Hello,

I'm looking for a basic description of the architecture behind JForum to help me customise the JForum a bit. I'm fine with using the CSS for general appearance, but I would like to go a bit further (e.g. change banner content). I'm no Java/JSP guru ("intermediate" knowledge), so I need a bit of help getting started. I guess my main question is: how is a page constructed in JForum?

Thanks!

Vincent

Try looking at the .html pages ... that's all you need to change for appearance (unless you're trying to extend functionality of the underlying application).

Trying to figure it out from the html pages, but I have never seen such a thin client in my life :-) I guess it's quite clean, leave it all to the underlying classes... Just not easy to mess with, but I suppose that's not the idea :-)
