Jaxel submitted a new resource:

[XF2] [8WR] XenPorta 2 (Portal) PRO - Portal and featured threads. Add-on from 8WAYRUN.

BRANDING REMOVAL can be purchased HERE:

This is a complete rewrite of my popular portal system for XenForo. XenPorta is an article system and front-end that allows you to give a more professional look to the front-facing sections of your forum. It's built completely within XenForo's existing structure and does not add any new content types to manage. My effort with this new version was to slim it down, make it easier to use, and get rid of the bloat.

Is there a setting somewhere needed to get stuff to show up on the portal page?

I assumed this would be enough

but nothing is yet showing up. I posted a couple of new threads but nothing.

Is it necessary to set at least one category or anything else?

Just an update, manually promoting is working great. Automatic promotion doesn't seem to be working for me. (Not sure if there's a cron or a cache or something though?)

For the featured slider I unticked these options

Again, don't know if this is a bug or a cache thing.

Suggestion: When featuring an item, have a predefined selection of images to choose from. I can imagine us having say 10 generic images to use and having to upload them every time would be a pain rather than being able to just select from the server.

Thats not what this option does. This option automatically checks a BOX in the options section when CREATING a thread.

I thought that might be the case but it wasn't doing that either at first. Now I have a few manually promoted it seems to be automatically checking it ok.

Is there anyway to point a whole forum to be promoted automatically? Basically the old RecentNews block?

I'm assuming you can set your XF index route path in the same way you could for XF1.

Not sure if this is a bug or intentional but it looks a bit weird. The Author/Date/Views info is only the width of the content so moves around depending on the content of the excerpt. I'd have expected them to be 100% with inside the container.
