Having Major Porblems

edited May 2007 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
im having a big problem at the minute! I have created my website using CSS, it has an 800px by 600px layout; including a header, footer, sidebar, naviagation. the problem is that i want to constantly display the vanilla forum inside my content section, which is 600px wide so that the navigation, header and footer will always be displayed when using the forum. I also want the the forum to be constantly displayed inside the content section to maintain consistency on my web site. I was wondering if anyone can think of a solution. I have already tried using a html webpage called forum (forum.html) with a php include tag to the index page of the vanilla forum! I would really appreciate if someone could help me out!!!

    While Vanilla does scale well depending on the situation it sounds more like a theme/style issue. In order to understand said "Porblems" seeing said problem would be easier to understand how exactly you're including Vanilla into your existing layout.

    I use WordPress as my blog and have a page in which I display my forum. I use an iframe.
    <iframe src="http://www.yourdomain.com/Vanilla.1/index.php" width="100%" height="800px" frameborder="0" name="vanilla forum"></iframe>

    Lech - yes i have previously meantioned how i have included the forum on my existing layout - I have already tried using a html webpage called forum (forum.html) with a php include tag to the index page of the vanilla forum! ( The forum is displayed in the CONTENT section of my CSS website. this cause's probems because it only works for the index page of vanilla, then when the user navigates to another section of vanilla, the page expands to a fluid layout that reaches the full screen resolution of the users screen

    has anyone had any success integrating it into a page without an iframe? an iframe is indeed really easy but i don't like creating extra scrollbars.
