    Default iframe alternatives

    hey

    I have a site with a layout I love, and a phpbb forum. I want to include the phpbb forum in the site's main layout. An Iframe works perfectly, but I really want to stay away from frames/Iframes. I also tried php include, it also works well, but when you click on a link or thread it brings you to the phpbb forum(without the site layout). Basicly i want http://statecollegespikes.com/fanzone/board/ without the Iframe.

    P.S. I have searched all through the Forums and could not find anything about this. I may have missed it though, if so I am sorry.

    Hey Scotty, the solution is I-frames, thats what their good for, might as well use them.

    I want to include the phpbb forum in the site's main layout. An Iframe works perfectly
    good call

    another way (that won't work for what you mentioned, but another way is to put that include into a scrollable div. ex:

    Code:
    <!-- css -->
    .scrollable {width:200px; height:500px; border:1px solid black; overflow:auto; }
    
    <div class="scrollable">
     <?include('whatyouwant.php); ?>
    </div>
    _good luck

    There is a quote missing after .php above, but, yes, that is a good way to include it.
