    It would be appreciated if someone could please give me some advice/insight on how https://www.digitalpoint.com/ created their home page using xf.

    It is nothing you will find here. All of his work is custom coded by him. There are a few portals in the resource area that can recreate that kind of front page though.

    I asked the same question but it's custom made and not for sale.

    definitely an outstanding xf hack that we should all be able to use.(y) in my opinion it is the icing on the cake and I would gladly pay someone to make it happen.:)

    Such a news page is easily done with the Featured Threads Addon. Take a look at mine (in the signature)

    Or Extra Portal.

    @digitalpoint 's homepage shows snippets that link to external sites. AFAIK this can not be done with featured threads or extra portal.

    But with widget embedded in the Portal.

    The system supports threads too, I iust never use it.

    As I've mentioned before, it really was never setup to be used outside our site. And it does a few unique things that the behavior was hard coded so it would be a lot of work (basically a rewrite) to make it something viable for other sites. And I just don't have the time for that.
