YAFLogo

I have successfully installed and configured YAF to a certain extent whereby it sits in a folder named YAF on my website and I have a /Forum.aspx page on the root of my website, which contains the forum control.

So when I go to the /Forum.aspx page everything is fine, however when I go to log or any other action it is trying to forward me to www.websitename/yaf/forum.aspx?g=login&ReturnUrl=%2fForum.aspx and the forum page does not exist here as its on the root so we get a 404. Am I missing a vital step in terms of configuration?

Are you trying to run the forum in a subfolder or in the root folder?


If you can't find it using the forum search, try my signature link -- searches this site using Google: Google is my Friend

The site is the root and there is a /Forum.aspx page in there which contains the forum user control. All of the YAF files sit withing a yaf folder which sits within the website root. This is not configured as a virtual directory in IIS. The webroot also has all of the necessary config files in order to run yaf.

ie

www/forum.aspx (this contains the forum user control)

www/yaf/(all yaf files here)

Let me know if you need more info.

Thanks
