Main site elsewhere?

Thanks, I thought, this is exactly what we need. We have purchased a license for the "domain.tld" website on which our non-invision site is located.

So how can it be set that there is non-invision page on domain.tld, but we want to use invision pages such as e.g. https://domain.tld/news/ or https://domain.tld/blogs/ etc. ? Is there a manual for this setting?

In order to do this, the software must run on the same physical server.  

So for example, you could have Wordpress installed within domain.tld/news (or just /) and IPB installed in domain.tld/forums.  Those would all be installed within the same server in the same virtual host , etc.  

If the news or blog site are on different physical servers, you would need to use subdomains.  

This is not an IPB limitation...  it's a limitation of DNS itself.  DNS says domain.tld goes to a specific server (such as www.domain.tld).  Once it's at the server, it handles all paths below it (such as /news/ or /blogs/).

Technically there are ways to work around this if you're using a CDN as a proxy...  as it could be POSSIBLY configured to go to a different origin based on path matches, but that is WAAAAAY outside of the scope of this discussion.  🙂

Our landing page is in /www/ directory and Community installation in /www/invison/ directory. So what sence has Main site elsewhere? in this case?

The setting there does the same as I mentioned in my original response, regardless of situation here. You would set that if your site is elsewhere so that the JSON-LD markup output on the page shows your main site to be at a different URL. There isnt anything else that setting does

If your main site is www.domain.com and IPB is installed in www.domain.com/invision… clicking the home button in the bread crumbs for example would lead you back to domain.com/invision because that is the default “root” where it was installed. 

This lets you change domain.com/invision to just www.domain.com for those links. That’s it. Nothing more and nothing less. It does not move your data or change settings on the server itself.

Actually it wouldnt change those either. It's the JSON-LD markup only
