So looking to use Xenforo `100% on our site now, dropping our CMS, what files do need to edit going from

/root/forums to just /root/ ?

Want to make sure I do everything correctly on the move.

You want to move all your files from /public_html/forums/ to just /public_html/ and then delete your forums folder/ Be sure to also remove the URL in home page link so you don't have a double tab and change your board url to just your domain.

Feel free to PM me if you need more help too.

The FAQ also covers it.

Redirects may also be required.

I went from lethalitygaming.com/forums to just lethalitygaming.com Seems all forums work, but anything that had links, like in the Taigachat box, are all broke.

Hard links in the database won't correct via htaccess you'll need to go in the database and edit them
