Is it possible to sandwich phpbb in header and footer?

Post by traincity321 » Fri May 24, 2019 10:06 pm

Hi... I used another message board before and they had code that allowed you to sandwich between a header and footer using java script. Is there a way of doing the same thing with phpbb? I was also interested in finding out more about styles. I haven't found any instructions of how to use it. I am a new user and am very appreciative of this software. One other thing. What is BBCode?

I'm not sure what you are asking here but phpBB is based on template system, if you know HTML and CSS it can be endlessly customized including the header and footer.

BBcode is common in many web applications like forum software, it's used to format posted text. If you are viewing posting pane the default ones are the little buttons on the top left of pane. The B button for example produces bold text.

Code: Select all

[b]Bold[/b] Test
That will produce this:

Bold Test

Another example is lists:

Code: Select all

[list]
[*]List Item 1
[*]List Item 2
[/list]
  • List Item 1
  • List Item 2

I read it as wanting to place phpBB inside their own website header / footer to make it match their site.

Like this:

Thanks for the info.

Yes the standard site header/footer is what I was talking about. Not sure what I am doing with this yet. I do know html and some css. I might have to unravel my mind a little as I am scetchy on the css. I have produced a few pages in php also. Although haven't done anything for a while.

see stock style [prosilver] templates here
https://github.com/phpbb/phpbb/tree/3.2 ... r/template

in general, overall_header.html & overall_footer.html can be modified to suit your requirement.

required css styles can be also added through separate css files

This extension may save you some time if you want to avoid editing phpbb's template files, Just replace the example header/footer html/css with your own.
