Hi Guys,

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

'eh the route i'd go would be using this one forum for posting blog posts, then use the phpnews addon to display the content of this forum to a site on yoru pain page (as most places would do with news)...

Yes smile

You can have custom templates for a particular forum then remove those links from the top. I've done something similar at my personal site. The people who run the blog write a lot for a couple weeks then they tend to back off/ stop. They enjoyed it tho smile

Does anybody know a good resource on "How-To" for custom templates? Like I said I'm new to this and need a comprehensive manual/guide.
