phpBB 3 & Portals?

http://newcarnews.myfreeforum.org/

I would like to have a go at adding portals to my forum, but i read somewhere that there are certain templates that work better with portals than others? Can anyone point me in the right direction of some portal happy templates for phpBB 3 please?

Thanks

I'm not convinced we have any default ones that are great right now. You need any style that already has columns to it.

OK, thanks admin, I shall see what I can work with

Iv been looking on some of the demo sites and cant find any that have multiple columns,

Could you please tell me is this one would work? http://demo.phpbb3styles.net/SEO

Thanks

all templates would work with portals if the structure is there to hold them.

The structure and structure placement is something I've been fiddling with: http://portalogy.myfabforum.org/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=18

that rough guide is for proSilver based, subSilver2 based will come

OK, thanks Nick, Am I right in thinking that if I simply omit either the left or right block area code, only one side will have the portals? Or is there more to it then that?

Jake

yup, I done it so each column has a hidden comment, so for left side portals only you'd remove:

Code:
<!-- [+] right block area -->
   <td width="175" style="padding:4px;" valign="top">
   {MYFF.LATEST}
   </td>
<!-- [-] right block area -->


and vice versa for the left side, I'll try and add more to that guide.

Sounds good, I'm going to start working with portals and my forum tomorrow still got more planning and stuff to sort.

Thanks Nick

OK, I have been researching the portals and have another question.

If i wish to add portals to my forum on the left do i follow the instructions Nick gave me or is there anything else i need to do such as follow these instructions?

That template your on is subSilver2 based, the structure remains the same for prosilver and subsilver2 besaed templates, but the positioning of the strucute is different.

That thread is locked because the cdoing there uses div element and that proved to be to frail as it did the job, but width wise the forum never adjusted in the central div.

sit tight I'll be looking to get the rough guide up for subsilver2 based templates tomorrow, as you can see when you goto portalogy v-bb3, the template is subsilver2, so the code is in and working so I'll look to get that done tomorrow after work

rough subSilver2 based guide is up: http://portalogy.myfabforum.org/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=19
