Problem embedding phpbb forum into blog page (4 posts)

    hello everyone,
    I have already embedded my phpbb3.0.11 forum into my website/blog
    http://www.michaellanfield.com

    my forum is
    http://www.michaellanfield.com/forum

    When you go to my website it points to
    http://www.michaellanfield.com/?page_id=1348

    and the /forum is embedded in http://www.michaellanfield.com/?page_id=1348 page

    here is the code that I added to the page

    <?php get_header(); ?>

    <div id="content"><!-- if it's not in the header, that is... -->
    <iframe src="http://www.michaellanfield.com/forum" width="100%" height="100%" />
    </div>

    <?php get_footer() ?>

    My question is, how do I get the entire forum to be shown inside the blog frame without the use of scroll bars? I want the entire forum to fit in my website area frame (next to the widget area, under the menu).
    Thanks

    You probably need to use a full width template - on that page, the space is only this wide:

    #wrapper #main-wrapper #main #primary {
        background-color: white;
        float: left;
        padding: 5px;
        width: 660px;
    }

    and the width for the forum is this:

    #wrap {
        min-width: 650px;
        padding: 0 20px;
    }

    isn't there a way to make it so the forum fits into the frame?
    Or is there a way the forum can come up as a popup window when you click forum on the menu?

    I don't know how that is set up - I tried to change it in the CSS -- to no avail. See if there are settings in the forum set up.
