Is it possible to run Askbot in / instead of /questions ?

Currently it looks like it's 301'ing to /questions ?

With the current codebase is not possible because Askbot was thought to play well along other apps, not just to be standalone, but the good news is that to modify this behaviour is quite easy just patching the urls.py file in askbot code.(Note: I've not tested if there is conflicts with this configuration)

I just tested and there was conflicts with this configuration.

I'm curious to know - why askbot redirects to /questions ? For any good reason? AFAIK redirects are bad for SEO. esp 301. Thanks.

@pajju for cases where askbot it not your main site, you can have foo.com/something else play along with askbot in the same domain.

@neo2013 I'll add this to my list and make it work.
