Is there documentation somewhere about how to link the two programs. As I understand it PhotoPost uses the phpbb database but where do I point to it? I have PhotoPost installed and running and now want to add phpBB.
I also use phpBB2 with subBlack Template. I want to be sure that I can use this template on the Gallery without being a php/html whatever guru. It is really important that it looks apart of our forums and web site....
Are you able to set private Galleries? By that I mean, Creating a Gallery Section that a group of members can only see and upload to? I mean *Private*, you can not even see the Gallery Title unless you have access....
Also, are there any Demos that have this product working with a phpBB forum?
I am currently using a phpBB Photo MOD that works darn well but it lacks any kind of notification either visual [There are X new Photos] or my email. I assume this product does either one of these or perhaps both [for new comments too].

The Photopost Integration for phpBB, Ubbthreads, VB3, IBP and IBP2 use CSS Integration. Meaning if the modifications are based on CSS wrapping images around tables then the look should be the same. However note we do not use the templates of those forums so if there is a HARD CODED template modification you would need to adjust our ppopen or ppclose templates.
Now alot of times if you have some CSS that is not looking just right it can be solved by editing the forum CSS and making the image url's full url's not relative ones. This of course assumes your issue is CSS
If you PM me a url to your board and admin login I can take a peek and give you some hints on what specifically your issue is.
As far as Demo's those sites rotate so I don't know what demo's there are but if you do an Internet Search on Powered by Photopost I am sure you will find Photopost integrated with phpBB. I have done lots of installs with phpBB.
Not sure why you need admin login in..... Anycase, yes the template for my phpBB [SubBlack] uses a css file. I do not know a lot about this file but I have "tweaked" it before.
You can take a look at my site, it is very heavly MOD'ed with phpBB Mod's. It is not very standard at all. While I do not know how to Code, I do know how to read install.txt files and look for help when I run into problems.
Ok, now I am using forum integration and everything shows up perfectly under the admin menu, however the text is not right in all the main tables everywhere else, and the alignment of some of the header images is off.
I have also tried not using the forum integration by way of uploading my phpBB .css file to the /review and /ads stylesheet directories (http://bayareakiteboarding.com/revie...ubsilversh.css) and changing the relative url's to full url's for the images, however after repeated attempts and verification of the url's I did not have any luck getting the images to show up properly. What did happen then, however, is all the text was rendered correctly.
Using Forum Integration = Incorrectly rendered text & strange image behaviors
Selecting .css file and changing url's = Proper text, but no images
I am really having quite a bit of trouble here. Any help would be appreciated.

The forum integration is only CSS integration. Looking at your header they look different cause you have different html. Still is up to the customer to put whatever html they want around photopost to make it look more like their forum.
As an example you want to add this at the top of your header of what you have already in reviewpost etc
I have no idea what you are talking about. It looks quite fine to me. The text looks the same to me.
If your talking about the italic description on classifieds on the showcat script that is part of classifieds. You can alter that template and remove the italic tag. The CSS integration is seamless when I look here
Actually it is not an unwanted gradient. There is suppose to be a gradient there when you mark a cat as not having thumbs. I always turn off the show post counts for categories without thumbnails in the admin options so there is a full line gradient bar which is desirable.
In fact when I view your sight you have somehow altered the css to take out that gradient of the phpbb plus does not have a catHead class
