ah ok. i didnt explain myself clearly :(

i dont want to sell the pictures... I will be selling a kit (the ecommerce bit) so i need a forum for the people to chat in and then a gallery for them to upload what they did with the kit...

i have seen other companies do this where there is a front welcome page and then link to forum/gallery/shop etc but they all are within the same website.

thats the bit i dont understand - i can get all the bits to work seperatley ie i run forums, gallery i can suss too and ecommerce i can do but i cant figure out how to merge them all into one website - i am not the most technically or programmer type person so an idiots guide would be greatly appreciated...

You need to perform two steps:
  • Visual integration (create a coppermine theme that matches your overall site's layout)
  • Logical integration: we call this "bridging" - you share the user management between Coppermine and the app you bridge with

Both steps are being covered in detail both in the documentation that comes with coppermine as well as thousands of postings on this board - don't expect to be spoon-fed; please read at least the documentation first.
