    Vanilla requires using pretty urls: especially the Rich Editor and the API rely on it. I bet that problem is solved as soon as you have set that up 👍️

    Hello @R_J i appreciated the response. I used to install the forum at my subdomain and the API is running in my installation.

    p.s: am not sure if this the API are you saying but this is related to the plugins.

    Thank you so much

    Your screenshot above shows a link to "example.com/index.php?p=discussions" while it should be only "example.com/discussions"

    If you look at your dashboard you will find in the section "Technical" the item "APIv2". That was what I was refering to.

    You can find some information on that below that link: https://docs.vanillaforums.com/developer/installation/self-hosting/#from-vanilla-2-3-or-earlier

    There's a easy way to fix or to make my url pretty? some of the discussion are too technical for me :)

    Thank you so much @R_J

    Open /conf/config.php and find the line with $Configuration['Garden']['RewriteUrls'] = false; 

    If there is such a line, change false to true

    If there is no such line, simply append it as the last line (make sure you copy the complete line from "$" to ";")
