    Editing the phpbb template. All Ryoko's site really is made of is a REALLY nice phpbb theme.

    You would have to make one, and its pretty hard :(

    Well, yeah. Sorry. Because, when coding temlates/mods for a forum system, there are certain "Rules" you have to follow. :(

    If you dont follow these "Rules", then you wont have a working forum :p

    Then theres nothing we can really help you with, just edit the template file ( make sure to back it up ).

    there is about 30 template files for subSilver, or any template, I need to know which one to edit and put the table for the sidebar in. I have dreamweaver set to accept TPL files.

    I hate TPL files. I dont really know how to use them :eek:

    Thats why I dont like PHPBB, it uses frames and TPL files, witch are a bad choice IMO.

    The tpl files just make it more dynamic and more easily customizable. But to each his own, anyway can anyone tell me how to add a sidebar who knows phpbb?
