How to change the homepage link URL?

I have my forums location at www.example.com/forums

When someone clicks on the "home" link, they are taken to the forum home page (www.example.com/forums). Is there anyway to change then URL location? I'd like the home link to go to my main website's homepage (www.example.com).

    You need to create a custom theme for that. See the docs for instructions: https://docs.vanillaforums.com/developer/addons/theme-quickstart/

    That theme needs only the addon.json file and you have to copy the applications/dashboard/views/default.master.tpl to your own themes subfolder /views

    THen edit this copy and search for <strong class="SiteTitle"><a href="{link path="/"}">{logo}</a></strong>, it should be line 10.
    Replace {link path="/"} with the desired link.
