Hi,

I don't know why and how, but I have my 2 forums (one in French and the other in English) with the same page id.

  1. French:  https://xxx.com/community/  (Default Language)
  2. English:  https://xxx.com/community_en/

So there is 2 different URL for the 2 forums.

But both have the same page id, "2310" :

The impact is on the design. There is only one page in the WordPress admin panel to design both forums.

I inherit the settings of the page in the default Language (French) for the forum in English, which it's a big issue.

For example, I have my posts in French and not English on the sidebar in the English forum  https://xxx.com/community_en/ ).  I tried to change the page ID for board 7 (English) but got a 404 error.

How can I change the board id ( to set a different design)  of Board 7 without getting a 404 error and keep the URL structure without losing my SEO work in Google?

 

Thanks

Hi @ldj72,

You can create a new page for the Second board. Just change the Board ID to new Page ID.

Hi @Chris,

  • Board ID are already different "Community = 0" and "Community_en = 7"
  • When I changed the Page ID of "Community_en" to "2311"  I got an error message: "2311 not found"
  • And I get a 404 error page when I browse the forum https://xxx.com/community_en/

Please advise.

Regards

@ldj72,

wpForo default Forum Page ID is 2310, 

what's the seconds Page ID?

You have to set the second Page ID in community_en board Settings

What's the second Page ID?

It's the same 2310! I don't know why.

If I try to change the page ID manually to "2311", for example, I get the error message on the WPforo board admin panel and a 404 error on my website.

 

 

Please advise.

What do mean? I don't get it.

Do I have to create a page with the English slug?  xxx.com/comunity_en ?

You can create a new page for the Second board.

Yes, you create a new Page, set its slug to them Second Board Slug, set the Page ID in the Board settings.
