Activating the Portal News
The forum you post the news item to must be enabled as a news forum.
- Go to the Admin panel under Edit Forum >> Portal Display and choose "News" from the drop down menu there.
- When you make your post, tick the check box that says "this is news".
Once you've made the post, it will show up on your Main Page.
