Using Forum Skin as cpg theme
« on: February 27, 2005, 05:16:57 pm »

I've searched around as best as I could and I haven't been able to find anything useful for what I'm trying to do. Basically, I'd like to be able to make my gallery appear to be just another section on my forums. My question is if there is any easy way of doing this, because as I see it right now, I would have to modify the cpg theme according to the forum skin and include everything in order for it to look right. It seems like a really big job. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

You need to do a customized skin for each one, that ends up matching.

So there really is no easy way of doing it? I'll have to build the coppermine theme from scratch pretty much and just pull everything off my forum templates. Well, thanks anyways.

no, there is no easier way, you can't use your forum's theme files to be used in coppermine directly, as the theming engines differ. You have to do this as suggested and build a coppermine theme that matches your bbs' theme. Using the ouput from your forum to create the core html for the coppermine theme is of course OK as first step, you just need to customize from that point on.

The easiest way is to find a theme that most closely suits your forum, then edit it by using CSS (assuming your forum uses css). Just add the CSS classes you want to use from your forum, into the style.css file. Then edit your template.html and theme.php files to use the new classes.
