I'm happy to be able to do this, but it means that I cannot access my forum mainpage.

My forum mainpage (example): www.example.forumotion.com/index.htm

If I set a homepage, that URL will display a homepage and not the board index (www.example.forumotion.com)


How would I change this?

But can the problem be fixed?
It's rather annoying.

you have to buy domain name and set it as a home page. redirect that domain to your html page , but make sure you buy domain somewhere else otherwise it will not work . if you buy it here then I don't think it will let you set redirection

You was obviously wrong seen as someone else has just posted about this and they have done it without a domain name

U can have a html page as a home page as long as it has a link to forumotion. I have. also you can add a code that makes it automaticly redirect to your forums page

Ok people just to clarify

When you set an html page as your homepage

Your homepage will be - www.your_usual_address.forumotion.com (Your usual one)

Your forum Address will be: - www.your_usual_address.forumotion.com/forum.htm (Your usual one with /forum.htm at the end of it)

If you want an example check my homepage url out, then check my forum url out

Regards
