forum landing page


Recommended Posts

so my IPBoard is installed for long forgotten historic reasons into /forums/ folder.

Would it be possible to use Invision Pages and to a page in / (root) folder somehow? I do have Pages installed and works. If so, can somebody help me set it up?

conf_global.php has full url in it: /forums/

 

 

The custom page in / (root) folder would contain some base information before login into board, available to everyone.

There is some trickery that you can do in htaccess but it’s not elegant. I would just move the entire install up a folder to / and then inside of the old forums issue an auto redirect to the root folder with the same path. 

If you need help with a sample redirect I can post something when I get home.

Well, I thought of this, but I would like all friendly URLs to remain as they were. Moreover this exact solution I am looking for now was working on old 3.1.4 forums. I had an index.php from Invision in root folder that I assume was redirecting to /forums/ but cannot understand how to replicate it now.

You cannot move the site and keep the same URLs. That's simply not possible. You could possibly redirect to the new locations from those old friendly URLs. 

If you were using pages at root, that is something that has not been in use for a substantial amount of time unfortunately.
