it might not only related to phpbb.

I found that clicking different buttons on the top banner of your site could lead me to different section , well such as "Blog", "About", "download" ... etc. I also know that when i installed the "Buttons menu 1.0.2" MOD, i could get this button banner.

My problem is when i click for example "Blog" , i will be directed to another software (it's a wordpress or your own program). HOW could i keep this banner ? OR your "About", "Dowloads" ... sections all are a part of phpbb?

i really want to setup a site like yours. ;)

that means you need Blog that works under phpBB3 framework
OR
you can change the style of your blog to make it as the style of phpBB3

Read the instructions in the buttons mod.

ACP>mods>set buttons>Link where the button redirects you (add with http://)

And add whatever URL you want.

If you want an 'about' page for example you would need to create custom pages, have a read of this: Knowledge Base - Add a New Custom Page to phpBB and then link to it from your buttons menu.

yes, i know ... but the problem is for example i'm using wordpress to setup my blog ... so i set my button redirect to "http://www.mydomain.com/wordpress" ) ... when i'm redirected to my blog, the button banner would disappear (of course i already left phpbb).

In your website, the upper banner always exists ... how to do this ? ;)
what's the blog software are you using ?

I'm no expert on Wordpress but if you try searching "integrating wordpress" on here I'm sure you'll find an answer.

I did one quick search and found this: http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopi ... 0&t=544065

There is also a phpBB blog mod also searchable on here: http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopi ... 0&t=543995

If these don't suit your needs have a search around.

Good luck

to integrate Wordpress into phpbb3 and allow users to have their own blog usnder my forum, it's great but sound very complicated.

ok, i put it simplier. I just want for example when people click the "blog" button, they will be directed to my own blog (a blogspot or yahoo account) BUT the button banner still exist on the top. Only that way people could easily go back to my forum and feel they're still in my website.


really want to know what blog system is this website using ? :)

We are using Wordpress with a custom theme to match the rest of the website, this is how you would have to do it.

No, phpBB.com has integerated WordPress into the main site, forum and all of that.
Every single part of the phpBB.com website is connected to the forum (exculding the blog as those are posted from WordPress).

Wordpress here is not integrated, it is just Wordpress with a custom theme that is all.
