    Hi everybody,

    I have got back my :escouts: award marks today and i am really chuffed as i managed to get gold, but then it was upgrade, to Platinum, so thanks guys :thup:.

    Although there is still some more things to do on the site, and one of the things that can out of the results was, trying to get the forum to look like the main website. Well i dont have the knowledge to make the forum to look the same.

    So is there anybody else out the, of course there is, that would be able to help me to change the style of the forum.

    Thanks for you help in advance

    Matt

    digiTech, elveron, gorbgreenII seem to be a fairly good match

    it depends on how the files are linked and that but i know before with a differant script, think it was a guestbook one. i just used server side includes to insert the page into a page. But it was only a small script i i think i might have had to edit it slightly, im not so sure.

    id recomend looking for a style similar to your site on [url]http://www.phpbb.com/styles/demo.php[/url] and editing it for your site.

    If you moved away from phpBB there are simpler less advacned scripts out there that would make it easier.

    [B]xand[/B] looks quite an easy one to fit in with your site you can proberly just change the banner at the top two the one on your site.

    [url]http://www.phpbb.com/styles/demo.php[/url]

    what do you think abit of tweeking with the colours with some mods and i think your forum would fit in with your site.

    remember that you will have to set it as the default one that people can see
    though you can let members choose as to what one they use

    looking at this style it should be possible to move the meny to the left. then you could copy your site theme exactly

    kewl.
    being very picky the only thing that i would change would be the new post icon, its orange. change it to a shade of green to match your site
