Integration of a forum within Wordpress
I am attempting to integrate a forum into wordpress in such a manner that the completed site has the same look and feel regardless of where they are.
I have struggled for the last two days with a tool called WP-United to combine PHPBB 3.0.6 and Wordpress 2.9.1 to no avail. The problems caused with the exercise almost resulted in a laptop being thrown through a window!!!
Does anyone have any suggestions on how to combine the two, whether using a plugin to Wordpress or a bridging tool? I would like the finished article to have only one set of logons, but most importantly to share the same template themes.
