Multi-forums - Tosfera - 10-19-2013

Hey guys,

I'm trying to use 1 backend for more then 1 forum. This may sound crazy but I don't want 3 different backends for 3 forums ( as an example ). the moderation of my work should be clean, easy to find and say the #%#$%# truth. Big Grin

So, the thing is. I want 2 forums, with 1 backend, with 2 different theme's. I did find out about the themes so that's not a problem anymore ( I guess, I just attached a different theme for a categorie ). Now the thing is, how can I attach forum1 ( lets call it 'monkey' ) to a subdomain, and forum2 ( lets call this 'banana' ) to another subdomain.

So monkey will be attached to; monkey.example.com/forum. and banana will be attached to; banana.example.com/forum

Also, I don't want to have a categorie layout. I just want 2 smooth looking forums, like it are 2 different forums. Big Grin

Thanks in advanced,
Tosfera

use xthreads to build the different look of each forum (it may take a while to work out how powerful xthreads is .... then perhaps htaccess to mimic urls


RE: Multi-forums - Tosfera - 10-20-2013

hmm, using this xthreads can work. but then there is another question, to display the actual forum on a subdomain. Is it required to copy the frontend there? Else I will just setup 1 backend, and recreate the front-end to my requirements. Just the pain is now, whenever mybb has an update... I gotta redo it, or just do the updates manualy.
