no, i just wanted to be able to type the address to my domain and my blog would be there. then i would have a link on my blogroll to my forum.
once the blog and forum were set up, if I wanted to view the blog I simply went to the address www.tswa.us/blog and if I wanted to go to the forum, I used the address www.tswa.us/tswa_forum. All was well. Then I wanted my domain to point to the blog (and I already had the blog point to the forum, successfully)
So I went to the admin panel and changed my domain pointing from tswa.us to tswa.us/blog and all I could see was the home page content no side bar and without css and forum has not been seen since. So I tried the other settings, redirect, all of them and I kept getting an error...can't redirect to yourself.
then i changed the setting back to the way it was before i went to the settings and my site was never the same.
now support has revived my blog and it my blog is at the domain address, but the forum would never display again.
i ended up creating a subdomain and installing a forum there and linking to that via the blogroll.
this should have worked though right ?
i am now having some problems with the forum. like i was able to set it up and add categories, but now i get a page not displayed when i try to log in...have opened a ticket on this.
