Removing 'index.php' from URL


New member

I am considering to purchase Xenforo.
I tried demo site.
The url always includes 'index.php'.

Why is the 'index.php' included?
Is it a default style of Xenforo?

Could the 'index.php' be removed?
How to remove it?
Could I get free official support for it?

There is an option to enable “Full friendly URLs” which you can find in the control panel. This removes the index.php part of the URL.

It will work on the demo but may require some server configuration on your own server. Details for that can be found in the manual.
