How to prevent bb_repermalink from calling a 404
I need to create a few urls from my forum root at /community like so:
/community/forums/ – shows just a simple list of all forums
/community/leaderboards/ -custom functionality
/community/achievements/ – more custom functionality
It’s easy enough to achieve this with a query string and if statements in front-page.php, but I’m trying to use .htaccess to achieve this like so:
RewriteRule ^forums/$ index.php?view=forums [L,QSA]
I was getting the bbpress 404 page until I drilled down into bb-admin/functions.bb-core.php and changed line 667 from
$issue_404 = true;
$issue_404 = false
It worked fine but I’m not comfortable changing the core code like that, as it’s indicitave that I’m doing something wrong – but what exactly? What should I change about my approach to get the page to serve correctly?
