Awesome and was easy to do for a beginner like me. Had some extra questions and all got answered and now it looks all fine.
Brilliant and easy to follow tutorial which helped my forum get the exact look I wanted for the front/home page - thanks a lot for this!
Excellent tutorial to set up a portal. XF team may be good in development area but they fell short when it comes to tweaks and versatility of their apps, assuming all customers are tech savvy. This void is filled by people like RobParker with their contribution. Thanks again.
This is simple and straight forward, and a perfect simple home page portal. Thank you for taking the time to put it together!
Much thanks! You just saved me $40 from a portal addon. I will be sharing this with anyone else I tell about XF.
Really helpful and easy to understand! I also really like that you added the URLs, like admin.php?options/groups/basicBoard/, to the tutorial with this it's really easy to find the options.
Thanks for creating this tutorial. Very simple and works great. I especially appreciate the code examples and the link to the DL6 addon. I now have a great home page for my XF2 site!
Nice and simple! The new widget system could solve a lot of issues for us, and this page tutorial show show easy they are to use elsewhere in templates.
