I'm a newbie to customizing UBB, but have a rather daunting task ahead of me - creating a blog for my site.
I already have a fully functional UBB.classic 6.7.2, and figured that customizing a forum to look like a blog would probably be a neat thing to do. I now have a invisible forum (separate from the rest of the board) that allows only authorized users to create topics and post. Have customized the colors, graphics, etc. using custom styles. But now I need to get rid of the "my profile | directory login | register | search | faq | forum home" links, "Recent Visitors" box, "Posting rights" box, "Hop to" box, etc. - to make this look more like a blog separate from the board.
My research shows that this is possible using template customization, but I wanted some input from the experts here before I delve into this complicated code...
Any help is appreciated
