I am a professional system administrator but I use PRO-IT for installations, upgrades, and hosting to free up my time for other projects. It's like multiplying myself! PRO-IT's expertise in MovableType impresses me to no end. Even tricky things like moving from a static site to a dynamic site, or fixing strange Perl Library problems are no problem for them. I plan on using PRO-IT in the future!

phpBB Layout Customization

Our Forum Layout Customization service takes care of the visual integration of your phpBB forum driven pages within your overall Web site look and feel.

Why customize the forum pages layout?

phpBB and other forum packages come with a default interface as standard.

The problem arises when you wish to manage visitors who reach your forum pages from outside references such as search engines and other Web sites.

These visitors may not recognize what Web site they are browsing since your forum pages are based on the default look and feel.

Their only chance to be impressed by your Web site visual identity is to manually change the address on their browser address bar from:

http://www.yourwebsite.com/forum/

into:

http://www.yourwebsite.com/

As you could easily imagine, very few visitors will do this.

Hence the need for the Forum Layout Customization service which basically allows you to co-brand your entire forum driven pages to smoothly integrate within your overall Web site look and feel.

What are the benefits?

Your major benefits are:

  • Improved web site sections layout consistency;
  • Visitors immediately realize that it is your Web site they are browsing;
  • It becomes much easier for your audience to recognize your forum pages when they get back to your Web site.

 

PRO IT Service has two important techniques for customizing your forum layout:

1) Header and Footer

Through this service we can integrate only your header and footer from the overall Web site interface.
