With IP.Board becoming 'just another' product under the IPS Community Suite umbrella, will there be out-of-the-box support to put IP.Board in site.com/forums, IP.Nexus in site.com/store, IP.Content in site.com/portal, etc, instead of having everything default under /forums? It always bugged me that all these great extra add-ons are falling under /forums unless one is willing to do various workaround methods.
Just wondering, but I think the change is a logical one, and would be appreciated by many of us.
Keep up the great work!
We are evaluating structure for 4.0 yet and cannot say for certain. Any functionality improvements in this regard will need to be balanced with SEO needs related to changing URLs.
You guys have done a pretty good job when it comes to SEO (i.e, supporting 301 redirects when you first started offering FURLs). I would hope that it wouldn't be too difficult to implement 301 redirects when the old URL space is accessed.
Do appreciate the response tho, very excited about what's next!
/gallery is under forums tho, as is blogs, downloads (and store by default as well).
the default application at default is forums, thus, the 'app' marker is not needed.
the default application is easily changeable.
with a default app of gallery, gallery would be at site root with ipb installed there.
Several years ago, I actually had blogs in the root directory, but then the structure of the Blog component was changed where this was no longer supported. My site is 10 years old, so that's why things are where they are. I'll have to check how to move blogs, gallery etc back into root, as I was not aware this could be easily done now.
When you install the add-ons, they all instruct you to upload the content to the forum directory, so that probably added to my confusion.
