Here is the modification I have in mind: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=230470&highlight=newscast Here is a screen shot of its use at my forum: That sits above the forum listing on the index page (forumhome). I have renamed the title on the header to "Sample Topics." Also, I have chosen to display two topics, 400 characters each. Here is a screen shot of the settings in the AdminCP: I would like something like this for xenForo, if anyone is interested. I think it better than merely displaying the titles of latest topics because you actually get to see some of the content of selected topics. I especially like this for first-time visitors to see. On an unrelated note, this is my first time using the attachment feature as it is implemented in xenForo, and I love it.
