I am wondering if anyone is able to help me achieve the following.. I would like to install XF in the base directory but re-route the forums to /forums/ so that i can create a custom home page that will be displayed when clicking the home tab.
Now i am not great at explaining what i mean.. But if you are familiar with the addon "xenPorta" (the 8wayrun.com portal).. that addon manages to re-route the forums to / forums without physically installing XF in a sub directory...
This is the URL structure i am trying to achieve:
hxxp://mysite.com/ <-- Custom home page with the XF wrapper.
hxxp://mysite.com/forums/ XF Forums will look like this.
hxxp://mysite.com/help/ <--- normal XF page / tab url when XF is installed in the base dir.
Basically i can manage what i require with a existing addon but as the XF index.php file is needed i can not create a custom front page that calls my custom front page..
Really appreciate any assistance on this topic, Any advice / help / assistance will be greatly appreciated.
The are several portals / addons for XF that can manage this.. I just don't seem to be able to mange to work out the correct method to re route the forums to /forums/..
I am using a script / have manged to find a addon that allows me to create a custom front page within the XF wrapper however to make a front page with this requires XF to be installed in a sub-directory in order to work.
