Style my forum to look like a page of my website


I am new to the forums and was wanting to know if it is possible to style a forum to look like the page of a website.

For example I have a client who is wanting a discussion forum on the website I am designing for them but they want it to look like every other page of the website so can I use my website css to do this or embed the forum content into the html and keep the header and footer from the rest of the site.

What I want to do is place the forum elements into the grey box below the image (image at link below)

Thanks in advance.

    You can do either.


    Once you have installed your forum, go to the Dashboard, and enable the Embed plugin.

    Then go to Settings on the plugin to get the embed code you need.


    If you would rather style the forum to match the site, you can follow these instructions:

    I wouldnt use embed. Get someone to do it for you.

    Thanks for the response.

    So if I chose the style option I will just need to copy the master view to my themes folder and then add the include 'header.php' above the forum elements.
