Joomla + Xenforo ... /community/ -> /forums/

    We currently operate Joomla 3.x (CMS) as our root application. We are considering to migrate our forums to Xenforo from vBulletin 4.2.1 which now operates on a subdomain. However, we would like to get rid of the subdomain and operate Xenforo from a subdirectory of Joomla.

    Currently, we use a social networking extension for Joomla called JomSocial which "exists" as follows:
    root/community

    We would prefer to have Xenforo as:
    root/forums

    But from what I understand, you can only create something like: root/forums_or_other_name/forums.

    Or, is there any way to create the main forums listing as simply Joomla_root/forums/forum_name/thread_name?

    Thanks. -- Rik

    XenForo can be installed in any directory you wish, including /forums.

    But would that create the root/forums/forums/ urls that I would like to avoid?

    Yes.
    Change it with a route filter or install in another directory.

    That would conflict with our Joomla installation. But Brogan's solution of the route filter (I've just read a little about that) might work.

    Thanks to both of you.

    If you have to change Xenforo's directory ... it's easy to do later.
    In case you change your mind.
