XF 1.2 Route clash?


Well-known member
I wondered what happens when two routes from different addons clash?

I had XenPorta installed using the portal route but just installed simpleportal which uses the same route.

I then disabled simpleportal, expecting xenporta to reappear at the index but it says the portal/ route doesn't exist.

Only one route of a particular name can exist, so the one that is created later is kept. (Routes are re-added on upgrades, so the last one to be installed or upgraded would own that route.)

I've had to reinstall xenporta and it's back to normal.

Can you force the route without having to reinstall/upgrade?
