Forum in subdomain without "forum" word?


I want install my community in subdomain, so the url of my forum will be:


I saw that as default, the url of my sections are:
  • forum.mydomain.com/forums/name-of-section.17/
How can I remove the word "forums" from the URL?

I would like that the urls are only:
  • forum.mydomain.com/name-of-section.17/
Thank you,

The forums route can't be removed - it is intrinsic to the software.

There will be the option to rename the route in 1.2, but not remove it.
Hello Brogan,

so I can change the "forums" word with Route Changer, but I can't remove it...

While, if I install Xenforo in the root of my server, I don't have this situation.

Is this correct?
