to a lot of his sections, so placing them in a separate "site" (ie, tools.digitalpoint.com) allows a structural methodology shift.

    Let's you more easily use different servers for different parts of site since you can resolve a sub-domain to a different IP... Beyond that, it's just personal preference.

    With that you can host the video addon on an other server.
