hello.

I just setup'd forum.-mydomain-.com

Is there anyway I can make the old original eg -myforum-.darkbb.com to redirect to forum.-mydomain-.com ?

Thanks.

Look.

myforum.darkbb.com had an external adress forum.mydomain.com added.

How would i now make myforum.darkbb.com not function and only forum.mydomain.com work?

edit: like making old myforum.darkbb.com redirect instantly to forum.mydomain.com?

Ok thank you.

You have to change your forum's address in the Admin Panel :

General >> Forum >> Forum address >> Personnalized domain name

Hope that will help. I can't help you more if I don't have your forum's URL Wink

I have already changed it. I just want the old one to redirect to forum.mydomain.com. You have my forum name in message I sent you earlier.

OK thank you.

Your forum responds on the personnalized domain name you configured and the base URL. The base URL can't be removed if that's what you asked for.
You can't change it since you use an external domain name.

The only way to have your forum only on the domain name is to buy it via Forumotion. Smile

I dont want it removed as I could already think of it not being removen. I want it to redirect to the external url I added.

mwii The domain name you added already redirects to your forum. And the base URL redirects to your forum also. I don't understand what you mean...

If i type forum.mydomain.com I get redirected to the forums.

If i type myforum.darkbb.com I get redirected to the forums aswell, BUT I dont want it to do be functional as that. I want it to redirect to forum.mydomain.com. The forum will not be accessable through myforum.darkbb.com.

Hello Very Happy

I really don't understand sorry... scratch

If your domain redirects to your forum and your base URL also, the result is the same ! I don't understand what you mean when you say that you want your base URL to redirect to your domain name... Your domain name actually redirect to your forum.

Anyway, you have to give your domain name to all your members and your base URL will become useless. Wink

OK, you can't.
Your forum's base URL is associated to your forum and will always be functional. Smile
