Firstly i will be online all day and monitoring this thread all day !! I would dearly love to get on top of this today so not to lose any more time on this... I am not sure of the extent or time required to complete this simple modification but i am open to paying a small fee in return for some help / coaching to build this.
I am struggling to wrap my head around this.. and also the method / script i was using previously is no longer working since 1.2.B1 so i am here on my knees begging for assistance.
Basically what i would like to do is this. XF to be installed in the root dir is a preference.
mysite.com/ <--- Custom Home Page within the XF wrapper
mysite.com/forums/ <--- Forums are here
Now i was using a script called "Kotomi" to allow me to create a custom front page / custom pages within the xf wrapper but since 1.2 beta1 this has stopped working when the index file of the kotomi script was placed outside of the xf installation directory.
XenPorta and other addons manage to re-route the forums to /forums/ to allow for the home tab / main page of XF to display custom content.. What i am not understanding is how this is achieved or where to start to begin to develop my own tiny / light weight addon that will allow me to add simply custom html/css to a home page within the xf wrapper.
Ive learnt a lot about xf in general the past week, but i am still a long way being where id like to be in terms of being able to create a addon.. I am very open to learning and have great html / css knowledge and am ok with php but certainly no coder by any means so i am beggnig for assistance with this.. I will also release this for free once complete to help others out.
