New to doing things on my own

hello all

i have had a forum for a while and now i have expanded into a few other sites and will need some help

what forum software is this btw?

anyhow my first question is i have a url that keeps redirecting to another url when i need it to go somewhere else. i have checked in the admin panel on the settings and if i redirect it to the url i want which is what-i-am-redirecting/index.php it gives me a forward error like its creating an infinite forward loop or something… maybe because /index.php is forwarded to .com?

anyhow sorry it proabably sounds confusing
