    Hello everyone,

    My main site is Mobile SMS Collection - Funny sms ~ Love sms ~ sms Joke ~ Sardarji sms ~ Flirt ~ Good Morning ~ Sweet Sms.... We have all kind of sms for you

    and forum is at SmsBucket Forums - Index page

    but if you look at both pages, the template is very different. My forum is not looking like a part of my main site smsbucket.com

    I want to put my forum INSIDE the template of my main site... just like this
    http://www.decentbanners.com/images/desired_forum_layout.jpg

    Can anyone please tell me how can I put my forum inside the main template?

    Waiting for some feedback.

    Thanks
    Jani,

    What CMS are you using for your website??
    If Joomla, then, you can integrate SMF into Joomla.

    Ask Uncle Google.

    However, it seems like you are using PHPBB right now.
    I guess, there is also integration pack of PHPBB available for Joomla! :)

    No, I am not using any kind of script on my site. My site is made in pure html.

    I have created a blank page for my forum which you can see here Chat With Other Online Visitors

    Now it is a blank page, and I want my forum to appear in this template.

    Anybody knows how to do it? Please help.

    Alright.
    You need to hire a designer now.
    I know that you are a great designer, but, you have to hire a PHPBB Template coder and ask him to design a template like your home.
    Give all the images, buttons you designed and he will code a template using those designs for your forums.

    They may charge you around $50. This is only one time project. So, you better hire a coder :)

    No, I think it can be done without hiring anyone.

    Take a look at this forum RealGM • Information

    this guy also integrated his forum with his site's template and when I asked him how did he do that, he said it can be done by using iFrame but he was not sure about it, because it was done by his friend.

    There must be some other way of doing it.

    I don't see any iFrame there.
    Well, there is a perfect way of doing it.

    Listen to me, If you can code a template using that images, then, thats it. Job Done! :yes:

    You can use iFrames, but, this is not good for SEO. :)

    The template you have isnt much different in forms of how it looks , you could just edit the forum templates css to change the colours and then change the images too, that would get it very very close looking to the main site
