Inbed Forum into Webpage

Hello all,

I have been looking on the web but been unable to find any information on this particular subject.

I will be updating soon (vB 4.2.0) and I am looking for a way to inbed my forum into a webpage (html/css). I understand I might need java or something to accomplish this and I also know it's possible as before my hard-drive crash I had seen some webpages able to do this with vBulletin.

Any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated.

I'm not really sure what you mean. Do you mean embed? If so, what do you mean by embed your forum?

Looks like my last post here has been deleted or something.

Yes I mean embed, bad spelling on my part. Basically what I am after is to put my forums into a html page so the forums can match the html site. The forums will be in the middle of the html site, in a box to put it basically and so you can use the forums as you would but it have the html code around it.

I read somewhere an iframe could do it, I don't have any experience in this, I have a bit of experience with html/css but never tried to put a php forum into html. I have seen it done with vBulletin forums before on other sites before my HD crash.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

It seems posts from the last day or so disappeared across the board. Happens during maintenance sometimes. I'm pretty sure I left a reply, too.

It depends on what you're trying to accomplish functionally. For instance, if you're looking to have the page not physically reload, then that's done via AJAX, though you could technically do it in a iframe. If you're just looking to have a board wrapper that's consistent across your website, they you don't really have to do anything that drastic.

Ah okay, thanks for the heads up on the maintenance and posts.

A border, footer and header that is consistence across the site is what I am after actually.

That should be much simpler, relatively speaking. If it's just to have a consistent look, and not to have any vB functionality in the non-vB areas, then it's really only a matter of styling. You would just style the theme of your non-vB pages to match the vB pages. Presuming your using another type of site building script, like WordPress or Joomla, then you just use their respective theme tools. If you're looking for deeper integration, like auto-matching your vB style or having users combined in both scripts, then you'd have to look into the different integration mods here on the site. They all do different things and have different levels of integration.

Thank you for the reply, yes I'd probably what to match my non-VB pages to match the style of my forum. Is there any easy way to get the basic layout without endless trial and error watching things up in html/css?

While I do have experience with html/css I am looking to see if I can save myself some time.

Thanks again for the responses to this thread.

Without some kind of script that integrates them, you pretty much have to do the styling yourself. You can also look into hiring a designer in the Paid Request section, or see if someone in the non-paid section can look into it for you. But, yeah, it would require a time investment. But it can be kinda fun figuring it out.
