    Of course a time machine would resolve all my issues, but that time has passed.

    So, I have the following 4.2.x installation

    domain.com/forum/blogs/

    I would Like to create :

    doman.com/news/

    I was hoping a simple rewite would work but sadly no..
    SEMrush
    RewriteRule ^news/(.*)$ /forum/blogs/$1 [L]

    Any suggestions (other than moving forum to root) are greatly appreciated!

    Thanks
    Chris

    I think you would have to change a setting in the vBulletin options to do this - can't remember which one exactly though.

    However, if I am remembering incorrectly then there isn't actually any way to do this, as the blogs need to pull files from the local server, and use local links to do so (as in they don't use the full links, meaning if the site was at http://www.google.com/blog the file would be pulled from http://www.google.com/blog/file.php). As such, the site would break.

    I'm pretty certain that's how it works, anyway ;)
