Any way to change forum base URL?

  • zgreen


    I posted this question yesterday but it is nowhere to be found. Anyway, a second try:

    I just installed buddypress 1.2 and enabled forum using the “2-click” bbpress integration. However, since my WP 2.9.1 (not MU) was installed in the “blog” folder, now my forum URL is shown as:

    Is there a way to make it

    From reading on this board, it seems like the only way is to install a second, standalone bbpress in the root directory. Has anyone made it work without the second bbpress? This would be extremely helpful.

    Thanks a lot!

    Because you have WP setup in, this isn’t really possible.

    It may be possible to use some rewrite rules in .htaccess, but I’m not sure.

    Keep in mind that if you install a standalone version of bbPress, you’ll essentially have two forums unless you:

    A) Disable the forum component in BP, or

    B) hide the references to the link.




    Thanks for the reply. I was afraid that a standalone bbpress is the only option, but was hoping for an easier way to avoid the complexity. All the talks about bbpress eventually evolving into a plugin anyway makes me hesitant too. I might end up keeping the /blog/forum/ setup.
