hi guys! 

I have a none WP website. 

I installed WP on a sub directory for my blog system :- /blog. 

Do I need to install another copy of WP in another sub directory so I can use these forums on my website? :- /forums. 

Any help would be appreciated to point me in the right direction as I feel this forum would work perfectly for our website.

Many thanks,

Nick

Hi @nickt,

No, you don't need to install new WordPress. You can install wpForo in the WordPress, which is located in /blog/ sub-directory. Once you installed it the forum will be available in /blog/community/ page.

Thanks for the reply, Robert.

Could I change that to point to /forum ? 

Many thanks,

Nick

Yes, just navigate to Dashboard > Forums > Settings > General Tab and change the Forum Base URL option.

Please read the doc: https://wpforo.com/docs/root/getting-started/forum-page/

Hi again!

Managed to install.

Now im wondering if i can truely get it 100% full page width? Changed the theme to full page width but the page still looks kinda squashed?

Also, how can i get rid of that thin border line that the template leaves?

Like i say, i dont really know my way around WP so im hoping you guys can point me in the right direction?
