    I have Xenporta, and Nodes as tabs installed but i cant find out how to put the admin defined forum posts from announcements on the middle of the home page, i know there is a block for that but its only a sidebar feed, and honestly the style i'm using makes it look very tacky so if anyone can help me out here and maybe give me a step by step tutorial on how to do something like this i would greatly appreciate it. Thanks in advance!

    The RecentNews block in XenPorta can be used to show recent posts from a specific forum. You can configure the block here:

    And you can place it by editing the layout:

    i know about this already but it looks very tacky when you set it as a sidebar, and i cant change that.. unless there is a way to put that in the absolute center of the Portal, and possibly make it a fixed width?

    Edit the layout to put it in the center.
