    Hi all,
    I searched this forum and also via google. More I read the threads, more I got confused because I am a novice in all these HTML, php stuff. working hard to learn.

    I already have a phpbbforum running in http://www.mysite.com/forum
    I would like to use WP and install in http://www.mysite.com

    THen I wish to create links like home, about, contact,forum on the main WP - index.php page.
    So when somebody clicks on forum, it should point to http://www.mysite.com/forum

    I will also add similar links in forum header so that I can come back to home.

    I would like to use the same template that I used in phpbb forum (conundrum 1.08-mikelothar.com) in WP for consistency.

    Can this be done?

    Please let me know in simple steps to start.

    Appreciate yuor help.

    thanks,

    drb

    If you are a "novice" as you stated... there won't be any "simple" steps. Just what Churchill said to his people when the war started :)

    In a theme you can have links to anything you want, including your forum.
    How to put a link in your forum to your homepage - it's a question to be asked in the phpbb support forum.

    You can design a theme that looks similar to whatever you posted (BTW, unless you make the URIs clickable I will not visit them; no time for copy/paste) - there is a lot of good stuff about theme design:

    Thanks moshu:

    I have only one database allowed. I am already using for phpbb. So for WP, can I create different tables with different prefix like WP_ while phpbb already has phpbb_

    So with one database can I have full functional WP?

    thanks,

    drb

    Yes, you can have your WordPress tables in a database with other tables from other software packages.

    Sorry asking in bits: thought too many questions will put off people.

    I am using conundrum 108 (www.mikelothar.com) template for phpbb and would like to use the same for WP. Is there a way to do that?
