I'm new to JForum, please bare with me. I would like to customize the jforum's look and feel, How would I customized it? In addition, I would like to use JForum in my site, by putting forum contents on the right panel, like JForum's site?
Any help or documentation is appreciated! [originally posted on jforum.net by crazyGuy]
FYI - The template names more or less match the jForum functions being requested. You can find out more by digging in the code, but generally just veiwing the source of the page you want and then finding the matching HTML in the page names that seem to look right works too.
That helps with changing the look and feel of the forums, but how do you embed the forum, just like this site does. How does this site make the forum appear on the right of a menu? [originally posted on jforum.net by sbargon]
Use a css class or width attribute on the left hand <td> to control the size of the column. Standard HTML stuff... no magic needed.
FWIW, a trick so that you can use a nice GUI tool like Dream Weaver is to do the following:
Add some comments to the header and footer templates at the end and beginning. E.g.
<!-- Header.html ends -->
<!-- Footer.html starts -->
Then display a page you want to format. Then save it and open the saved copy in DW. Use this to make your page look good, but make sure only to editing above and below the comments. Once you have it looking good with the static saved page, copy the info to the header or footer file as needed. [originally posted on jforum.net by monroe]
