how to make my forum like the one on this website?

Post by chrisx16x2008 » Sun Feb 08, 2009 8:58 pm

Hi I'd like to make my forum like the one on this site...ultimate-guitar.com/forum/. The top of my site is very similar to the one on this site because i have a banner, ad and navigation at the top just like him. I know he uses Vbulletin but im pretty sure you can do it with phpBB too. I have been looking for a way to do this but can't find anything. Anyone wanna help me out?

Well what is your site? We would need to compare them to even begin to give you advice.

bandmethod.comli.com its not close to being complete. Most text isn't what its going to be but that's the width.

make a subdomain called like forum.domainame.com and then install the site there then on your main page http://www.domainname.com instead of like community opening a page make it a external link that opens your forum check out my site removed
