URLs including ?p=
Can anyone help me with the problem of URLs including ?p=
Fresh install of Vanilla 2.8
I have gone through the suggestions here (and shown below): https://docs.vanillaforums.com/developer/installation/self-hosting/#from-vanilla-2-3-or-earlier
If your forum still uses URLs including
?p=, support for this URL structure has ended. Follow these steps to switch to the simpler format:
- Confirm your server is setup to handle rewrites. On Apache, using the
.htaccessfile provided will accomplish this. Additional setup is required on nginx and other platforms.
- Test whether it is working by visiting
/discussions- if you see a discussions list (rather than a 404), it is likely setup correctly.
/conf/config.phpand find the line with
$Configuration['Garden']['RewriteUrls'] = false;and delete the entire line.
Your site should immediately switch to “pretty” URL paths instead of using the ‘p’ parameter. If there is a problem, re-add the line to your config and do further troubleshooting.
None of those helped. The forum url is https://treecrops.org.nz/forum/
