XF 1.4 forum url issue

anmol dubey

I have installed xenforo inside a folder "forums"

Post installation i had created a custom page node which is at "www.websitename.com/forums/pages/homepage"

Settings :
board url - http://websitename.com/forums/
index route - pages/homepage
homepage url - pages/homepage


After doing this when i click on any of the forum pages url looks like below


Why are two forums appearing in the url? How can i solve this issue?

Note - when i click on thread the url looks normal like - http://websitename.com/forums/threads/tutorial-how-to-post-a-new-thread.279/

You cannot remove the /forums/ route, but you can change it using Route Filters. Otherwise you have to rename your forums folder to something else, such as community.

Any particular reason you didn't place it in your root?
It's picking up the "forums" from your directory name. Move it into /community and you will see one of the forums change to /community.
