Topic: Embedding using Iframes

Hi I have been setting up using this forums software today and I have embedded it into my page using iframes
(if there is a better way to do it please tell me)
but anyway what I want (and can't seem to work out how to do) is to set up the page so that my page length will adjust with the forum rather than having to do it like this: http://www.iggpog22.com/HTML_files/iggpog22/forumc.html
(btw I am not a websitedesigner like it says. go home page you see it says i just do for fun)

thank you for any assistance

Re: Embedding using Iframes

punbb is easy to embed in your existing site without using an inline frame.  take the html for a normal page, open up your main.tpl and paste in the body contents from main.tpl into the content area of your normal page. then copy that whole page, and past it into your main.tpl (overwrite everything--be sure to back things up), save or upload.  then the forums will show up inside your website when you go to yoursite.com/forums (assuming you've placed the forum in a folder named forum) the same way it does .

Iframes don't replace PHP: you can of course embed a page from a server that allows PHP in a page on a server that doesn't using iframes.

That's because the program you used change all the paths to absolute paths on your harddrive (so the images can be seen by you and nobody else).

Re: Embedding using Iframes

ok thanks I am using dreamweaver is there someway I can make it more cooperative?

Re: Embedding using Iframes

Don't use it? tongue
Seriously though, a regular text-editor like Notepad or Wordpad works fine for editing PHP files and doesn't do all the crazy stuff that Dreamweaver is prone to do. You can even download slightly more advanced programs for free (ie: I use a program called Notepad2, which has line numbers, syntax highlighting, etc)

by not using the file browser features of dw.  just type the images in as relative paths (whether they exist on your local computer or not), or edit the files on the server using the ftp site manager.

Re: Embedding using Iframes

ok i'll try working on this thanks all (more suggestion still welcome, who knows maybe somone will come up with a no effort solution)
