Hey,
I have a xenForo website and I'm looking for a way to edit these things -

  • [Second] Editing the URL. How do I make it so it's http://mc-rn.net opposed to /index.php? I'm on a Dedicated Server so I can do it, the host doesn't have too. I checked the guide however I couldn't understand it!
  • [Third] How do I edit a page so it doesn't show what the page is on the page node on the forums. Like I don't this to show: http://imgur.com/mF2xyiw BUT, They can see it on the "Donate" tab on the navbar. Also, I'm using NodesAsTabs for the adding nodes to nav-bar.
  • Also, if possible, is it possible to make it so the donate tab on the nav-bar goes to donate.mc-rn.net?

EDIT: I'm on Apache.

1. Add a favicon
2. Turn on friendly url's
3. Look into the Nodes as Tabs threads, I'm sure the answer is there.

1. How do I upload the favicon? What do I name it?
2. I enabled Friendly URLs however, whenever I try to go on Forums I can't, it says -
Not Found
The requested URL /forums/ was not found on this server.
3. I couldn't find any threads, probably because of my english.

favicon.ico and in your root directory for your forum.

You also have to enable the rewrites in your HTTP server. If using Apache then just rename the htaccess.txt to .htaccess. If using nginx then use the example provided at http://xenforo.com/help/friendly-urls/.

Hello, Thank you for your reply.
However, I edited the htaccess.txt to .htaccess however I don't think mod_rewrite is enabled, how do I enable it?
Are you using Apache? If so, it should have been abled (the module) by default typically.
Enabling it depends on your OS.
Make sure your vhost definition has AllowOverride all for it (I think - I haven't used Apache in ages).

Hey,
I read all those guides, and I did them correctly. However the problem is still there.

Hit me up in a conversation and (after I finish fixing supper - about 1 1/2 hours) I can take a look at it. Will require login information to the server so it needs to be taken care of via Skype (in my profile) or convo.

EDIT:

Oh, and no charge.

Oh shoot, bump!
I just realised question 3 wasn't solved! Anywho, How would I fix it? I can't seem to find any thread regarding this.

What do you mean couldn't find any threads? You mean on your forum? Make sure the permissions are set correctly.

Well, I would check, but your site is not responding now.

EDIT:

I can get there by the IP, but when trying to go by the domain name (mc-rn.net) it is not responding.

And I see the donate... looks like a page node... but - if that's supposed to be for people to donate you need to look at using a button/add-on.

I need to use a iFrame. BuyCraft is what process's the donation.
Like, I want this. Go to www.hypixel.net and click Server Store. It directly goes to store.hypixel.net. How do I do that?

Looks like he added a navigation tab to take you to either an html page or something that is set up on a separate domain.

I don't know if that is a page that is hosted by BuyCraft or is one that he had written and serves from his server/hosting.

He's using BuyCraft. I have a subdomain donate.mc-rn.net.

Then you need to set up a vhost for that domain and then code the HTML (or php pages) as required to duplicate that content. You may be able to do it with something as simple as using WordPress or they may have a store that you link to. That needs to be checked with via BuyCraft.

EDIT:
It looks like it is a standalone web application that you set up on your server from first glance. I'm not into the MineCraft craze so not sure exactly what it is. You would probably be better served asking on a MineCraft specific site or at http://dev.bukkit.org/bukkit-plugins/buycraft/
