    For example:
    xenforo.com/community/forums/general-support-and-questions.25/

    How do I remove forums from that? I already have my xenforo in a forums folder so forum/forums/name-of-forum.2 looks stupid.

    Here is another thread about that.

    It's not a configurable option. And changing that part of the URL requires many file and template edits.

    I personally don't see a problem with this. I think people spend way too much time worrying about URL aesthetics.

    If the URLs really bother you then it would be easier to rename the forum directory. You can setup a redirect in the old directory so you don't break old bookmarks or search engine entries.
