    Hi there,

    Tried searching but to no avail...

    I'm currently trying to change "Forum" to "Community"

    And also here:


    I'm sure I've come across the setting somewhere, but I can't remember where and it's baffling me now!

    Thanks in advanced

    Its a phrase. Just go into phrases. You are looking for the one that is plural "forums". Change it.

    It appears as if Brogan tried to out Brogan me:

    You can't just delete your post Brogan!

    It was superfluous so no point in leaving it in place.

    Cheers both :) appreciate the swift response, tried the "Forum" but found "Forums" and it's worked perfectly

    Next question - where can I change the URL part?

    currently it is http://sub.domain.com/forums <<< I want to change "Forums" to "Community" there too, is that possible? I think this must of been the setting I saw somewhere? (Note - this isn't the directory of XenForo, that is "sub")

    Route Filters would certainly do the job. Not 100% sure if thats how they do it here.

    Change the directory name on the server then update the board link in ACP

    If its in the root then forums isn't a folder its a route. If his entire install is in /forums, then yes.

    It's not the directory :(

    It's something else, this is the directory (sub.domain.com > points to "xenforo")

    I'm sure I've seen a setting somewhere that says something like "use the following for the forum url:" "/forums"
