Can a sub-forum be displayed on another site?

I'd like to be able to display a subforum on another site, where the people there would be able to discuss their own specialty discussions without the rest of the forums, but on the main forum their subforum would be available.

How can this be accomplished?

May be it could be possible to achieve via 1st page news add-on?
It's about to display the list of topics on external pages.

That's not exactly what I'm looking for, since clicking one of the new topics will send them to my site's full forum, rather than just their part of my forum.

I want their entire subforum to be available to them on their site, without being able to see or use the rest of the forums, so that visitors to their site have the focus on them.

On my site though, thier subforum would appear with all of the forums.

I've been searching for this functionality for years, and haven't been able to find it. I'm hoping that minibb can do this somehow.

That's not up to miniBB.

What ever is kept on one site, is kept on one server. Your website is kept on another server. If you want both servers up to one database, either this database should be used commonly, either it should be synchronized.

How? That's the question to professionals. It surely can be solved with miniBB, but not within the free support area. It's a very custom task and we provide consultations in this aspect only within the Premium support rates.

Thanks for your quick reply. It's not everyday that the CEO answers questions in their own public forums!

So how about thisr approach:

Suppose I link from their site to their subforum.

Is it then possible to either copy a template and modify it for their sub, so when they view their subforum the breadcrumbs, and other links/references to my site are not displayed?

That way, when they visit their own subforum from their site, they won't be confused by my site's content, but when outside visitors come to my site they can see and participate in that subforum as part of my site's larger forum?

It would be better if you could represent this with screenshots.
Hard to understand from words :) they could be interpreted differently in many ways.
