[FusionBB Versions: All]
Do you have information or news that your members need to see?
Adding that information to the portal is easy to do... (so is Portal configuration!)
Adding News to the Portal
The first step is to pick the forum(s) that you are going to post your news into. (Note that not all posts will be made to news.) Once you've decided on a forum, go in to your AdminCP to:
Forums >> Manage Forums >> (pick your chosen forum) >> Edit Forum
On the option Portal Display, choose News from the drop-down box.
When you make your post in your chosen forum, tick the check box that says "This is news".
- Once you've made the post, it will show up on your Main Page.
Configuring the Portal Layout
To configure this, go to:
AdminCP >> Edit >> Edit Portal Layout
The left three columns are Left, Center, and Right of main portal. Things will appear in their respective column based on the the number you give them.
For example, you want the Online particle box in the left column, your news in the center column, and the Recent Topics box in the right column.
- Go to the line for ONLINEBOX , follow that line over to the section titled LEFT(under MAIN PORTAL), and put a 1 there--since you want that box to be the first box on the left.
Next, go to the CURRENTNEWSBOX and follow that line over to the CENTER column and put a 1 there since you want it to be the first item in the center column.
Finally, for the RECENTTOPICBOX line, follow it over to--and put a 1 in-- the RIGHTcolumn as you want that to appear as the number 1 item in the column.
You would continue organizing in that same fashion until you had everything in order the way you wanted to in your left, center, and right columns of the portal.
FusionBB works on a cache system, so any changes made will only update when the cache updates. If you do not want to wait on this, you can go to:
AdminCP >> Database >> Re-Sync >> Clear Cache
This will clear the cache so you won't have to wait for it to update.
