integrating my forum

Post by Greeney64 on May 31st 2012, 11:16 am

Hello all;
I have a couple of questions
I am setting up a website and wondered if there is a way to integrate the forum into one of the site pages so it looks like it is a part of the website?

Also I have a Ten character minimum limit on the 'new topic' and this is annoying; is there a way to change this

Thank you

You can make a forum portal which is like a welcome page and it is still part for the forum.

And I believe that the minimum in the ACP. Sorry.

Hi,
This is one way to put your forum on a website. Add your forum URL to this code where is says "FORUM URL GOES HERE". Add that code to an html page.

Code:
<iframe src="FORUM URL GOES HERE" width="100%" height="500" scrolling="auto"></iframe>

To change the Topic title length minimum value go to:

AP>>General>>Messages and emails>>Configuration>> and scroll down to "Topics title length" and set it there.

Runawayhorses you're a star thank you

Both worked fine but the only thing is I am using a WYSIWYG program as I am not a web developer and have had to add an HTML box to a blank page and in doing this it adds a scrolling box inside a scrolling box, is there anything I can do to change this?

thanks, you're welcome. Smile
OK good, but I was going to say,without messing around with it on your site with your setup and program its hard to say what will get rid of the added scroll box, however on one site I use it also has a WYSIWYG editor and it did not add a scroll box inside a scroll box. So what I would try is removing the scroll part of the code like this and see if that gets rid of it:

Code:
    <iframe src="FORUM URL GOES HERE" width="100%" height="500"></iframe>
