This is a complete rewrite of my popular portal system for XenForo. XenPorta is an article system and front-end that allows you to give a more professional look to the front-facing sections of your forum. It's built completely within XenForo's existing structure and does not add any new content types to manage. My effort with this new version was to slim it down, make it easier to use, and get rid of the bloat.

Demo:


Basic Features:
  • Promote threads on your forums into an articles index
  • Promote threads on your forums into a feature slider
  • Define specific users as "authors" with their own byline
  • Change the look of articles to look more news content
  • Uses XenForo 2's built-in widget management system
Installation:
Upgrading from XF1:
  • After installing this addon, head to your admin control panel
  • Run the appropriate import procedure in Tools > Import Data

Give us the option to actually auto-promote what we want and leave us worry about the server's stretching. I have a dedicated server and I don't want to promote the articles manually. Thank you.
This is an excellent resource - easy to use, easy to implement, for those of us who wanted to have a feature homepage. I was concerned that the version for XF 1.5 might be complicated, but the XF 2.0 version is simply point and click - it's that easy.
I've used Jaxel's addons for many years now, and I have to say that this implementation is truly some of the best work yet. The use of default XF2 is paramount in add-on structure, and this really nails that in the ease of widget use and structuring article content.
Definitely worth the $40. It is simple, yet robust and well organized. Install was easy, and for the most part I figured out how to use it without even reading the instructions. I am not all that technically blessed, either. Very happy with it so far.
This was the best 40 USD spent on a add-on. Simple clean and it generates a lot more traffic to my forum. Whow this makes my homepage so much professional. Thank you !
Addon:
Fantastic, was the best portal addon for XF1, and still is superb! Easy to use, and does what you need it to do. It now uses the built in widget system in XF2, which makes it much easier to use other widgets with Xenporta. Excellent product for the reasonable price tag. If you need a portal solution for XF2, you can't go wrong with Xenporta.
Rating: 5/5.

Support:
Fixes necessary bugs, but support isn't exactly great. Often snarky comments and one liners (which are not helpful) when customers have reasonable questions about the product. As for adding new features, don't hold your breath.
Rating: 3/5.

Overall: Even so, the pros outweigh the cons, especially if you have some XF skills of your own, which limits the need for support (outside of obvious bugs).
Overall rating: 4/5.
Where can i find instruction for that plugin? I can not understand how to open portal page. just blank page openned.
hello i was searching this addon and finally i got really great work now i just need to check on my website how this look :)
This add-on is the best on the market for a portal solution in my opinion.
I have used XENPORTA since its release in XF 1.x series and it has met all of my needs. I purchased the current version soon after it was released and I am very satisfied. I give it the max rating based on its meeting its stated functions at a reasonable price.

That said, it is not "perfect." It does take some work and reading of the threads and discussions to implement its features. Perhaps, a user guide or some documentation would be helpful for others.
Great Portal. Totaly worth the Price! It has a lot of settings and is easy to customize once you know how ;)
