No dear this is not what I meant, I mean, since now I own the domain www.blackberrymatrix.net can't I just ad a sub domain like "/forums" to it?

And is it possible for that /forums to redirect to my free forums:

http://bbmatrixforums.lefora.com

Hi Ibrahim

The link that Sanja gave you, will allow you to do that. First, you will need to create new page called forum.

You will then be able to link to http://bbmatrixforums.lefora.com from your menu if you follow the steps given in the forum.

Let us know if you need more help.

Dear Mai, I already have a forum as shown above! I don't want to make a new forum it took me 10 days to create my BlackBerry Forums @ htp://bbmatrix.freeforums.org/

all I want, is if that someone would go to http://www.blackberrymatrix.net/forums it would automatically lead him to htp://bbmatrix.freeforums.org/
