The reason I kept the urlPattern like that it because as suggested by someone from development team here, I did that in webconfig to keep topics in full width of page as when any user go to groups and then discussion boards, the  boards show up in the left side (because of {PageName} in url) and hence it compresses the content in the discussion topic very much.

Is there any other solution to solve this ?

Hi super,
I remember the tilde issue for urls on custom location. 
You can revert the rewriting rules and force default page by setting this webpart property "DefaultPageName"

Keep in mind that this and the rewrite rule suggestion that I gave in previous threads are  just  workarounds. The issue is in a static method that does the url resolving (RewritePagePath for the reference). This method is called in a lot of places and needs thorough testing before fix is released. As you can see there are many entrypoints that influence the final url generation (rewrite rules, web part property, web config setting, request url). It's not trivial.

Another thing to remember is that discussion rewrite rules are shared between  group discussions and regular discussions so if you hardcode the rewrite url for it to work for one it breaks the other.

Sure, I can explain you why I did that - The reason I did that is because:

I want topics to be displayed in full page.

Example:

If I keep the /{PageName} in url, 

You can see the discussion board page looks like this: HERE
And, when you go inside  the board,  the  topic page look like this: HERE

(You can see the the topics are being displayed in  the left column and then when you click it, it still display the posts in left column which is small area for posts that I get as everything gets condensed)


My requirement:
I do want my discussion board page look like this: HERE
The only difference I want is that when anyone click on topics, the topics should be displayed like this in full width: HERE

This is why I changed the url because I want monox/pages/socialNetworking page to be used instead of same page where topic is clicked as {PageName} keeps  the user in same page structure and only change the content.

Please check the attached screen shots to see the default layout for Discussion Board List and the Discussion Board Topics in Groups.

Is this what you want?

The problem is that if I keep the URL rules AS-IS as it is being deliviered in the monox by default.

If I place anything related to discussion boards on homepage. like new groups or discussion topics etc on  the homepage right side column. If any user click on it, nothing happens and url changes in address bar but page is still homepage.

It seems like other things are not intended to be on homepage when URL rules are kept default. WHY ?

and if placing these item in side column is not possible. Is there any work around ?
