If I was to replace a ceiling how would you reattach the light fitting? I be never looked at one so was wondering if they fit to the board or you cut the board around and they stick to the joists?

Try to have the cable coming out at the edge of a joist , board with cable coming through the boards then screw the light fitting up catching the joist

Ok so you would cut a small hole for the wire and then use long screws that would go through the board and into the joist. Thanks ctplastering for clearing that up.
