    Same to me, i would it seems like an iframe (forum loaded into the site).

    Or better: a module like any CMS + forum.

    To Clarify:

    OK all, thanks for your help so far!!

    To clarify I have attached an Image of what I am looking to do.

    If you could tell me which templates I should change to make this easiest. (and be most forward compatible with updates)

    (I got this to display by editing the forum_home template)

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    Do I just add a left margin for the content to give the left nav room, or is there a better way to do this?

    I apologize for the stupid quesions, this is the first time I have tried to heavly customize vbulletin.

    Does anyone know of a site I can use as an example that has their own left nav bar and the vbulletin "embedded" in the webpage?
    To get support you would need to post into forums related to your vB's version number!

    You would not need to touch one single php file it would only require template modications which are done from your admincp.

    All the best!

    PS : [shameless plug]You can checkout my PulseToday.net and PulseToday.net/ptmb to see an example of design integration. I did not touch one single php file for it [/shameless plug]

    WhSox21- I know how to change the header and footer, I am concerned about my left nav bar, and I wanted to know if anyone had a simple solution before I go digging into CSS and tables.

    Any ideas?
    You would actually use the header template for the left navigation.

    Something you can try doing is simply do this:
    Open your webpage up in HTML (right click, view source in most browser's case)
    Copy everything from the first character to <!-- Content -->
    Paste into the Header template while removing the duplicate code (IE: you don't want to have two <body> tags etc.)
    Then, copy everything after <!-- Left Bar --> to the end of the page
    Paste into the Footer template while removing the duplicate code (IE: you don't want to have two </body> or </html> etc.)
    Save and see how it looks, then refine it from there

    I haven't done it myself but I've seen quite a few sites accomplish it. For the most part its just playing with the templates to add in your header and sidebar. I know there is a plugin for vbulletin 3.5 which simplifies this. That plug in can be found here: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showt...hlight=sidebar

    How I want to integrate vbulletin into our website

    TruthElixirX-

    I am looking to integrate my current vbulletin into my current site:
    http://www.principiaproducts.com

    Someone mentioned slicing up the page as images. But as you can see with my current site, I have dropdowns in the header, and links in the left nav bar. I would like to retain the look and feel of my website but have vbulletin in the content area.

    Any suggestions?

    Skinning vbulletin is really easy, you can try skinning it yourself in the admin demo and see for yourself Typically, if you want to embed it into certain section, you can just modify the header and the footer templates to suit your need (add your embed heard and footer to the two templates). Further customization on the CSS should take you no more than one hour as well

    Cheers.

    Seemless integration into corporate website

    How easy is it to integrate vBulletin into a currently designed website?

    We dont want it to look like we just plopped a bulletin board in our site. (we want the look and feel to be seemless between our current design and the forums.)

    Thanks.
