Copying another website rarely works out in practice.

In rpland's case, they took the laGusta theme and modified it. laGusta is no longer available legally, as its creators stopped trading.
To assume is to hope that those who came before had the presence of mind and capacity to implement the dreams of those who would come after.

You either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become the villain. It seems you have chosen which, and now I must do the same.

sure... learn some html and php and edit the index.template.php file.


It's not recommended though. The header has all sorts of important stuff in it

I don't tend to help people that are trying to rip off existing sites, it ends up being a waste of time as it invariably doesn't get the momentum behind it and fizzles out.

Copying the look and exact functionality of a site doesn't get you greatness. Do your own thing rather than copy someone else.

Here's the deal. My colleagues are a bit more straightforward (blunt?) than I so let me explain what's happened here.

You actually did receive an answer from Kindred because what you asked were design questions, not support (i.e. something is wrong and needs fixing):

sure... learn some html and php and edit the index.template.php file.

He even told you which file to work on. But, both he and Arantor posted why it's a bad idea:

It's not recommended though. The header has all sorts of important stuff in it

Just out of curiosity; are you actually wanting to remove the header or just add a logo or image instead where the forum name is?

And yet you've also asked how to clone the server tracker stuff they have. And the layout.

Seems a bit funky, eh?
