I would like to do something very similar to the JForum web site. Have only web application and embed JForum as an additional functionality of the site, while keeping it's look & feel like header, footer, etc.
I've seen how to handle the security part, but couldn't find any more information on this.

Any guidelines ?

Thanks

The templates use a common header and footer include files for all pages. You can modify these to wrap the jForum produced pages in your look and feel.

If that doesn't work, a common method to do this is to trim down the template header and footer to the bare minimum and use and iFrame inside your application's wrapper to display jForum pages.

Note: There's a lot of iframe onload javascript handler code out there that will re-size the iFrame to match the size of the dynamic page. So it can look pretty seamless to the users.

Hi!

And what about div? I tried to do that, but got weird look when resizing the browser window - the forum's size won't change at all. How could I fix that?

Thanks in advance
