Best Portal Page options for XenForo ? FREE / PAID

#1
Hi all,

I have my XenForo installed in subfolder /community.

Now, in the root folder, I am planning to put a Portal Page as home page.

Can you please suggest best FREE / PAID Portal Page options for XenForo ?

My requirement is fairly simple :
Latest, Featured and Popular Thread display from my Forum.
Few blocks like : Feedburner Email Subscription, Facebook Page Likes, Tag Cloud Display etc
Few Adsense Blocks.
Portal Page should be fast & responsive.

Also, on side note: Is XenForo 2.0 is coming up with Portal Home Page option ?

1) If I have my XenForo forum installed in sub-forum (lets say, www.domain.com/community/ ), then its possible to install that CTA Portal in Root folder ( www.domain.com/ ). Right ?
No, that's no possible.
XF add-ons can only run inside the folder where XF is installed.

2) If I have my XenForo forum installed in root folder, both XenForo and CTA Portal can co-exist in Root folder ?
It is recommended to install XF in the root when using a portal/home page add-on.

That puts the home page at domain.com - http://support.cliptheapex.com/

And the forums at domain.com/forums - http://support.cliptheapex.com/forums/

Currently I have vBulletin in sub-folder /forum. And in root folder I have a simple index.html file that just fetches latest posts from vBulletin forum and displays.

Now, I want to have forum migrated to XenForo and also a Portal page as index page.

I don't mind installing XenForo in root folder if it is mandatory for the ADD-ON (CTA Portal) to be in same folder as XenForo.

My Question is: If vBulletin is in sub-folder and XenForo in root folder, the REDIRECT RULES (after migration) will not cause me any problem. Right ?

I know ideally they should not. But checking with you just in case.
