This is a XenForo 2 customisable add-on that allows you to stylise your articles forum to look like a traditional news display style.

Once installed, create a node with "Article" forum type and display style as "Preview".

Copyright removal:
A simple copyright is added in the footer of the articles forum view and thread view. This can be disabled without payment. Head to "Template modifications" and turn the switch off for "PAGE_CONTAINER".

Make articles your homepage:
Admin CP: Setup > Options > Basic options > Index page route > Enter url of the article node

Add widgets to the sidebar:
Create a widget, select "Forum view: Sidebar" and add the following in the "Display condition":
in_array($xf.reply.containerKey, ['node-X','node-X'])
Note: Change 'X' with the node ID number. The number found at the end of the URL when viewing the node whether via the frontend or backend. Add as many nodes as you want, followed by a comma as seen in the example above.

From 24/12/22 till 07/01/2023 the following coupon will give you £10 off: FESTIVE22

I recently started using the add-on for my new project on https://ivvvi.cool/community/. So far, I have been very pleased with its performance. It has made my work much more efficient and streamlined, and I have not encountered any issues or bugs. Overall, I would highly recommend this add-on to anyone in need of a reliable and effective solution for their project.
Thank you.
