I know there are some portal-like add ons out there. But none of them seem to meet my fancy. About 10 years ago when I had my exotic pets forum on vB... we had a really portal page. It super easy to use and fill it up with existing content from the forum. Could also add custom blocks easily that were text, html, graphics, etc. We also sold advertising back then (which is something I would like to get back in to -- running banners) and could have the banners rotate on the portal page. What I liked about these is that they looked really professional with little work to be done, but also had the ability easily to customize it how I liked. We had *I believe* http://www.vbadvanced.com and I think it was the CMS portal. Now of course the "look" of it looks "dated"... but I think with all the talented developers here, someone could come up with a really nice and CLEAN portal, but that is robust, yet user friendly without any coding expertise or modifications to styles/phrases/templates, or anything on the users end. If would even be willing to possibly PAY someone if they could come up with a REALLY nice one. You guys are SO above and beyond vB... you guys can do a NICE portal that blows your mind, I just know it! Now, I haven't looked in to any of the banner/advertisement add ons much. So can't comment too much on those, but in the future will need something that I can set how many rotations shown and base pricing of ads off of that... and something that could be included into a portal.
