I know how to change it I think. Move the files and then change URL in the ACP. Or can it be done with just mod rewrite and leave the files in the folder? Not sure exactly how to make sure all of the forwarding from /forum to the root happens for every thread but I imagine that isn't too difficult. What I'm wondering is if there is anything else I am missing. Things I should be aware of to keep from damaging my rank in Google which has been accelerating upward the last couple of months.
Any tips and advice is much appreciated.
