    Hello all,

    Actually I have a wordpress installed in my website i.e. http://www.healthwhoop.com/ (in wp) now I have created forum in http://www.healthwhoop.com/community/ but now problem is that it has index.php extension and runs on both www and no www and if i enable SEO url's then my thread url's take me to home page of wordpress, we have tried many things from htacess file but in vain.
    One of my developer friend told me that i will have to modify "Nginx config" file which is not possible in shared hosting, i have raised ticket in xenforo but licence have expired. I tried thread in xenforo i.e. https://xenforo.com/community/threads/how-create-forum-in-wordpress-website.120915/
    SEMrush
    But in vain, if anyone here can help me fix this i am ready to pay 5$ to him.

    Thanks

    For SEO purpose, it is always better to use a subdomain for the forum as it is possible for the forum to have spam links and spam messages.
    This might affect your WordPress blog too in a long run.
    As what @Furquan Ahmed has suggested, community.healthwhoop.com is a better choice.

    Sounds like your WP htaccess is overriding XF's, causing friendly URLs to not be matched, which by default will forward you to the main index. Check this article on how to have htaccess "ignore" a directory.
