Solved How to make forum look like part of a website?

Post by Handyy on February 20th 2013, 12:56 pm

Hi,

I'd like to make my forum look like it's part of a website, but I'm not sure how to do it as my skills to code anything are pretty non-existent.

Let me give an example with an image what I'd like to accomplish:



So basically I'd want my forum inside of that white part of the page, while the website-look would preferably still be functional with the button links it has above the actual forum. Is this doable and if it is, how exactly I could accomplish this?

Thanks!

Hi,

Isn't really available, although you can edit the templates and play around with the CSS in order to make it seem like a website, or you can try this,

Thanks for the reply. As my skills with CSS are limited, I'm thinking my only option is to make the website look by making an image of the "header" and using it as a logo for the forum. That way it would look like the website, but without being functional.

Although would it be possible to make the image act like a mapped link through CSS? Not sure how I should use it with the forum CSS, but will have to look into it...

This sort of thing is possible on FM. Just requires a bit of work, getting the HTML, CSS, and sometimes JavaScript right.

Thank you all for the replies. I will try to search and learn the HTML + CSS + JavaScript method!
