autoitscript.com/forum/forum...why?

6 posts in this topic

Hi,

It's very strange how this forum work.

In the index of the forum we have:

autoitscript.com/forum/index.php

But in every section:

autoitscript.com/forum/forum/1-announcements-and-site-news/

autoitscript.com/forum/forum/2-general-help-and-support/

etc.

Why this choice? Why repeat the same word twice?

Is only a curiosity :D

Why not? That's the way the forum software does it. If you want to know why, ask Invision Power.

Because the forum is hosted at "www.autoitscript.com/forum/" and the board uses "forum" again. It doesn't know about the previous one.

It's because that part of the url is used to say what part of the board you are in, it's not always "forum". And because I didn't install the forum at the root of the site it can look strange.

For example, when you are in a topic it's /topic.

You could always rig the site to have an alias such as autoitscript.com/forums/ resolving to autoitscript.com/forum/forum/ or something of the like.


My UDFs are generally for me. If they aren't updated for a while, it means I'm not using them myself. As soon as I start using them again, they'll get updated.

The URLs originally read something to the effect of http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.php?topic=148083
