Why do you want to do this?

There is nothing wrong with having the community suite in the root. It’s usually the best choice. 
With 4.x, as soon as you make another app but “forums” the default app, you will automatically have a virtual folder called /forums/ without moving anything.

Yesterday we changed the main URL for our website and our forums.  So now our forums are at: http://forum.newdomain.org.au (this was a branding / historical thing).

Took me a while (wish I had found this topic earlier :) ), and finally have our forums working on the new domain... with I think now only one issue (thanks for the heads up on the sitemap location DesignzShop!).

Issue:  In some places we get little squares instead of images.  I have attached screenshots of some here. 
Does anyone know how I fix this?

Warm Regards

Thanks for replying so soon!

Our forums are at http://forum.dnet.org.au/

I read your note about clearing the cache in your post listing 5 things to do above (12 March), and searched for 'Cache' in my ACP and found the list below.
Current settings are the default settings - I don't think we have ever changed these (because I am only pretending to be our tech person as we have noone else ;-) ):

Cache Page output for guests:  30 seconds

Caching Method: None

Cache Remote Images: This took me to 'Posting' settings, and I couldn't find any reference to 'cache' there.  Closest I found was 'Allow Remote Images' and this is set to 'green'.  Only other item under 'Remote Images' here is 'Serve local images from server' and this is set to 'grey'(off).



PS I have temporarily enabled 'Guests' to view :)
