Unmaintained Poor Man's Portal 1.1.8

No permission to download
The Poor Man's Portal

A simple, quick, easy to use, portal for your XenForo forum website.

This is the perfect solution for those who don't want too or can't install a full-blown CMS system like joomla, WordPress, or Drupal.

Installation / configuration of the Poor Man's portal can take just 5 minutes or less, by following the step by step, detailed instructions.


The portal uses html template files in order to easily and seamlessly integrate the .php widgets exposing different elements of your forum.
Just use the <widget> tag to call the corresponding widget from anywhere on your portal page.

The standard portal package includes 3 widgets
1) Latest Forum Posts
2) Forum Stats
3) Members online now

which can be configured / customized in a variety of different ways.

Because the portal uses html templates you can take your existing webpage's html files and copy them into the template with no issues.
Also you can use other 3rd party widgets, i.e. facebook, twitter, etc.. and integrate them into the portal.

The portal supports IE 6+, FF 2+, Chrome, Safari, Opera

Thanks

This is a neat framework which allows the use of many XF listings OUTSIDE of XF. Examples include using them in regular html, php or other cms pages. Great Job!
