Portal
This was discussed awhile back.. What would you guys think of some tweaking with the portal and making it the homepage?

If you don't know what the portal is..

RE: Portal
Already discussed though and people didn't like the idea. Everyone is going to go to the forum anyways, and the portal i've made available in the QuickLinks.

RE: Portal
If the portal showed better information on it, then it'd be pretty legit. However, a lot of work would need to go into it. There would be CSS and template mods needed. We'd have to look into how to change the content.

RE: Portal
I've modified the portal to show a little better. Let me know what you guys think.

RE: Portal
From my point of view, it looks great, but then again I wasn't here to see the previous version. 
Can I suggest a little something though? I see you are showing 10 full posts, which makes the page a bit 'long'. Why not show chunks of these posts?

RE: Portal
That is a very good idea. I still need to go into the code and figure out how it decides which threads to show. 

I'll have to add this to my to-do list. Still, a great idea though!

RE: Portal
For me it'd be ideal to show latest threads (not posts) with the amount of replies, etc. I rarely ever browse the forum, I just check the most recent stuff. And as I do that all the time I don't miss out on anything :)

It does show it on the side but that's less convenient for me. IMO the index is fine as it is though.

It does show the threads though. What the portal displays is a list of recent threads, and it displays the first POST from those threads :)

I don't really use it yet though either. Until this forum becomes super active I'm still able to keep up with he Recent Posts link. Otherwise I'll be more of a browser in the future.

The portal doesn't show the most recent though. Here are the most recently created (not necessarily the most recently posted) and they're not all on there.


I don't know why threads like this show on there:
