Forum URL

  • Morshed Alam



    I am a new user of Bbpress. Currently I have the latest version of WordPress as well as Bbpress. But I am facing an irritating problem. I have created a forum for my site: .I like the url to be . I searched everywhere and found that many a one tried to provide a solution. They made plugins and code for .htaccess file. But all of them make some issues like admin link’s working issue and extra slash in the url.

    In a nutshell I am very depressed. Because I am not an expert and found no perfect help anywhere. So I would like to request to John James Jacoby, please consider spending a little time to give us instruction about how to stop Archive Slugs and Single Slugs appearing in the url.

    Looking forward to hearing from you.
