I would like to ask if and how is it possible to integrate jforum in existing web. The web has already some layout. It contains some navigation menu, some header, some foot. It is like this web on jforum.net. There is some area in center where the main content is show. For example if you click screenshots in navigation, this area contains screenshots.

I would like to achieve that when I click forum in navigation it shows the jforum in the area.

Is this possible?
If yes, could someone write me information how to do that or where can I find the info?

Thanks in advance!

Hi peitrotk,

this is possible, as there is various posts throughout the forum that state this too.

To adjust the layout, you have to modify the style.css file of the template of your choice. I'd suggest you make a copy of the default template folder, and modify the systemglobals.conf or jforum_custom.conf so that the template_dir parameter points to the new template directory. Then change the design so it adapts the colors of your other website. You can modify the header.html too so that the logo for instance will not show anymore and things like that.

For integration into the page you do it like with the screen shot page ^^ ... which you probably solved by setting the target frame with the clicked link
