Do you mean the portal as a start page?
Open root/htaccess add this at the end:

Code: Select all

DirectoryIndex app.php/portal index.php index.html index.htm

Hi. when I try this it breaks on me.
DirectoryIndex phpbb3/app.php/portal index.php index.html index.htm

Any ideas? I am converting my wordpress side articles into the forum side right now so I will need to figure this out. Thank you!

Here is a pic of broken view.

Your .htaccess is located in the directory phpbb3
An alternative would be this:
Create a file called portal.php with the following content:

Code: Select all

<?php
header("Location: https://viragohelp.com/phpbb3/app.php/portal");
exit;
Load this file into your forum root (where the config.php is located).


Open: root/.htaccess
Add this at the very end:

Code: Select all

DirectoryIndex portal.php index.php index.html index.htm

I actually tried that yesterday and it worked! Thank you very much. My website is barely covering itself but I went ahead and sent 20 bux to board 3. I donated before but it was few years back. This extension in my opinion is one of the best for phpbb. I have another question but I will make a new post for it. Thank you!
