Changing BOARD INDEX link

Post by -=TJL=- Staff » Thu Feb 05, 2009 12:37 am

Hi, I am trying to change the "Board Index" button at the top left of the theme, and anything to do with the main index.php to forums.php. This is so i can keep my normal website index.html as the front page of the website. If anyone can help me out by telling me how to change it or where to change it, it would be gratefully appreciated.

Thanks,

Link to board so we have the full info, please?

And, reading closer, are you attempting to change name of the file index.php to forums.php? Or simply to change the location to which the logo link directs?

Ah, well that's a bit different. ;)

If you only want to be sure that index.html is the main page of your site as opposed to index.php, have you thought of simply making a .htaccess file to do so? Something like this in your root would cause the main page to be default, and would be a bit simpler than your current approach:

Code: Select all

DirectoryIndex index.html index.php

dont mean to ask a dumb question but um where exactly do i put this....in the template right

let me go a little bit more into detail on this...

Changed index.php to forums.php
Main site: tjlgc.comze.com will be home page
Forum: I need everything to work around the forums being named forums.php
Problems: After you log in, and it redirects you it shuts down and says error and if you click "Board Index" at any time, it goes to the same error.
