Hey Guys,

I'm going to be starting up a new website soon with mutiply forums on it... and i want it to that the forum is under the main website, so for example, on the left hand side, it has the list of forums and website links... and when you click on a link, it goes there but you still keep the layout....

I hope you know what i mean...

Can you guys pls help me, and tell me what i need to do.

thanks,

Cohen

Have them use the same stylesheet.

OK, are there instructions on this?? or tutorials or anything where it tells me what to do???

It is as simple as referencing the css file in your head section of code. If you want tutorials, try looking at some css tutorials (e.g. w3schools)

Haven't you now solved your problem? as long as you use they layout consistently, your pages will also be consistent.

Sort of, i want to know what i do with my main website layout code and what to do with putting it into my forum layout...

Hello you have 2 options

1. open your template css file and paste your style inside.
2. do the following changes to the php file you posted:

.......

/* 
if($stylesheet)
{
	$options = array(
		"limit" => 1
	);
	$query = $db->simple_select("themestylesheets", "stylesheet", "sid=".$stylesheet, $options);
	$stylesheet = $db->fetch_field($query, "stylesheet");

	header("Content-type: text/css");
	echo $stylesheet;
}
*/

echo ‘<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="yourCSSfileNAME.css" />’;

exit;
?>

I think it will work ;)

I would go with option two because then if you ever want to change your original css file you will only have to change it once.

Let us know if this hasn't worked for you.

argh...programming languages..css... although it makes me dizzy lookin at the codes but you can make a lot of cool stuff about it...
