Bulletin Boards such as phpBB RESEND

I’d like to integrate phpBB into a Freeway site Š

I’ve looked on the KB, but the only mention of BBs is from 2003. There is no
practical help there on how one would go about integrating say phpBB into a
Freeway generated menuing system.

Best wishes Peter

What you need to do is pick a phpBB theme that is
close to your Freeway design and make it fit the
look and feel manually. The issue is that phpBB
is a product of server-side PHP code and
CSS-fragment elements, not visual HTML page
structures. It is the kind of thing normally done
with hard-core text editors, I’m afraid.

Hi Peter,
I did this a few years ago over on the old iView site
(http://forum.iview-multimedia.com) and the process was pretty much manually
done. I created a modified version of the standard site page template in
Freeway and used this to alter the existing theme template that shipped with
phpBB. After a while you’ll see where the application is pulling the styles and
graphics from and these can be swapped as you see fit. Although we decided in
the end to sit the forum in it’s own sub-domain we started of simply creating a
top level directory for this (/forum/) and manually linking the rest of the site
to it.
As such my best advice to you is to consider it a separate island in your site
and simply let Freeway link into it as required.
Regards,
Tim.
