Specific forum landing page


Active member
I'm trying to make a specific forum my forum landing page. So when a user clicks on the forum navigation it opens directly into the specific forum.

I've searched for this specific idea and surprisingly could not find it.

You mean when they click on Home? You could add the forum URL to Index Page Route in Admin CP Options >Basic Options.

Or use that URL in any navigation tab

So I neglected to give an update on this, things went sideways at work.

I can easily enough change the index page URL and function as desired. Changing the navbar tab not so much. It adds /-/ characters to the URL on the browser's side when clicking the configured tab, different from what is placed inside the cp.

That doesn't sound right.

Creating a nav tab for a forum or any other node/page shouldn't change the URL.

How have you set it up?

Right now I have security on it. The only thing I'm trying to do is change the navigation URL from {{ link('forums') }} to the actual forum page I want which would be {{ link('forums/entries.23/') }}

The only other custom config is the display condition : $xf.visitor.user_id
