    In the settings:
    [​IMG]
    Where this shot selected My First Page.
    Is My First Page, just any page, created in /Pages/ ?
    ie. like this example page - http://xenforo.com/community/pages/example-page/ ?

    Maybe people can post the .html code and a picture of their "New HomePage" to help others ?

    What do you mean exactly? You can select any pages in the system :D

    My understanding is that any page created via the node structure, would then be selectable from that dropdown to use as the homepage for your site.

    Im a little confused, with this mod? With this mod you can then create a page to replace the Home Tab instead of it redirecting to the forums?

    Not the Home tab but the Forums tab

    You can remove the home tab altogether, so you have a homepage with forum behind it, if your not requiring a homepage / cms area to your site.

    Ok so I am confused! Im not criticizing your work just curious as the why when you already have the forum occupying the Forums Tab? :)

    At first, this addon is a studying approach. And secondly, I see some people doesn't like the forum list to act as their "index". This thing has potential but to make it actually useful, it needs an awesome idea :D

    OK so the home tab is for the future CMS?

    It could be... it can be for anything you want to use it for, or not... Some may use Joomla or WordPress as their home CMS / Blog, with the forum attached, until XF develop a CMS product. I would guess from the popularity of requests about the requirement of a cms, blog, gallery, etc etc nowadays, they will be building these products and selling them as additional products, similar to what IPB do.
