I read the tutorial and thought I followd the directions correctly but when I click the link to the forum I find that it is a totally new forum and not the one I was trying to link it to.



Can someone help me with this?

There's a bug in 5.0.3 that causes this to not work right. However you should be able to edit your info.php file to change the forum database details manually.

  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

Ok. The link now goes to the first forum that I set up but it actually takes me to the other website. Maybe I misunderstood but I didn't think anyone was supposed to be able to know that the forum was on another website. Am I missing something or did I not make enough changes in the "info" file?

If you have the forum base URL (I think it's called the board prefix in the config file) set the same as your base URL, it should do what you want.
