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:
header("Status: 301 Moved Permanently", false, 301);
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…
