How to customize my forum

Post by fisher318 » Wed Feb 06, 2008 8:39 pm

Hello, we recently did a complete redesign of our website. At the same time, I would like to have my forum match the look and feel of the existing website which the forum is located here: http://www.groundwire.net/forums

We are currently using phpBB 2.0.20 © 2001

How do I go about changing the forum template layout?

The best way of going about this is to find a style which is similar to your site in colour and then edit its overall_header.tpl and overall_footer.tpl to match the sites header and footer. tpl files are plain HTML files and can be edited using a plain text editor :)
