Redirecting my hosted vanilla to my embed location

edited November 2010 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8
I would like to redirect all visits to my hosted location to where I have vanilla embedded. I could have sworn I saw some documentation about setting that path in a vanilla settings page but I can't seem to find it now. Is there a simple dashboard setting for this or is it a .htaccess thing? If so what is the line I need to insert into my .htaccess?

  • Dang, this is exactly the section I remember seeing and yet for some reason I still can't find it. My embed options page (/plugin/embed) just has a theme, embed code and plugins. Just in case I'm blind, how do I get to that options page?

    Hm... if that box isnt showing up on /plugin/embed.... maybe @Mark should look at this :p

    That box doesn't show up until the forum is viewed through the embedded page. The first time it is viewed, it sets the "Remote Url" value in Vanilla. If you are viewing your embedded forum and it is not saving that value, it could be because config settings aren't saving properly...

    @Joel - If you want, you can shoot me an email with your forum's location & admin login and I'll take a look: mark at

    Actually, a better solution is to just apply the settings yourself directly into your configuration file. Here is how the settings appear in my conf/config.php file:
    $Configuration['Plugins']['EmbedVanilla']['RemoteUrl'] = '';
    $Configuration['Plugins']['EmbedVanilla']['ForceRemoteUrl'] = TRUE;
  • Cool that worked. Thanks again. Oh btw, Branden Hall says 'Hi' Mark.
