Thankyou! Just the job!
Maybe worth a feature request to make the portal selectable by admin & thus the changes made by your common.php edit?
At a slight tangent - I'm amazed at the number of forums running FBB that run a default portal with default welcome particle box
You are viewing the default welcome message. This message can be customized by editing the portal_index language file located in the /languages directory. Have fun and enjoy the next generation in Community Software:
I know this is only viewable to guests but it looks naff & I think reflects poorly on FBB IMHO. Maybe a prompt for the admin to change this message during set-up?
