Actually, it's not powered by EZ Board, that is just the main board used for the main discussions for the sole reason that most EverQuest communities run of there.
The website runs with a phpBB baord as it's backend for news posting, user authentication etc. and there is no readily available link to it, you have to click either the comment or newest user or some such to go there, or you can click this link
About admin rights to the board, that is not really an option since that would be a security break. I was thinking on development on an offboard, I can even set one up just for that purpose if you wish that, but I will not give admin access to the main board.
The design should be relatively simple.
No logo at the top since forum probably would go in an iframe on the main website.
The different board links that are at the top of a phpBB board and should be simple text links on one long line (should be able to wrap down if the browser is dragged smaller).
Otherwise the board should match the site as best possible, and preferably in a way so it could go in an iframe in the middle of the main site, not necesary, allthough it would be cool
I understand that this is volunteer work so I would be very appreciative of any help. I looked at some of the templates to try and get an understanding of how it was done and I would imagine it to be a major work to make it.
