How do I add a "Homepage" on my forum site

#1
Hi,

My sincere apologies if I sounded dumb as it's simply because I am totally brand new on setting up a forum.

My plan is to set up a forum site that is somewhat similar to Xenforo's website format i.e. I would like to have a "Home tab" that provides some brief details of my forum and and follow by another "Forum tab" that would bring the user to my forum.

I am about to sign up my hosting and usually, these hosting companies will provide Content Management Systems such as Wordpress, Joomla etc for me to use. I have used Wordpress before but I have never done a forum on Wordpress powered site before, not to mentioned to integrate Xenforo into the Wordpress powered site.

At such, would be grateful if any kind souls could provide me a pointer or 2 on what do I need to do to have that "Home Tab" on my forum site.

Thank you very much in advance.

You can integrate a fully custom page into XenForo, yes.

Example: https://www.apantic.com - raw HTML/PHP implemented within XenForo

It requires basic custom development and I may release ours for you (free) if this is what you're looking for. It's pretty basic.
I would be interested in this. I am also new to the forums and have been looking for something like you have here.

If you still have this, I'd love to have access.

Exactly what I'm looking for in my project.
Here you go: https://github.com/Apantic/custom-html-page/archive/master.zip

Read the README.md for installation/setup instructions and limitations (you can only have 1 HTML page. This is because we used this for a HTML homepage within XenForo, so that was our use case).

Something I forgot for this version. Please redownload (same link) and install normally.

All information you need should be there.
