XF 1.1 Need help with friendly URLs


Well-known member
So do I need to update a config file to not get it to mess up my current threads when I select the friendly URLs option?
No, the config files actually do the rewriting for you. Switching to the Friendly URLs basically does nothing more than make sure the web server looks for the config file to inform it how the URLs should be displayed.

Without the config file, it will not know, and thus you see an error.

Think of it as a dictionary for the web server :)
