How to remove index.php ?

#1
Before I buy, I am using wordpress bbpress. But I see Xenforo is a excellent forum software. But I heard that it can only remove index.php which like xxx.com/index.php and friendly url will change it to xxx.com. But how about xxx.com/index.php?register
I heard this problem from my colleague. And before I buy Xenforo I have to ask for those questions

Xenforo takes care of all this in the .htaccess file so there's nothing for you to worry about. When you register the URL is also friendly to SEO as well. Not only on the main page which does not use index.php because of this in .htaccess:

Code:
RewriteRule ^.*$ index.php [NC,L]
Not an .htaccess expert here in the least bit but I believe this rule located in the Xenforo .htaccess file is specifically meant to remove index.php for the homepage.

Once you purchase XF, support will be provided to ensure Friendly URLs are implemented.

If your friend requires support with their installation, they will need to post in the customer support forums.
