I'm not sure what other modifications you've done, but all of the things discussed here, the homepage and widgets, etc., will still display fine on whatever style you're using.
I made custom tab widgets and what about the color changes, different position backgrounds etc?

One last question you might have an answer for.

Would it be possible in latest threads that when something is post in there it bumps to the top again?

The tabbed widgets should work just the same no matter what style. But if you've made some customization to colors, etc., then obviously you might need to create additional widgets and tweak them to match other styes.


As for the bumping threads thing, sounds like you're basically describing new posts. I mean, isn't that what happens when someone makes a new post, it bumps the threads up and shows those threads at the top of new posts...? But maybe I'm not understanding exactly what you're wanting. In any case, I couldn't tell you how to change the default behavior. There is at least one addon that allows people to bump threads without posting, but that doesn't sound like what you're looking for either.

Thank you for your time.

Actually, on second thought, no, any widget you create with default settings should match any style you're using, so you shouldn't have to do anything with the colors. But I'm not sure what else you might be referring to with the "etc." I'd suggest just installing one of the other free styles and check it out firsthand.

So I made a new page node and no matter what I try I can't reach that page, could it be because I have the home set as portal page?

Did you create a navigation link for it?
Doesn't sound like I did, don't need it anywhere in the nav bar though if that's what it is for.

I'm not talking about the portal link though, the portal runs great.

I created a new page for advertising purposes but I can't reach That URL and trying to find out why.

Should be at ... something.com/pages/page name/

Just set parent node to none.
Should be but it's not, been trying to find out where to find it all night but nothing.

Now my forum is in subfolder so mydomain.com/forum and this will lead to the home portal page.

So I got 2 changed routes, forums to kw1 and threads to kw2.

Now I tried all these URL's and none reaches the url of the advertisement page
Code:
mydomain.com/forum/advertisement
mydomain.com/forum/kw1/advertisement
mydomain.com/forum/kw2/advertisement
mydomain.com/forum/pages/advertisment
was typing a lot more till I looked at yours again

Un-ffing believable, I did not have the last / behind it..

That shouldn't be affected by this at all :)
Still happy with your portal stuff only thing I can give critique on is the snippet.

When I post the url that links to the home portal page it will only show the word Home and the url in the snippet, only if I link it to the forum it will show the board title and board meta description.

Any way to fix this?
