Is it possible to have my gallery look like my forum? I'm not sure if it is possible and I have read some of the post but am still confused. We selected a skin that we liked for our forum

Here is our gallery

It is, but you would need to modify your templates a bit. Most of it could probably be accomplished in the ppopen.tmpl and ppclose.tmpl templates where you use the "table wrapper" code of your custom style. If you duplicate that table wrapper, you'll see that your gallery is much closer to your new custom style than it is now.

So are you saying I would want to copy the table wrapper from my forum

Into the two files you mentioned?

And if so where is the table wrapper in the forum is it in a css file? Sorry for my ignorance. I know just enough to get by and make some changes. LOL

I didn't look at your html, but typically styles like that use some kind of <table> "wrapper" around their content to make it look nice. It's that html table code you'd replace in ppopen.tmpl and ppclose.tmpl.

I don't have time to look at it right now - family coming over for the holiday - but I will try over the weekend if I can to see what code your site might be using.
