URL to Message Board
First, I'd like to say that we really like the demo of the message board - it's working quite nicely and looks great. Thank you GT for all your great work. Smile

Currently, the URL to get to the message board is like this: www.mysite.com/cgi-bin/forum/gforum.cgi. Prior to getting the demo the message board link from the navbar was set to www.mysite.com/forum/ (with coming soon on the index.html page). I assume the forum can't be an index.html since it needs to be run with gforum.cgi (If it can - how can I do this?). The thought of changing the link on all those pages is tiring!

When I first tried to install the demo - I installed into www.mysite/forum/ but the cgi files didn't work. I was told to reinstall into the cgi-bin directory. That did the trick. However, the URL shows cgi-bin and I'm wondering if this is necessary? I think the site owner would prefer the url to be www/mysite.com/forum/gforum.cgi rather than showing the cgi-bin. Would this be a simple change in the Admin Setup: Path and URL Settings for cgi_root_url ? Or is it even possible? I've noticed a poster here that has his forum's url set to www.site.com/forum/gforum.cgi - is that due to how he set up the cgi_root_url or is it because he is on a different type of server and the cgi files didn't need to be in the cgi-bin? Sorry if these questions sound silly. We are just newbies and learning as fast as we can.

Thanks in advance!
