Core forums sets the landings page to /forum. I need this changed to /some-other-name.the forum posts can be changed using pathauto, but I need to change the alias for the top-level forum landing page. I have tried playing with url aliases but can't find anything to solve my purpose. I googled and found this exctly same question on drupal stackexchange, but I need to do it for drupal-6. Please help. Edit: im also using advanced-forum module

  • On a Drupal 6 site, I went to admin/build/path/add and in the existing system path I entered forum and in the path alias I entered somewhereelse/forum and it worked, so, what am I missing here? Do you need the forum names/categories aliased as well? – Jimajamma Jun 22 '13 at 15:00
  • I searched long but could not find this path setting.btw i was searching in admin/setting, and yes i need forum /names/categories aliased as well.. let'see if i can manage it with url aliases..thank you so much.. I will look for it and report back. – irohit786 Jun 24 '13 at 4:19

As Jimajamma commented, the answer was really simple.. just go to admin/build/path/add and in the existing system path I entered forum and in the path alias I entered /some-other-name and it worked, and btw if you need it for drupal 7, the go to admin/config/path/add.
