    Can you be more specific?

    Do you want a page in your site to 'be' a forum? If so there are several plugins out there.

    Do you want a link in your navigation to link to the forum? If so it depends on how your going about making your navigation. Can you show code?

    Or do you just want a link to the forum in the content of the page? That's just a simple href.
    Stop making things so hard on yourself.

    ok..I would like to have a link in both of my navigation menu that links to a phpbb forum...I'm not worry about if the forums looks like my blog or not I just want to make that link point to my phpbb installation
    thanks

    Not sure how your main nav is built so some code would be nice. As far as the sidebar nav if it's the default like:
    PHP Code:
    <?php wp_list_pages('title_li=<h3>' __('Navigation') . '</h3>' ); ?>
    I'm not sure of hand how to mod that.

    you could try this though. Put it at the top of your theme header.php
    PHP Code:
    <?php
    if ( is_page('forum') ) {
    header'Location: http://www.yourforum' ) ;
    }
    ?>
    or if that fails because of a header already sent maybe a:

    PHP Code:
    <?php
    if ( is_page('forum') ) {
    echo 
    "<meta http-equiv=\"Refresh\" content=\"5; URL=http://www.yourforum\">";
    }
    ?>
    But placing this right after or before the other meat data.

    haven't tested it but maybe.
