Setting Board base URL

The base URL of a message board is the general part of the URL used for board's unsubscription links in notification emails. You can set it in two ways:

  • In Settings -> Community -> Message boards -> Board base URL. From here, it can be inherited by web parts.
  • Directly in the Message board web part properties.

In order for the unsubscription links to work correctly, we recommend that you follow these rules when creating user message boards and group message boards:

  1. When creating a user message board, which is a message board placed on a user profile, set the Board base URL directly in the web part properties, for example: ~/Members/Profile

  2. When creating a group message board, which is a message board placed on a group profile, set the Board base URL directly in the web part properties, for example like this: ~/Groups/Profile

  3. When creating a public message board, which is a message board placed on any page without a wildcard URL, you do not need to specify the Board base URL property.
