    Works fine on one site but doesn't work on a site using CTA Featured Threads add-on fyi.

    Is the button not appearing or is it another error?

    The button isn't appearing on either the portal home page or the regular forum homepage.

    Can you check if all template modifications are being applied?

    I doubt there will be a button on the featured threads page template anyway so it's just going to be the template mod for the forum_list.

    They are. This is what it is looking for:

    I also have a template mod for the forum_list template for when the page is set as the home/portal page.

    If you disable that, does the button appear?

    Yep

    Right, not sure there's much I can do about that as there are quite a few changes required to the forum_list template when the featured threads page is set as the home page.

    You could edit the cta_featuredthreads_forum_list_title_meta template and add the code directly - that should then work.

    But clicking the button gives me this error:

    After installation no options to setup right?

    And normally, when your already inside a forum section pressing New thread doesn't need to select a forum destination to create thread.
    But with this addon installed, I must select a forum destination every time.

    Is there something you need to do to get the button to show @Waindigo?

    Is there a way to make it display on xenportal index?

    As long as you can post a thread in a forum somewhere it should work.

    Try adding:
    HTML:
    <xen:topctrl><a href="{xen:link 'forums/-/create-thread'}" class="callToAction OverlayTrigger"><span>{xen:phrase post_new_thread}</span></a></xen:topctrl>
    to the xenportal index template. It won't check permissions though as that would require extra coding.

    Do you have any other buttons in that spot? Seems to be clashing with a few different add-ons.

    Seems to be clashing with another add-on. Can you try and disable other add-ons and work out which one it is clashing with? What version of XenForo are you running?

    My forum works fine with posting and the button works normal for new thread-but your button doesn't show for some reason.
