Awesome. I have been able to achieve the original objection.
Now, I just need to find a way to use the article forum as index and have the home/index page not showing that long domain.std/forum/home/ url.

Why is XF installed in /forum if there is nothing in the root?
It was installed before XF started so it was put in the /forum/ folder and we had some other CMS on the roof.
Thinking about moving XF to roof and need to investigate any potential issues taking down the huge site.
