First of all.. i dont know the different between forum and discussion.. i do know threads vs. posts.
Im talking about the main discussion like screenshot below: Is it "forum" or "discussion"? Lets just call it a"Discussion"
1. Can i create thousands "Discussion"? But i don't want to show all of them on the mainpage.. that would be long scrolling-down. Only top 20 selected/popular celebrities shows up on the mainpage.
How to manage this since there's no pagination on the mainpage?
2. Can each "Discussion" have different header image?? lets say.. Shakira discussion has the header-image of shakira.. Britney Spears Discussion has the header-image of britney.. and so on.
3. Anyone can read posts/threads, but before posting into discussion.. a member must be a fan of that particular celeb/discussion..
Are these features already available in the core? Or should i hire xenforo developer? thx
