I am considering using invision forums on my website but I would need to set it up embedded into the page and working alongside other features such as articles, tutorials, etc, and have a left sidebar running my own stuff.

PHPfreaks pulled this off rather well, and I was wondering how difficult this setup was and what tricks are required before I purchase invision forums.

I'm guessing it's nothing more than a simple include() statement inside of a table cell, or modding the IPB index.php to have the PHP Freaks website wrapped around the IPB content.

If this could be outlined in further detail, that would be awesome, as I too am looking to accomplish something like this.

Hey if anyone needs a walkthrough I just got it working adding my sites header, leftbar, and footer to the boards.

I am still working on skinning and setting all the values on the forums but you can see the layout at [a href=\"http://www.youstockit.com/forums\" target=\"_blank\"]http://www.youstockit.com/forums[/a]

If anyone wants a quick walkthrough email me at bug@doombugmedia.com

Basically involved two included in the index.php file for the forums and then having to modify the footer file for the board, think I cheated on that one.
