incorrect/old forum link names

  • i’m having a small problem with pretty permalinks. when i first created a particular forum, i named it ‘general discussion’ but later i changed the forum name to ‘sk6ers talk’. the problem is, the forum link is still /forum/general-discussion when it should be /forum/sk6ers-talk. i’m having this issue with a few other forum names as well. any thoughts on how to correct this? thank you!

  • Outchy, I had this problem. There’s no way to change this in the admin, you have to use phpmyadmin or another database tool.

    Go into your database, find the bb_forum table and Browse it. Do you see the field for “forum_slug”? Find the row for the forum you want want to change, and change the “forum_slu” field from “general-discussion” to “sk6ers-talk”. I did this with no ill effect on my forum.

    wow, okay. thank you very much!

    that worked perfectly, thanks :)
