XF 1.5 Home Page creation troubles

Hello, I'm having some troubles creating a home page for my forum. I've searched the last week without any answer that could help me.

I know how to make a custom page (theforum.com/forums/pages/mypage/), But there is still a wrapper. I'm trying to have the page with Header and Footer only.

I will use some nginx url rewrite to make the page appear as the main page.

Thanks in advance,

You don't need rewrite rules - just set the Index Page Route in the options to the page URL.

The add-on enables a focused home tab, which otherwise won't be possible.

Ah yes, in that case you will need rules.

However, if you never intend to install anything in the domain root, you could consider moving the XF installation there.
I think I'll do that. But is there any ways to change the path of a page ? for example to get myforum.com/help pointing to myforum.com/pages/help ?

It's possible but why would you want to change the default help route to a page?

Why not just create a custom help page, or just use a page?
It is not really for a help page, but for some utils pages etc. It could be really useful to have myforums.com/games instead of myforums.com/pages/games
