I've read lots of posts asking how to change the path to the main forum page (e.g. /forum > /extranet/forum). Apparently this is either possible, with very messy hacks, or impossible; I haven't been able to find a definitive response.
I believe forum posts can be changed using path auto, but the main forum page apparently is more difficult?
I'm wondering why the root forum views cannot be made available as blocks that could then be embedded wherever they need to be in the site using panels or blocks management? This approach, combined with pathauto for posts would seem to solve the issue somewhat gracefully.
I'm new to advanced forums, so I'm probably not understanding the problem correctly. Still, have to ask!
