Forum Help
« on: April 24, 2008, 06:16:03 PM »
Hello!  I have a forum-related question.  I know the forum uses SMF, but my issue is SMF with themes. 

Here's the thing, I'm creating a large madeup soap role play forum and I've always wanted to use SMF, and my question is, how'd you get the theme here to look so flawless, so...immaculate (no I'm not sucking up, I just mean it looks perfect, like it's just merely coded like a html page.

Thanks! ;D

Basically, I put the forum inside of our site template.  The site template is split into 3 parts: header, content and footer.   The forum is used as the content part.  The three parts are linked together using PHP include statements.  So while the html source looks like it's all one page, in reality it's 1 file included before the forum content and 1 file included after it.
