this is probably an easy one. i am building a web page and i'd like to have a link to a particular subforum in my phpBB3 forum. what would the statement look like? i guess this would only work if guests have at least see or read priveleges for the particular sub-forum.

The link to the main forum looks like this:
<a href="phpBB3/index.php">forum</a>

Suppose the name of a subforum i want to point to is "projects"

you would need to find the forum ID
like the new forum on phpbb.com for the events and meetings has the ID as 105

so the link would be http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewforum.php?f=105

ok thanks, sry for delay. so for example if i just needed a link that points to a local path i would use only the following assuming the forum was in the same folder:

viewforum.php?f=105
