I have had some feedback that forums are "confusing" for newies. So I am considering using an XF Page to create a "front page." Here I would explain what we're about, and have simple coloured boxes in a table which take you to key places, with the whole thing prettified up. Each box would explain what its contents are about. Somerthing like this; Note across top on returning to this page HOME Col 1 MY FIRST STEPS Change Avatar / Change Profile / Make hello post. DOING POSTS Bold Italic. Links. Images. Quoting. Signature. MY MESSAGES Write a private message/ Check my Inbox/ Alerts ALL MEMBERS DIRECTORY Members list, Members search and what it tells you. HOW THINGS WORK Navbar. + various Help pages listed. OUR TWO IMPORTANT RULES Col 2 CONTENTS the full forumlist. What's New? Notifications and Alerts. CATEGORY 1 CATEGORY 2 etc But how would I make the basic forum URL point to this page? So when you use www.mysite.com/forums this is what you get? Then what would I now use for the forumlist URL instead of www.mysite.com/forums ?
