-- Add to .htaccess:

check correct file name -> .htaccess (a dot before htaccess)
have you also uploaded pluginlibrary ? AND have you clicked on apply changes ?

If you have a rewrite rule for ^([^./]+)$ (because you removed the prefix at some point), remove the rule. Make sure you don't have conflicting rewrite rules in general. If it still doesn't work, post your .htaccess, something will be wrong with it...
Not Solved
where is that located? I have htaccess but don't see a .htaccess
and yes to plugin library and yes to apply changes

I also don't know what you mean with the rewrite stuff frost. Could you explain that a little different? I am pretty new.. sorry.
Not Solved
it is .htaccess which should have the URL rewrite rules ; located at forum's root directory .
first may be saved as htaccess.txt on your computer ; then upload to server & rename to .htaccess
Not Solved
AHAH I just had to rename it to .htaccess !! I redid everything and it works! Smile Thanks everyone! Do you want to rename threads to topics on the .htaccess though? It showed us how to do it in xstrikes tutorial. Is there any reason for it?
This made my site really slow.... Any thoughts on that?
NEVERMIND must have just had to get everything situated! lol works good now
