Domain to Forum


#1

Hey everyone,

I set up a domain (.com) that domain when entered to go directly into the forum. I put the domain to redirect to domain.com/forum and it doesnt work.

thanks for you help

Setting the domain to redirect sets the whole domain to redirect, not just the front page. You’ll need to set the domain back to “fully hosted” to have a site there, then set up an index page or .htaccess to make the redirect happen.

The easiest way would be to actually make an index file or .htaccess that redirects domain.com to domain.com/forum.

[code]

My Awesome Forum [/code]

Then just put that as index.php in the root html folder, and off you go.

Unless you’re saying you want to use domain.com as the URL for your forums. Which, depending on your forum software, may require you to move it.
