    Redirect help

    Then it looks like the assumption from IPS is that every website using their software only uses their software and nothing else, which is miles away from the real world. As a test I created a file under /forums containing a redirect to the membership page and then tried setting up a redirect to that file which, if the above is correct, should work, but it doesn't. What I also don't get is the description of this application states: Advanced path aliases is an application that allows you to change or create url paths to point to any page on your site. It enhances the capabilities of the core IPS furl definitions in the following ways: Set any interior page of your site as the homepage Maintain multiple custom path aliases for any individual page Set a path alias as canonical to be used as the primary url for a page Create path aliases to 301 redirect old urls to new locations Create path aliases to redirect to external web pages Set the http protocol to be used explicitly for any page Automatically redirect old urls when new urls are created for a page How can you set up redirects to external web pages if everything has to exist under the base URL?

    Redirect help

    Was hoping this could solve a big problem I've got since upgrading to IPB4. For years I've used a 3rd party membership management system as there are multiple parts to my site requiring registration. Under IPB3 this wasn't an issue as you could set register/login/change password etc links from the admin side. That's been removed in IPB4 and support aren't interested in helping. I've bought and installed the full version of Aliases, but having problems getting it working. It might be me as there are no docs available that I can see. e.g I want to redirect the "Change Password" link I set the Path to /membership/profile I set "Map to" to http://www.mydomain.com/forums/settings/password/?app=core&module=system&controller=settings&area=password I leave Canonical as On If I then go to the user's control panel and hover over the Change Password link, the URL is http://www.mydomain.com/forums/membership/profile which is incorrect. It should be http://www.mydomain.com/membership/profile I tried to set the Custom Homepage URL to http://www.mydomain.com thinking that might resolve things, but that just says "Invalid site URL". Tried both with and without trailing slash. I also tried switching Canonical off and Redirect to on, but when hovering over the Change Password link, it remains as the default http://www.mydomain.com/forums/settings/password/?app=core&module=system&controller=settings&area=password It sound like this application should do what I want and solve a major headache, but can't get it to work so any help appreciated.
