[Solved] Sitemap, SEO, and shortcodes
I use custom headers on all my pages, and if I use the method described here to change the forum page, it fails to use my header on the page. In Elementor my custom page is /forums/ and it has my header. When I set that setting to /forums, it overwrites my custom forum page. My other option, which works fine, is to use the shortcode
Like i said, this works on my /forums/ page. However, it is going to throw the SEO all off when it uses the site-map.xml settings from the /whatever-slug-i-put-in-the-settings-page.
What would be the best way to correct this so I can have my custom page header, wpforo, and a proper sitemap?
First you should create a new page with your Elementor. Then put wpForo shortciode in that page. Then go to Forums > Settings > General Tab and change the forum base URL to the new Elementor page slug (URL path), so it'll call your customized page.
