What files to edit?

Post by nldbrian » Thu Oct 04, 2018 4:54 pm

Hi there, I am trying to intergrate my forums into a website theme i recently bought!
Now i am wondering what files do i need?
What needs to be done?
  • Navbar of forums needs to be inserted in the website navbar.
  • Forum cat & topics listing should have the background as shown in the example
  • Topics, UCP should have a background, instead of the full website background
How it should be(HTML Page):

How it is right now:

Anyone that can assist, or atleast tell me what files i need to edit?

you may be going about this the wrong way. normally what people do is put the main website header and footer in the phpbb style.
the files to edit for this will be the overall_header and overall_footer.html files for whatever phpbb style you choose.
I would choose one similar to your main site in colors etc.

then you can edit the css files for the phpbb style you are using.

for the website template you are using it will take a lot of tweaking and editing to make them look the same.

if you are not pretty good with html and css then it may take you a long time to get it just right.

I would also suggest that you create your phpBB style as a "child" style of whatever style you choose then you will not have problems with uopdates
