    Hi everybody!

    A quick question:

    I run this forum, facebookdater.com, and would like to make it primarily a blog, and then have the forum as secondary offering.

    Can you sugeest a theme where I can use the same header and background that I have now?

    Well you can use any theme with a GPL license. Or you can create your own theme. The easiest is to look at the content and funtionality of the theme. Then chuck the style.css and replace it with your own style.css. When a theme, or any website in general, is made correctly according to the W3C recommendations and standards, the presentation or design/style of it is all in the CSS. Therefore you can make any theme look just the way you want, with the layout you want, the graphics you want etc.

    Anybody know of a theme that would look good with that background and header?

    Pick one here.

    Then copy the styles out of the style.php from your phpBB and add them to the selectors in the style.css from WordPress. People won't even be able to see the difference between the blog and the forum it will be seamless.

    Why use someone else's design when you're happy with the one from your forum?

    hi enggie, the best way to look it is to screeen grab your site put everything from the banner and above into the header.php file, board index and below into the footer.php and create the background using css and apply it to the body

    thats a quick simple way I can describe what to do
