3 sites, one script.. is it possible?

Post by coffeechika »

I was just wondering if it would be possible to setup more than one forum page for each script. for example:
Teen Forum:
http://www.golivewire.com/forums/support-teen.html

College Forum:
http://www.golivewire.com/forums/support-college.html

Tech Forum:
http://www.golivewire.com/forums/support-technical.html

these three examples run from the same script and share the same users.. they just have different forums on each page.
would this be possible for phpbb3?

please let me know if it has been done, and how..

Yes, certainly easily possible... you would use the templates and assign <!-- IF forumrow.FORUM_ID eq x -->{ table code similar to forumlist_body }<!-- ENDIF -->

It's possible, but it would add unnecessary complication imo...

Hmmm....

Almost a better Idea would be to make 3 catagories on the forum, one for each set of forums.

If you really wanted to, you could use .htaccess files (if your server supports them) to rewrite /forums/index.php?f=## to /forums/support-teen

so then if the user is to go to /forums/support-teen then they will see the appropriate one of the three catagories.
