    Yo where do I upload this to on the server? :confused:
  6. Liam W

    Normal place :p

    Upload the contents of the UPLOAD/library folder to the xenForo library folder, just like any other addon :p

    Wow good job! Okay question. If I do not have multiple domain SSL, will I still be able to use this with SSL?

    I only have a single domain SSL. I don't care about the username.forum.com option, the forum.com/username is fine.

    Does the forum.com/username format require multidomain SSL?

    Liam W Well-Known Member

    Nope, the latter doesn't require multi ssl - it's on the main domain.

    Technically, if you only redirect to SSL after this addon redirects the subdomain, it'll work, but that's a bit more complex ;)

    Okay great. I do not want or need the username.forum.com option. I want to be able to use SSL for one domain only cause that's what I have. If I install SSL on my site again, will it cause the multidomain subdomain SSL errors since this addon allows for username.forum.com? Can't we just turn off that function or disallow that?

    If people go to that, and you redirect to ssl, and you have the wildcard dns setup, then yes - ssl errors may appear.

    Easy solution: Don't enable wildcard dns, and don't mention the subdomain one ;)

    In "Vanity Name" your description says: "If this is set, you can link to your profile from / or .."

    So I should just change that phrase (is that a phrase?) to "Set the name for your profile page. For example. site.com/username"

    It's a phrase, just change it :)

    Do we need to do anything else other than install to get this working? I have two problems:

    1) I put my vanity name and it doesn't work
    2) when i try to change my vanity name it gives me an error: "someone has already chosen that vanity name, please choose a different one!"

    Could we have an option to reserve names for staff & future using?

    Will be in next version.

    Has someone chosen the name you're changing it to? What did you change it to...?

    When you say it doesn't work, how doesn't it work? Did you go to /<vanityname>?

    It gives me a requested page could not be found error message when i visit my vanityname page. Do I need to have anything special in my htaccess file?

    You are including the forum directory in the URL right?

    Is it a xf error or an apache error?

    I suspect it's under the community directory. If it's in the root, that doesn't work either, you can try it .
