Managing Wrappers


Skins & Wrappers

Wrappers allow you to create header and footer HTML code to either wrap globally around all forums, or around a single forum or group of forums. You can manage wrappers using the tools available within Skins & Wrappers » Manage Wrappers.

You can apply different wrappers to different forums allowing you to customize each forums header and footer HTML. To associate a wrapper with a specific forum you should set the wrapper when editing the forum or category within Manage Forums » Manage Forums. To apply a wrapper globally to all forums you should specify the wrapper on the Manage Setting » Forum Settings page.

An example of a simple wrapper is provided within the Using Wrappers section of this guide.
