    Hi all
    I have a problem with the WPforum plugin in that I have managed to set out so I actualy get the forum to show up on custom page. btw am using the Newsweek theme.
    The problem is when I click on a forum to access it I get a blank page even though there is an entry in the forum, and secondly it reverts to using the page.php instead of the custom page.
    What am I doing wrong? help please

    If you mean the custom page then this is waht I did. I took the post (single.php) and modified it thus; at the very top add
    <?php
    /*
    Template Name: forum-page.php
    */
    ?>
    This identifies it as a new template. After the lines
    <?php get_header(); ?>
    <!--forum-page.php-->
    Add this code;
    <div id="forum-page" class="fullwidth">
    </div>
    Scroll to the bottom and remove any reference to sidebars if your theme supports them and save as forum-page.php.

    In your style.css add this code (best placed in the structure bellow coment-in code);
    #forum-page {
    width:94%;
    }
    and save. Go to write page and give a title of Forum, switch to HTML mode and add <!--WPFORUM--> then scroll down and in the page template drop down menu select your new template which is forum-page.php and save. Done.
    I have 2 blogs with the same themes and same configuration but for the version of wordpress. Am using 2.6 on one and this set up works fine but with 2.6.2 the forum returns the above mentioned problem. I am assuming its a compatibility issue btwn wpforum and wp2.6.2.

    Sorry correction; after the <?php get_header(); ?> the insertion would read;
    <!--forum-page.php-->
    <div id="forum-page" class="fullwidth">
    </div>

    Hope this helps.
