When I think of web portals, I think of Google and Yahoo, but it sounds like you mean something like Mambo, Joomla and Postnuke.  Of course, now there are wiki and blog options as well.  I use Postnuke and have messed around with Joomla.  Postnuke supports both PHPBB and PHPBB2 through PNforum and PNPHPBB respectively.

Is that what you were asking about?

Look here.
Select "Portals (CMS)" from the tree on the left.  Most of them have demo sites you can look at with full admin access to play with.

Like Hrothgar I am a bit confused as to your question.  Do you want to run a portal on your website and integrate phpbb into it or what?  It really depends on what you want to do with your site.  Any ideas or examples?

phpbb is not a portal/CMS system.  It's just a forum system.

Simple Machines Forums (SMF) use a system called ssi that allows you to build your own portal quite easily.  I suggest you check it out.  I really prefer it over PHPBB.  The beta of PHPBB3 was released 2 or 3 days ago, by the way.

Set up a Wiki.  Probably much easier, if I'm understanding your question correctly.

what he said.

well actual it coding I guess. PHP being a widely used internet coding, much like HTML, etc.

Notice atthe bottom of these forums it says:

Powered by phpBB 2001, 2005 phpBB Group

That is what we are trying to figure out here.  Does he want to run a portal/blog, wiki, or a forum like this.  He isn't really clear on that.  He mentions forum software by name, but then talks about a web portal.  Hence the confusion.
