Number at the end of node in link

    Hello, everyone at XenForo! I'm starting up a new forum and decided to ditch my old vB license. Purchased new hosting, XenForo, etc. and finished installing it.

    I just started creating nodes and realized that there are numbers at the end of each node in the link. For instance:




    That "25" is there at the end. However, I see that in another forum, there isn't a number.



    How can I set it so that it doesn't add a number to the end?

    be aware though, if you ever change the name of the subforum you will break any links to it.
    the beauty of the numbers is that when they are used, they are the only thing that matters so far as links go. try it. notice all these links direct to the same subforum, no matter what:

    Thanks a bunch. Can't believe I missed that portion... Still, I don't like having random "meaningless" numbers at the end. Would be much better if I could number them myself.

    However, I should have mentioned this before (just thought it would be a universal fix). It seems that this numbering thing occurs in category nodes as well. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't see a similar field for it. Any way I can remove the number from category nodes?

    EDIT: Random thought:"Wow." More I use XenForo, the deeper I'm falling in love.

    Not a problem; thanks a lot for the help. Hopefully someone will know how to take them off of the category nodes too. :LOL:
