If you install your SMF (Simple Machines Forum) in a subfolder, you will be able to access it using an address like mysite.com/forum  while your wordpress site will remain at the main mysite.com (or public_html folder also known as root folder)

The link and video below explain how to install SMF using fantastico for both main site and sub folder.
To install in a sub folder, enter the subfolder name that you want to use (e.g forum )into the part that says Install in Directory according to the tutorials below:

Hello Boss,

Thanks for the tutorial, it was really helpful. I was able to installed SMF in my domain subdirectory with the help of the tutorial.

I wish to ask for more of sure tutorials to be able to design the forum to look like NG2G.

Thanks.
It's possible if you believe it.

Thanks for this link Tony. I was about to read the section that treats this issue from my MOB now, when i saw this link you sent. I am about to implement it on a site i am working on.

Im sure reading my MOB and this one, will suffice.


Thanks!

Congrats but you need to put some information and posts there (maybe even some fake members )before expecting anyone to register. If not nobody will join. Please read the following for some tips on starting and growing a forum: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

Also SMF is known to have a big problem with spam memberships so you need to read the following post too on You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login : You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

And there are also templates for SMF that can make your site look different with different colours and designs but we stuck with the default theme because its compatible with most SMF plugins (or mods). Search google for SMF templates

You can also get some additional features through what are called mods. These are equivalent to plugins in wordpress and you can find some cool ones, just go to google.com and  search for SMF mods .

Yungcheda read the links on SMF spam first because you wont like yourself when the spammers start registering and bombarding your forum with spam. I can even see that one has already registered and soon willl probably start flooding your forum with automated crap posts. The suspect profile is MuseOnenerymn.

Hello Yungcheda, I am so sorry for the challenges you are experiencing with your forum set up.

But from the way you are sounding, it seems you are rushing the whole process. Try to take it one at a time, try to comprehend one step before moving to another. Also, remember patience is one of the qualities you must possess if  you want to succeed in online biz. Good luck !

I have another problem
1. I tried posting a new topic on my forum You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login but i got the message "an Error occured". Please what could be the reason?
Whenever you have an error message in your forum, atleast with my little knowlegde of smf, that means you installed a mod that is not compatible with your forum. So i will suggest you unistall the mod you install perhaps the spam mod you install initially.

2. How can I add videos and images to my forum?

I wish to ask for more of sure tutorials to be able to design the forum to look like NG2G.
We have done a lot of customization to get NG2G to look like this (mostly by way of mods). If there are any particular features you want us to explain just make the request. But we recently implemented the right sidebar on the home page showing top members, posts and other stuff and some other changes using a mod called SimplePortal. Very nice mod.
