View Full Version : Placing whole forum inside 1table cell in html?

01 Oct 2006, 01:16
I alread have a header and footer and two sides for my website. I have a content table in the middle. This table cell is empty and is where I want the forum to be inside. The table cell is approx 945pixels wide, and however long it needs to be.

Or do I have to make the website around my forum.

Basically I have a website in html already, forum installed in ftp directory. I just want to put the whole contents of the forum inside a table cell on that html page.

I know what I am describing must be a little unusual and hard to understand, but thanks in advance if anyone can help.

Instead of putting forum in a table you can use FRAME or IFRAME tags, it would be better.

Even so with the frames , how will i go about doing that?

Add something like this in the header template:

<!-- logo -->
<a name="top"></a>
<table border="0" width="$stylevar[outertablewidth]" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" align="center">
<td align="$stylevar[left]"><a href="$vboptions[forumhome].php$session[sessionurl_q]"><img src="$stylevar[titleimage]" border="0" alt="$vboptions[bbtitle]" /></a></td>
<td align="$stylevar[right]">
<!-- /logo -->

<table border="0" width="100%" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" align="center">
<td><div style="width: leftsidewidthinpx">
left side
<!-- forum contents -->
<!-- content table -->


Then, add at the very bottom of the footer template

<!-- end forum contents -->
<td><div style="width: rightsidewidthinpx">
right side

That's the basic's which you can play around with.

But you could also go a few other ways. Get vbadvanced and manualy add it to all the forum pages you want (takes some time to do). Or get vbPortal which will automaticaly add a left side (but not right side) to every forum page.

Yeah I did this with my site once but the site template was a tad bit to small and I didnt want any scroll bars in the IFrame so i was like who cares and just abandoned the IFrame.
