Wow guys. I am surprised this hasn't gotten more attention. I would think it popular.
I am open to the subdomain vs subfolder structure.
Is this still the best suggestion?
What if the forum is on Speech Language Pathology - not likely to generate much objectionable content, in other words?
I have Shared Hosting on MochaHost (shoutout)- who has SSH, command line (terminal), ftp, etc. access AND cPanel.
I have successfully installed and configured (with extensions from FoF) two flarum forums. I went by the Installation Instructions. https://docs.flarum.org/
You can see one live now at figroots.com.
Now I would like to take the next step and install a Flarum forum as a Page (not the home page) in WordPress.
This is for slpWOW.com, I'm using a fresh WordPress install with GeneratePress.
I installed Flarum already in the root directory (home/maindomain/slpwow.com/) - note slpwow.com is an addon domain to /maindomain/ because it's shared hosting).
Flarum runs fine from https://slpwow.com/
and WP runs fine from https://slpwow.com/wp/
I just need to link them...
I created a new Page ("SLP Talk", slug="slp-talk") in WordPress (automatically set URL to https://slpwow.com/wp/slp-talk/).
But how do I direct the menu link in WP to run the Flarum forum when clicked?
I saw the 303/permanent redirect, edit htaccess file etc. when I searched, but I don't know which is the best way?
Thanks Guys so much if you have time to point me in the right direction please.
