    I wanted to use friendly url's but it says

    "However, to enable this, mod_rewrite must be available and an appropriate .htaccess file must be in place "

    Can someone help me, consider me a noob and tell me step by step what to do xD

    First of all, just try enabling it.

    If it works then you have it installed on your server.
    If it doesn't work then you don't have it installed.

    Are you on a managed server or do you maintain it yourself?
    If a managed server, ask your host to install it.

    I'll try to enable it. And I'm on a managed server. I'll let you know if it works or not.

    It works xD I'm sorry for creating the topic ^^

    Alright I got that sorted out. I want to know how to make a page as the home. Like how I'd asked on my pre-sale thread you said you'll help me get it sorted. It will be much appreciated!

    Well first you need to create your Page, you do that in the ACP.
    You will require knowledge of HTML and CSS as Pages do not support BB Code.

    Then update the ACP -> Options -> Home Page URL to e.g. /community/pages/home/ (where home is the name of your Page node)

    Finally, set up a 301 redirect from your domain root to your Page.
