I need help making my forum look like a forum. I know it can be done because it has been done on various sites.
One example is: http://gallery.menalto.com/forum
Before you point me to http://drupalart.org/phpbb , i have already tried that. It is a decent start, but only seems to work with drupal 4.6.x. I am using 4.7 rc2.
I have done the flatforum module and I can't get it the way i want it.
I know that a decent forum can be achieved with the drupal forum module, i have seen it on a handful of sites. But I have not been able to find any documentation on the subject other than the drupalart.org/phpbb page that is for 4.6.x.
I find it very odd that there is no "how-to" or handbook page addressing this issue. I have seen this question asked numerous times and only halfway answered.
What I have so far is at: http://ross.crickster.com/node/2
the theme is simply bluemarine wrapped up and centered. so all of the original css is still there (in case you think that might be why the posts are so plain)
any help I can get on this will be greatly appreciated. I plan to document each step I take as I make progress and then post a detailed how-to in the handbook upon completion.
