Special Forum is a special forum board which is separate from the usual forum application. For example you may want to create special forum called “Classifieds” separate from regular current Discussion Board.
Manual folder duplication. you need to duplicate content of
and rename it to
[codename] = special forum name (without bracket)
xxxx = main custom made VI
by creating symbolic link
with name “[codename]” pointing to the directory “forum”. This is actually much better solution as “[codename]” code will be always up-to-date whenever main “forum” is updated.
To create this “symbolic link” you need to log in to the server by ssh, go to “intranet” directory and execute the command:
ln -s forum [codename]
“ln” is a command for creating a link, “-s” is a key saying that it should be a symbolic link, “forum” is a target where this link will point, and finally “forsale” is a link name. You can do the same for VI folder. I’ve done this in “interface_default”.
REPLACE [codename] with special forum name without bracket.
