How to make homepage show forums index after removing portal addon?

Discussion in 'XenForo' started by WebDev Solutions, Jan 20, 2015.

    Hi,
    SEMrush
    We have removed the Portal addon from the forum, and we want the forums index to load here: http://onefootballforum.co.uk/ however it just says the page cannot be found. The forums are located here: http://onefootballforum.co.uk/index.php?forums/

    How can I fix the broken homepage and make sure it directs straight through to the forums index?

    Many thanks for any assistance..

    ehh will check real fast. I thought I had the answer but I just did this recently.

    EDIT: Simply change your board URL

    Admin CP -> Home -> Options -> Basic Board Information -> Board URL

    Hi, change it to what sorry? I'm sure I tried changing it with no luck, should I be changing it to http://onefootballforum.co.uk/index.php?forums/ ?


    Edit, if so, that URL did not fix it as it didn't work. Any ideas?

    Thanks for your response!

    No you want to change it to where you want it to appear. http://onefootballforum.co.uk I am http://hitching.it/forums/ because that is where I want the board index for instance.( I have wordpress in the root in my case) Also, it clearly states under that field "The primary URL to your board. Do not include a trailing "/" or "index.php". The URL should look similar to this: http://www.example.com/forum

    In your case the first link I pasted in this response.
