How do I get my forum to look like this

  • I installed this cool forum but doesn’t look like it’s actually part of wordpress and I am stuck on a few thing, I hope you can help.

    Where it says “$bb->wp_table_prefix” – where do I find the prefix?

    $bb->wp_home & $bb->wp_siteurl – that is just my site url only, nothing more – http://www.blah.com

    Once I do the above how to I make the forum part of wordpress, will it automtically look like this forum?

  • Also I put the forum in my WP root directoy and called it “forum”

    It would be listed in your WordPress wp-config.php – by default, it’s wp_

    That’s fine, no trailing slash.

    Nope – it’s an independent application that you need to style to get it to look like your WP site.

    Search for threads tagged “integration”:

    This was a good summary I thought:

    Ok thanks, I found this theme on a website but it doesn’t work, just shows text and login boxes.

    Not sure what theme you mean or where you are seeing this, but it sounds like you are seeing the unstyled HTML. There is probably a problem with the CSS or path to the CSS.
