  • [Resolved] Redirect in vb 5.3.3

    Hi,
    vb Version 5.3.3.
    how do I forward to a certain category when the Fourm is called in the forum?

    There is only one category in the forum.
    If the user accesses the forum via http://test.die_seite. de/forum533/ the page with the last entries is displayed, we would like to
    but that the page with http://test.die_seite.de/forum533/forum/profi-forum will be displayed when the forum is opened.

    I tried this setting via the "Forum-URL", i. e. Admincp -> Settings -> Options -> Homepage-Title / URL / Contact Info -> Field "Fourm-URL".
    The URL http://test.die_seite.de/forum533/ on http://test.die_seite.de/forum533/forum/profi-forum.
    This caused the forum to be shot down.

    Does anyone have an idea how to customize the forwarding?

    You would have to do this before the route is sent to vBulletin. So you would do it in your virtual host configuration, .htaccess, or web.config file. There are thousands of tutorials covering this on the internet.

      Forwarding via. htaccess is the only option?
      In vb version 4.2.5 we could build a plugi that has taken over this function, is this no longer possible in vb version 5.3.3?

        No, that's not possible. vBulletin 5 is a completely different product.

            I have one more question.
            In our forum we only have one canal.
            When opening the forum, the channel with ID 14 should be displayed as start page.

            If a post is called in the forum now, the URL looks like this

            http://test.die_seite. de/forum533/forum/the_site. de_forum/346789-test_set

            However, we want the URL to look like this

            http://test.die_seite. com/forum533/346789-test setset

            Is it possible to change the order of the channels with board means of vbulletin?
            Should / do you have to move the contributions?

              It's not possible to alter the URL structure of vBulletin, no.

              You can however set the whole site to use 'Route by Node', which will make all URLs use the format /node/xxxxx.
              You can see this in use on my demo site: https://www.talknewsuk.com
              This is the only alternative URL structure available in vB5, there are no others.

                Okay, Route by Node I want to put it into practice.
                Can you please send me a link to a tutorial on how to Route by Node implement or integrate in the forum.

                  Here is the tutorial on turning on Route by Node.

                  In your AdminCP go to Settings -> Options -> Site Name / URL / Contact Details. Set Route Channels and Conversations by Node ID to Yes. Click save at the bottom of the page.

                  You can also change the URL of any page, including channels, by going to that location and clicking Edit Page in Site Builder. Immediately, click "Save Page" and change the URL to what you want it to be. However, if you set URL A to redirect to URL B and URL B to redirect to URL A later, you can get an infinite redirect loop.
