Using Root as the index to /community


Wordpress has a feature where if you have your WP installed in you can still type to display your site. This is done by copying the .htaccess and index.php files to root and then modifying a line of text in the index.php file.

Is there a way to do this in XF? So if I visit it will display the index to the forums that are installed in
Let me rephrase my question - what I want is when someone types it will automatically land them in the directory path of

I'm sure it's an issue with my .htaccess file which is currently set to

RewriteEngine on RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST} ^mysite\.com$ RewriteRule (.*)$1 [R=301,L] RewriteRule ^$ forums/forums/latest-news.18/ [L]

This is causes a redirect to the board index, which is helpful, but I'd love to get it to drop the visitor directly into the articles forum with the root domain name.

Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?
Basically I just want the news articles forum to be the default landing page when someone goes to my website because I don't WANT to use Wordpress or something similar.
