I have a website investireoggi.it and I have a forum within it, investireoggi.it/forum/. Actually I am using a very old vBulletin version, but I bought Xenforo few weeks ago, and now I am trying to migrate to your platform.
Due to the fact that I am running an entire website, with a Wordpress installation, I installed Xenforo in a folder called boards.
Now I need to "cut" /boards/ from forums and threads permalink.
So I need to:
- still show my website "wordpress based" homepage at investireoggi.it
- show the xenforo based forum at investireoggi.it/boards/
- show a single section of the forum at investireoggi.it/boards/sectionname.number/ therefore without /forums/ (in alternative I can accept the url investireoggi.it/forums/sectionname.number/ so therefore without /boards/)
- show a single thread at investireoggi.it/boards/threadname/ therefore without /threads/ (in alternative I can accept the url investireoggi.it/threads/threadname.number/ so therefore without boards)
In few words: I need to have 1 less /../ in the permalink of sections and threads, for a couple of real SEO reasons, and I need to do this in my website that is not only a forum, but an entire website, therefore I don't think I can install Xenforo in the root directory.
Is there any way to do this?
Even a complex way, I just really need to do it.
Thanks in advance.
