I'm looking in to setting up a new site which has a Craft site in front of the open source version of Vanilla Forums. I'm a bit stuck on exactly where I should put vanilla though, and how to access it on the front end.
At the moment I've got this setup:
/ /craft /public /vanilla
But then vanilla's URLs look like
http://domain.dev/vanilla/index.php?p= and it seems to conflic with Craft's .htaccess.
I've also seen on another question that someone installed vanilla in the templates directory. Is that better or a bad idea?
Lastly, should I be trying to run the forums under something like
domain.dev/forums/, or would it be easier to run it on a subdomain like
forums.domain.dev? I'm going to be using the Single Sign On plugin to integrate it with Craft.
