@hassancs91 Unclear what you want to do.

Move to a new domain? You can't change a DOMAIN just like that. I guess you want to do something else. Pls explain better.

I guess he wants to change the subdomain "archive" to community or similar

Hello Hassan.

I faced the same issues on my site Shakeworldonline.com, after multiple tries and errors I was able to solve it.

To change the base URL, create a page on your WordPress, and name it forum then paste the wpforo shortcode [wpforo] on the page. If you don't name it forum you will face other challenges like page not found, when users want to view their profile.

Once you have created the page copy the page ID, Goto wpforo settings then scroll down to boards. click on it. then you can choose to create a new board or edit the existing one.

Then change the board slug to forum. also, change the page ID to the one you copied from the page you created. Then click save. Done!

If you want the whole WordPress site to be a forum. scroll down from the board page you create and choose Enable. the entire site will be a forum.
