How do I go about creating a sideblock on the forum home page? I just want to add a simple block with some graphical links to areas of the site.

As I see it they are directly calling templates within the template. Let me give example in forum_list which is the forum index has:

<xen:include template="sidebar_online_users" />

so you can do a similar thing directly to the template you want to show there

<xen:include template="sidebar_YOURS" />

which does work I have tested it but no template type hooks like vB if that is what your looking for.

So basically create a template with your data then add the line of code in the template forum_list for what you want. Presume your just looking for a quick thing and not a mod type deal to add it.

For the moment yes, I do hope they add something in admin though which allows the addition of custom blocks. Preferably using a wysiwyg editor, and allowing the use of html.

Thanks for pointing out what I should be editing btw :)
