I have a separate phpBB forum and I want it to open below the navbar, on the same website, so that it will look like as part of the website, something like that (Image edited with Microsoft Paint):

Forum same page


If you want the phpBB page to have the same look/feel of your site, there are two ways to do it.

1) Build a phpBB 'skin' with the elements you want.

2) Build a custom page template, and put the call to phpBB inside the page area of the template.

Either way is probably a lot of work; phpBB and WP have totally different ways of 'skinning' a page. You might consider a somewhat easier third way:

3) Add your WP theme header image (and maybe some WP site menu links) to the header of the phpBB install with a custom phpBB 'skin'.

I'd also ensure that the phpBB installation is in a totally different folder from any WP folder.

And, you'll need to find a way to integrate a WP login with the phpBB login, passing credentials between both as needed.

A big project (although #3 is easiest, perhaps, if you don't need login credential sharing between phpBB and WP).
