I'm trying to get friendly urls working, but there is one small problem I'm dealing with. With the option on, I can access the main forum, pages, and threads. For example, these pages:

The only ones I can't access are forums, such as:

Google Chrome gives me Oops! The link appears to be broken.

My .htaccess is the following:

#Mod_security can interfere with uploading of content such as attachments. If you
#cannot attach files, remove the "#" from the lines below.
#<IfModule mod_security.c>
#SecFilterEngine Off
#SecFilterScanPOST Off

ErrorDocument 401 default
ErrorDocument 403 default
ErrorDocument 404 default
ErrorDocument 500 default

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On

#If you are having problems with the rewrite rules, remove the "#" from the
#line that begins "RewriteBase" below. You will also have to change the path
#of the rewrite to reflect the path to your XenForo installation.
#RewriteBase /xenforo

RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -l [OR]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
RewriteRule ^.*$ - [NC,L]
RewriteRule ^(data|js|styles|install) - [NC,L]
RewriteRule ^.*$ index.php [NC,L]
I have mod_rewrite and AllowOverride enabled. The only idea I have is the fact that I moved my installation copy from to At first I used an htaccess redirect, but that made the forum links not work, even with non-friendly urls, so I just got rid of that. I've also deleted my subdomain pointing in Plesk that was pointing to I'm at a loss here.

I also updated the ACP-Options-BasicBoardInformation URL, and my customer information on Xenforo.

Thank you for the help. I couldn't get this to work reading through the existing topics on the subject.
