  • Base Template

    Hi there,

    is there a template that everything sits in? Like a baseline or ROOT template?

    I want to have the same style behind the forum on every page.

    thanks for the help.

      That would be the vBulletin 3 style. You can choose a 'Parent Style' for each style and they will inherit the settings from this parent.

        So i would create my own style and set it as the default styles parent? I not sure i follow exactly.

        I have a site look and feel already created and I want to wrap the vb forum in my site's style. After some fiddeling I succeeded in getting it done for the forum front page (by editing the FORUMHOME template), but not all subsequent pages. Let me rephrase my original question.. is there a way I can embed the vb app into a single template and have all forum pages (forum home, thread view, login, etc.. ) use that parent level style template?

        Just life the entire forum and dump it into a table cell, say. Is there a template variable that stands for the entire forum? I noticed vars in templates like $header $footer, etc. Is there one called $Forum?.

        much appriciated,


        ps - another quick question... what is the highest level template using the default style for vb 3 (parent of FORUMHOME)?
