You can't change the location where Kunena is installed. The changes you need to make are discussed in Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) . If you set up Joomla SEO properly, if you use the standard Kunena menu (see How do I restore my Kunena menu? , then everything will work for you as you want it.

Hi i may be incredibly stupid, but how can i shorten the URL from:

www.imaginecraft.net/index.php/forum/

to

www.imaginecraft.net/forum/

I've been looking around what seems like forever, i want the URL to be permanently like that, not just a redirect. It just looks cleaner. Please help with this. Everyone else seems to have it apart from me lol.

Thanks in advance.

Hello,

What you want should be the default if you turn on both the Joomla Search Engine Friendly URLs and the Kunena Search Engine Friendly URLs. This is assuming you're not using any 3rd party SEO extensions. Also, your menu items need to be organized properly for this to work. Ideally, your Kunena Configuration Report would give us a better idea of what might be misconfigured on your site. See the instructions at the top of this page for more information.

G'day, gyounger1, and welcome to Kunena.

The answer to your first question is to read Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) in the Wiki and implement accordingly.

The answer to your second question is to make the forum menu item in your main menu the default one; see How to make Kunena menu item the "default" one?

When the URL ist part of joomla the error site 404.html is working when the URL is not compleat or wrong, when the URL beginns with an KUNEA link and ends wrong... "www.stoma-ok.at/index.php/forum-2/ind(...last part is missing), this 404.html is not called. Then i only get the Error-message from the appache-server "404 - Kunena function "ind" not found"

running Joomla 2.5 and want to install K 1.7.2

In the install guide, one of the requirements is to implement Joomla SEO.
docs.kunena.org/index.php/Search_engine_optimization_%28SEO%29

On step 2, it saids I have to select Yes of Use Apache mod_rewrite.

On my backend, I don't see a "Use Apache mod_rewrite". Instead, I see a "Use URL Rewriting", which also requires htaccess.txt to be renamed to .htaccess.

Is "Use Apache mod_rewrite" and "Use URL Rewriting" the same thing when it comes to Joomla 2.5?

Thank you

Thank you for your question.

Although it is not a requirement for Kunena that you must implement Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) , it is highly recommended that, if you want your Joomla site to run smoothly (and take advantage of SEF URLs) that you should implement Joomla SEO in the way we've advised.

The information in the Wiki article was based on J! 1.5 and J! 1.6 It would be a good idea if someone - probably me, I suppose - updated the information for J! 2.5.

In J! 2.5 the Global Configuration options are as shown below:



Thanks for drawing this to my attention. It looks like the guys from Joomla changed the label Use Apache mod_rewrite to Use URL Rewriting. Makes more sense that they did this too; less confusing ... or is it? :whistle:

EDIT: I have updated the Wiki article Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) ! :cheer:

Replied by contender on topic forum menu alias
Just installed Kunena and I noticed the forum menu item alias is: 2012-04-25-14-24-24
which is completely different from the naming scheme the other menu items joomla has automatically created for me.

When making it blank, apparently joomla is supposed to make it SEF, and it still comes back with the same thing. Is this crazy alias more SEF than if I just named it "forum" instead?

Thanks
