Silly Question i'm sure...





anotheraddict
Ok, on my website I have a forum located at http://atrocity.frih.net/Forums

Now my question... is there an easy way to make this forum accesable from http://atrocity.frih.net/forums like... just just get rid of the case sensitivity?

just curious, cause i know that most webpages don't have this issue right? ty in advance.

If you can access the file yourself via FTP (or the file manager), then simply rename the directory "Forum" to "forum".

well, thats not really solving the problem... i would like it if people could access it either as "Forum" or "forum" i don't want the case to be a factor, if this is even possible...
Balthamos
That's probably possible, but how many people do you know would go to the trouble of capitalizing "forum"? I see what you are trying to say, but I just don't see a need in doing so, and also I am unsure of how to do what you ask of. Perhaps someone else can help you with that.

Sorry I can't help more than that,

just create a page http:///your.web.site.net/forum/index.html .
Place a note on that page with the corrected link and redirect the user to it after, say, 30 seconds.

This way everyone who enters your forum for the first time will get notified and will have chance to place a correct link in his/her bookmarks.

BTW: why not placing the forum in ..../forum directory (instead of "..../Forum") in the first place?

Umm..

Both your links are not working
anotheraddict
<- stupid

It should have just been http://atrocity.frih.net/Forum

no plural

and, I just renamed the directory for now, since I imagine that will be the easiest thing to do for now.

With a "index" page in that directory, will people who type in the wrong URL see the index? or just a 404?
anotheraddict
additionally, I setup a 404 redirect, so the issue is fixed. ^_^ thanks guys.

i would of said put an inxex.html file in a /forums folder then just use some code to redirect you from /forums to /Forums will work fine Smile
