Xenforo working perfectly in subdirectory until installed Wordpress

    I'm loving Xenforo! (and spent a good penny) But, I just installed wordpress (Avada theme) to run most of my site. Since, when returning to forum it looks fine until a forum/catagory is chosen then it returns a 404.

    Please help!

    "click members if still in maintenance mode"

    Maybe due to Wordpress's htaccess

    I don't know how to change the .htaccess file for wp. Xenforo, NP. Where should I look? What should I change?

    It's located in the root directory. You can open it in any basic text editor (such as Notepad).

    I really don't know much about htaccess but this might work:

    After RewriteEngine on, add

    RewriteCond %{REQUEST_URI} "/yourxenforofolder/"
      RewriteRule (.*) $1 [L]

    You do realise that site you are linking to is a pirate site?

    No clue. Sorry. Should I be worried about the fix?

    I was just searching for an answer to my problem.

    I haven't clicked the URL so not sure what the thread is about but in general it's recommended to not visit/use pirate sites.

    What is a pirate site? What should I be looking for? How can I tell?

    I'm fairly new at this.

    A site running without having paid for a license. The most noticeable thing is the copyright being modified or removed from the footer.

    If a site (as the one you've linked to) allows downloads of XenForo, it is a site to be avoided.
