WP-United : phpBB WordPress Integration
Can I get it to work with Custom Community? (6 posts)

    I really like my WordPress theme, and I'd really like to be able to incorporate my sidebars with my forum. I have a two-part question:

    1. Do you know anybody who is using this with Custom Community? Because when I try to do the theme integration, the result is a mess. The backgrounds and CSS don't work at all, no matter where I put the slider.

    2. Is there a how-to anywhere on how to format a different page if #1 is possible? When my forum is in between my two sidebars, it's quite squished. I would love to have a wider container and have the sidebars be further apart on the forum page.

    Hi Halo,
    1. I had a lot of problems with looks of forum until I switched from Theme integration - "Statically cached Header/footer" to "Full page - no sidebar" option.
    Put CSS to full, and Theme integration advanced options to Full page and try from there...

    2. Not sure. One side bar - maybe, but 2 sidebars will probably give you squashed forum. I can guess that in that case you need to tinker with WP theme width...

    Thanks, Giurra. The only reason I would use the theme integration is to use my blog sidebars. But I can't even get it to work on a full page, I just get a mess, a white page with links all over it.

    I see. Did you tried Statically cached Header/Footer?
    Also, I had to remove sidebars on my site in order to make forum look decent. Otherwise, it was pretty squashed.
    I had similar issue with a messed text and links all over the page when I changed phpBB theme to Subsilver.
    Did you tried Prosilver? It fixed the mess for me...

    P.S. Another idea. Did you purged the theme cache in phpBB ACP after switching settings in WP United plugin?

    Ah! Another great idea, thank you. I will check that when I am ready to try to integrate themes again. I am currently focusing on other issues related to the update.

    Would you, by any chance, know where the WP-United "User Manual" is located? I keep seeing it mentioned in threads over at the WP United forum, but alas I cannot find it...

    Nope, no that I'm aware of...
    You don't need manual. All the screens are self explanatory.
    I had an issue with WP caching plugin, so if you have one, delete the cache from WP also...
    Did you check WP united forum on http://www.wp-united.com/ ?
