    with XF uploaded to "forum" folder on the server and SEO friendly urls enabled
    ...is it possible to remove "forums" & "threads" from URLs so instead:

    site.com/forum/forums/forum_title
    site.com/forum/threads/thread_title

    would be:

    site.com/forum/forum_title
    site.com/forum/thread_title

    2nd question... is it possible to replace those words with different ones?
    If so...where I could change it?

    Hi Brogan,

    Thank you for fast reply.
    If I can't remove or change wording of "forums" & "threads" in URLs
    do you know how to achieve this URL structure?

    http://www.8wayrun.com/forum/ - forum home

    but when "forums" and "threads" are used in URLs, subfolder name ("forum") is removed
    http://www.8wayrun.com/forums/news-announcements.78/
    http://www.8wayrun.com/threads/turn-your-voice-into-the-new-game.6513/

    I just want to avoid having "forum" and "forums" in one URL

    site.com/forum/forums/forum_title

    If you install in the root then there will be no additional /forum directory.

    As for the specific set up of that site, you would better off asking the site owner.

    I think it has something to do with his portal add-on.

    If only this was true the "forums" & "threads" part sucks :C

    Jaxel is one of the more established addon-author. The / and the /forum are caused by his XenPorta add-on, and it doesn't do /forum/forums or anything.

    Cool, I just downloaded it and took a quick gander. Looks like he is using Shadab's library, just that it's bundled in with the portal addon. ;) Everything still needs to be uploaded to the root?

    Oh, then I suppose it is. You can assume all the plugins go to the root, then.
