How to configure your proxy path

  • We've received a number of questions regarding the proxy path, so I thought I'd try and explain it here in the forum for those who are getting started.

    First, please take a look at our guide regarding how to configure this: https://getchamp.net/guides/customizations/#custom-forum-path

    For your path, it MUST be under one of the following:

    • /apps
    • /a
    • /community
    • /tools

    HOWEVER, it cannot be ONLY /apps or /a or /community or /tools. You must have it under another directory, such as:

    • /apps/champ
    • /a/champ
    • /community/champ
    • /tools/champ

    If you don't like having the word champ there, you can switch it to something else like this:

    • /apps/forums
    • /a/forums
    • /community/forums
    • /tools/forums

    So why can't we use just simply /community?

    This is a Shopify-imposed restriction. Champ uses Shopify's proxy path feature, and under this feature, it is REQUIRED that we must namespace our app so that other apps could also access the available proxy paths as well.

    I hope that helps! I will pin this topic and leave it for all to see.

How to format posts

Champ uses Markdown for formatting text in posts. Certain markup tags (eg. H1) are forbidden to ensure that pages remain semantically compliant. Other tags are automatically sanitized to ensure all content is secure.

  • Emphasis, aka italics, with *asterisks* or _underscores_.
  • Strong emphasis, aka bold, with **asterisks** or __underscores__.
  • Combined emphasis with **asterisks and _underscores_**.
  • Strikethrough uses two tildes. ~~Scratch this.~~
  • Links are added automatically, but can be formatted like so: [My link](https://mylink.com)
For more information, take a look at the Markdown Cheatsheet.
