here's another link that may or may not help. http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopi ... 4&t=963325
- the tutorial post may be helpful, but the thread seems to have died off, so it's probably not a good place for asking questions.
to make your forum fit into your site, you need to edit the (-phpbb- / styles / -stylename- / template / ) overall_header.html (top/beginning and left side of the page) and overall_footer.html (right side and bottom/end of the page) files for your chosen style. you may also need to add/edit code in the css file(s) for that style. what you add/change in the files will depend on how your site looks.
make sure that you save a backup copy of each file before editing. that way, if you make a mistake, you can overwrite it with the backup and start over.
when you're done making changes, and want to see how they look, purge your board's cache through the admin panel.
here's another tutorial post that may be helpful, this one is for editing prosilver's overall_header.html file. given the date of the post, the code posted may have changed. http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopi ... 4&t=639205
the second link you posted won't help you, as it's for phpbb 2, not 3, and the file structure has completely changed. the third link tends more towards pages outside of the phpbb package that work with it.
please do not PM me to ask for help. thanks.
