XF 1.2 HTACCESS Rule Merging


Active member
Hi I have just started to use my own portal for frontpage and have changed htaccess

However, when going to the homepage, i get Page Not Found error - and it seems the styling is non-existent. just html.. and i can not access admincp

It seems the problem is that I am trying to merge some HTACCESS rules

RewriteRule ^forum/(.*)$ http://website.com/community/$1 [R=301,L]
RewriteRule ^(threads|forums|members|forum)/(.*)$ /community/$1/$2 [R=301,L]
RewriteRule ^(.*) index.php?do=/$1

Those two rules on the top, I really want to include those because they help with old vb redirects. . But it clashes with another rule needed in 3. I am not an expert, but would love someone to have a look at this. Might be a simple thing to do

thank you

I can help but I need more information.

What redirects do you need to implement? If you tell me what your intention is then I can give you rules and instructions.
