XF 2.0 Customise a Recent Posts Page


Well-known member
I'd like a home page to show recent posts, but in three sections

The first section would show 10 recent posts from 1 particular forum​
The middle section would show recent 15 posts from a selected number of forums​
The last section to show 10 posts from just 1 forum.​

Years ago I had this home page setup using vB and vB advanced, and I managed to do it with xF1 and the BD Widget Framework. Will xF2's widgets enable me to do this?

It would be possible, though it would like require some custom HTML to define/call the widgets. You could create a page node and set that as your index page route. You'd then need to put the HTML to call the widgets. You can do this by a widget key (the ID you define in the control panel) or through a completely custom call, similar to this: https://xenforo.com/community/threads/widget-options-in-template.137983/
