    I would like to use "new post " page as home page. https://mysite/find-new/posts

    This is my .htaccess:
    #    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
        RewriteCond %{SERVER_PORT} 80
        RewriteRule ^(.*)$ https://mysite.com/$1 [R,L]
        #    If you are having problems with the rewrite rules, remove the "#" from the
        #    line that begins "RewriteBase" below. You will also have to change the path
        #    of the rewrite to reflect the path to your XenForo installation.
        #RewriteBase /xenforo
        #    This line may be needed to enable WebDAV editing with PHP as a CGI.
        #RewriteRule .* - [E=HTTP_AUTHORIZATION:%{HTTP:Authorization}]
        RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -f [OR]
        RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -l [OR]
        RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} -d
        RewriteRule ^.*$ - [NC,L]
        RewriteRule ^(data/|js/|styles/|install/|favicon\.ico|crossdomain\.xml|robots\.txt) - [NC,L]
        RewriteRule ^.*$ index.php [NC,L]

    I now that there in the ACP -> General -> Basic Board Information/ have some option to make it. but In my case doesn't work.

    I will really appreciate some help to do this.

    Thank you.

    You would set the index page route option to "find-new/posts".

    I think it would be quite crucial for SEO.

    No, this is fundamental to how the page functions.

    Regarding SEO, the find new pages are noindex'd.

    What I mean is that if your home page was the list of new/recent posts, you would want it to be indexed and you would want the url to be



    or whatever

    I'm trying to do this.

    I get what you're saying @Mr Lucky

    Did you manage to find a way? It's like how blackhatseo.com have their setup. The homepage is a list of recent posts, and their forums are then located at /forum. They don't have the redirect to /find-new/posts when you visit their main domain.

    No, they just have a static html list.

    I managed to do it using Widget Framework and created a Node as a page with widgets and set that as homepage. Works awesomely. I'm now ranking for a few competitors main key phrases :)
