Wrong domain name ?

Post by Antihero on August 19th 2011, 2:42 pm

I got my domain name to work. But when i access the domain it redirects to "myforum.forummotions.com"
I want it to say "mydomain.dk/forum/..."

Is this possible?

It is indeed possible, Antihero! Smile

For this, we will have to setup force URL redirection. To do this, go to your administration panel (the link is located on the footer/bottom of your forum/website).

You will then have to click the General tab, and then click "Forum Address" (located under forum, the first block). Once there, click the "Personalized Domain" tab. Click "Yes" to Force the URL redirection.

Now, if people type in the forumotion url, they will be redirected to your domain Smile

Hope this helps.

click the "Personalized Domain" tab. Click "Yes" to Force the URL redirection.
I can't seem to find this.
I just says:
Personalized domain name
You already have an external personalized domain name for your forum. You can modify it below by respecting the configuration of the domain name.

Did you buy the domain from another domain provider other than Forumotion? If so, that's why.

Follow the instructions below "Configuration of an external domain name."
