single forum

  • Hi,

    Does somebody know a way to work with a single forum and have the page-function working on the frontpage?

    I need a way without redirecting to forum.php

  • Nobody with any idaes ? How do other people work with only one forum?

    It really isn’t that simple and I don’t think anyone has attempted it yet. It would require your ‘front-page’ template to work much like your forum.php file and off the top of my head, I can’t think what exactly would be the best way to do that. Anyone else have an idea?

    You could just replace the index.php with a page that redirects to the forum page. You could probably also add the hot tags or anything else to the forum page template if you wanted them.

    Problem is that i don’t like redirects for several reasons; nor do search-engines like them.

    The only problem seems to be in calling the pagenavigation on the frontpage. There must be a way to handle this.

    Maybe a plugin required?

    Search engines have no problems with 301 redirects.

    You could save this as your index.php and not have any trouble:

    <?php
    header("Status: 301 Moved Permanently", false, 301);
    header("Location: http://www.yourdomain.com/forum.php");
    exit();
    ?>

    What are the reasons you don’t like redirects?

    Thanks, but are you shure chrishajer?

    I don’t like redirects because i believe that a clean site structure is always better. However, this is not based on proven knowledge…
