    Every link pointing to a forum in xenForo has a "forums" text in the URL.

    Similarly, every thread has a "threads" string.

    This is the standard way of xenForo to uniquely identify a node. In case you want to change it, you can easily do that using Route Filters.

    Changing the Forums Slug


    1. Open xenForo admin panel.
    2. Navigate to Home -> Route Filters.

    3. On the Route Filter creation page, fill the "Find Route:" input box with "forum/", and the "Replace With:" input box with the new string that you want to be displayed in the place of "forum/".

    4. Finally, press the Save Route Filter button.
    5. Similarly, you can change the threads string also.
    In case you are wondering to remove the "forums" string completely, you can't do that.
