Link Databases in phpbb..

I was wondering if its posible to Make multiple boards and link them to 1 data base but have each act as there own board in phpbb..

And if there is any way to automate this so i can create a Buncha boards with a few clicks of a button.

An example of something I want to do is at http://forums.beyondunreal.com/index.php? If u scroll down ull see community and There theres a buncha forums that are all run of of that forum but are almost completely different. They can be run with different templates and what not... Exept I dont realy want them to Seem like subforums I want people to think there completely different,, But mainly I want it to be on PHPBB.

If theres a different way to do this please tell me..

That just looks like a sophisticated mod for vBulliten. I'm not sure if there is one like that for phpbb, but I'd check out http://www.phpbb.com and http://www.phpbbhacks.com to see if there are any there. I know there is a mod for different headers for each page, so I don't see why there wouldn't be one like this.

if i remeber correctly, there is an option in the standard phpbb installion page for a 'table prefix' it normally defaults to 'phpbb' but you can just change it to 'board1', 'board2', etc...

would that make them look and feel like 2 completely different boards.... ? I dont realy want them to function together i want them to have there own sets of users. actualy it would kinda be cool to have all the users together... But would it make the boads look completely different? Or could I make it so they use different layouts for different sections?

Actualy if some one could tell me how to do that on vbuliton Im starting to consider it as a suitable comprimise....

Just change the table prefix, that's all you need to do.
