Hey, first of all, I'd like to apologize in advance if this is the wrong section however, I am new to xenforo and am in need of configuration forum, which already has XenPorta installed and working, I would greatly appreciate it if someone could walk me through briefly on how to: change the portal layout, fix some Blocks and change some of the colors etc.

Thanks :)

EDIT: This is a PAID job

To change the portal layout, within the admin, on the home tab, sidebar under XenPorta choose "Portal" that will allow you to change where the different blocks are displayed. If you want full customization check the "EWRporta_Portal" template under Appearance > Styles > Your Style Name > then filter for "EWRporta_Portal"
By fix some blocks, what do you mean exactly? For new functionality you can create a new block when your forum is in debug mode.
Changing colors is easy. I would recommend creating a new style and making your changes there. Leaving the default style for A/B tests. Go to your admin, Appearance > Styles > Create New Style > No Parent, Title, Allow User selection > Style Properties. More explanation on color changes can be found on Brogans post.

Im looking to change the actual layout of the portal so It looks more like this:

There is an upload option, is there a specific thread with all the layouts for xenporta?

The problem I'm having with the blocks, in particular, RecentNews. I have placed it in the layout and made couple test threads but they do not display on the portal as seen in the screenshot below. I believe I need to point the block to a specific section in the forum but I don't know how.

Also, I would like to know how I can change the "Flexile" to the name of my Forum

Ok, at home...

Now what is it you are exactly needing? If it is the colors of the blocks, I will go ahead and tell you I cannot help much with that. As far as the blocks, I can help you with those.

I think we are on different timezones, do you have a Skype so I contact you and explain and show more in depth what I'm looking for. It is nothing complicated it is just code that I am unfortunately unfamiliar with.

Not sure on that. I'll see if I can figure it out later today.

As far as I know there isn't such a thread as most people seem to just use the default.

Depending on what you set the caching to be it may not display immediately.
