Hi, please noticed my forum has two  pages:

1. forum

2. community

 

I tried removing the forum and then change the one with community as slug but as I finished doing that, my forum stopped showing. 

Attached is the screen shot.

I've tried adding back the page I edited and still it's still same.

I'll appreciate your help.

Thank you.

Hi @jrm,

Navigate to Dashboard > Pages, edit Forums Page, Check the page slug and ID, then go to  Dashboard > wpForo > Boards, edit the board, and make sure that the board slug and Id are the same as the Forum Page.

Thank you. 

It's working now. There are two pages currently on having the forum on my website, with different slugs and the both are working 

• /forum 

And 

• /community

I'm asking, if having those two pages with same forum on my site affect my site SEO?

 

Thanks.

@jrm,

No, it won't affect on your site SEO.

Actually the /community goes to /forum (redirects). Why you need that? I mean why need the /community?

And YES it will have a small negative effect to your insite SEO. Open a Google Webmaster account and you will know if it is important or not.

@dimalifragis OK, thank you.

I tried deleting /community and leave only /forum because that's the slug for the board, then the forum stopped showing.

I'll just leave it as it is working now.

@jrm Do whatever you wish, it is just not right. Something seems wrong.

@dimalifragis Yes, that's why I tried to remove it the first time.

It's seems the other page was created automatically by the plugin
