Support » Theme: Mission News » Required css codes for header and footer information

  • Hi,
    I have a phpBB forum. Moreover, I want to integrate it with WordPress to create a portal. The tops and bottoms will belong to the MS theme and the others to the phpBB theme. Just what are the codes for this header and footer? A lot of code in the CSS file conflicts with phpBB. Which ones do I need?

    Thanks.

    What I mean is:

    https://i.hizliresim.com/dw65jxf.jpg – header
    https://i.hizliresim.com/h7ryqxl.jpg – footer

    With the header I want to show the phpBB form as if it were a page of WordPress. Eventually it will be in a subfolder. The search part is important and social media buttons.

    Although I have privatized the lower part, I want it to remain the same.

    Do you think it can be done? Can you help with these codes?

    Since phpBB is its own platform, it isn’t going to run in parallel successfully with WordPress. However, you could embed the phpBB forum inside a page using an iframe, which is exactly the type of thing iframes are made to do.

    I’m not entirely sure how to develop this feature myself, but it looks like this plugin has it already figured out: https://wordpress.org/plugins/wp-w3all-phpbb-integration/

    Yes, I know the plugin. I was going to use it for syncing anyway.

    I thought it would be nice if I added the Mission News theme’s header and footer html codes as well as css codes at the top and bottom of the phpBB style.

    I removed the header and footer parts of the phpBB style. It will be better that way.

    Thanks.

    It’s harder than I thought. I give up. Sorry to unnecessarily bothering you.

    Hi Ben, me again. Although I say that I have given up on this request, it continues to stay inside me.

    A few questions:
    Is only the css code in the style.css file sufficient for the headers and footers to work well?
    Is it possible for me to parse these css codes for footer and header? Because too much code is nested and it will be very difficult one by one.

    Also, I think I need to convert the php menus to html.

    Here is a demo for the header to better show what I want to do:

    If you need to copy out some of the CSS, it might be easier to get it from the SCSS files on Github: https://github.com/BenSibley/Mission/tree/master/sass. You’d have to rewrite the SCSS to vanilla CSS, but at least it is organized there. The style.css file in Mission News is auto-generated and isn’t meant to be read or edited by a human being, so it’s kind of a mess.

    If you have to recreate the menus with plain HTML then I would recommend viewing the site’s source code and copying & pasting the menu from there.

    It was great of you to provide this information. Thank you so much. But I couldn’t understand some things. For example, I can’t find the source of expressions like $baseline-height. So I can’t compile the files. The phpBB style I use also has such expressions. What file are these codes in?

    Those are variables which are all defined here: https://github.com/BenSibley/Mission/blob/master/sass/_variables.scss

    You’ll have to do a find + replace for the variables, but then you can use a converter to change the SCSS into plain CSS.
