  • Integrating with existing site


    I am the Technical Administrator at . We currently use ProBoards, but we're now looking to expand and vBulletin would appear to be the ideal solution for our community.

    However, we would like to maintain a constant look throughout the entire site, i.e. we would like the navigation bar down the left and the banner along the top to appear on the forum pages.

    Does vBulletin offer an easy method to do this? Such as, is there a global header file that all necessary code could be placed in?

    This may seem a bit of an odd question to ask, but we have looked at other solutions and most of them try to force you to use one set design and don't make seamless integration easy.

    Thanks in advance.

    Yes, you can do this with the vB template system. We do have a live demo of vB, including full access to the admin control panel. You can set one up for your own use from this page:

      By the way, there is no way to import your data from ProBoards.

      The operators of ProBoards, like many other free forum operators, hold your data hostage and will not give it to you, no matter how much money you offer them.

      Some day, someone will write a script to harvest all the posts and users from a ProBoards forum and convert it into a format that can be imported into vBulletin.
