If I wanted to have a homepage that looks similar to this template, for example, is it possible to do it in XF? I don't see the benefit of adding another content manager if you are only going to add a few stories to a homepage. Instead, it would be interesting if you could pull content from a post number. Possibly even in a subforum that is hidden in the forum pages if you wanted.
I'm trying to create a wp / cms stlye homepage in php. (see above: "Do you know anyone building a template like this or is there a better place to make a request?")
Seems possible to create it in XF pages, no? The link that Arny shared kind of shows me it's possible. I wanted to know if anyone is creating, or is interested in creating, a template like this so you wouldn't need to install WP just to do this.
You've already been pointed to what you're asking for. But you "just want it a bit different than that," which sounds to me like you want someone to write some code to your specifications. Traditionally you would pay a php developer to do that. You know, in the old days.
It might come down to having it specifically coded for me, but I was hoping for a template that does what I need. I think that would benefit the whole community and make someone some serious brownie pts. How much would I pay? I dunno... The site I need this for I don't make anything. I put it up for the benefit of others.
