Getting Started!

Hi everyone,

I just started creating a site for my guild today, and I have a question regarding the forum tab.

Our guild already has it's own forum, using PHPBB. We don't really want to bother transferring over to the included forum. So I was wondering if it'd be possible to have the forum tab redirect to our PHPBB forums rather than going to its own forum.

I think that the best you could do is have the forums tab open up a blank GP page, and the content type being "embedded page".

I THINK that's what will work for you.

Hello there!

If you create a custom tab bar (like these ones Mottie has laid out in this post but keep scrolling down he has various other options that would still work for you), you can assign a hyperlink to each tab button. You can easily have the forums tab button go back to your old ones.
