I think it's a private portal only for vb.org !

It's custom, you can't. You're welcome.

:)

You could probably achieve something similar with the Webtemplates hack..

Use the vbadvanced cmps, its the best global solution.

Can I set up a portal so the portal and the forum are in the same directory (main dir of the site) instead using a /forum/ dir?

So the forums keep being index whatever and the portal is portal.php.

Like, people would go to my site, see /portal.php and then click forums and be in index.php?yaddayaddayadda.

you would need to use some kind of http.access config. Its server side

If you want everybody to go to the portal first you might as well rename the portal to be index.php and the VB files to "forum.php" and just change the name of it in the ACP.

So I can change the forum index to forum.php and it can still work with a setting change?

Edit: I don't really want to do that, I want the forums to be index, cause the NAME of my site ends in board so having people go to somethingboard.com/forum.php?etc kind of seems redundant.

Then name it somethingboard.com/letmein.php won't be redundant anymore.

I can use some kind of http.access config to make people go to mysite.com/portal.php and then the forums are index, right?

Then that's what I'll do :D

And can I approximate what the main site portal is here with vBa? I like it more than vbportal but the editing bit leaves me leery. It'll be a simple portal, just news and a few boxes.

PS: Thanks for all the help guys, you rawk hard.

PS: Thanks for all the help guys, you rawk hard.The center column would be equal of vBa CMPS's "News" module that comes stock. After that it's just be a matter of picking & choosing which of the default modules you'd want to use or create your own.

And don't worry about the edits.... they are really simple, just some minor edits to 4 or 5 of the files. For example, one of the file edits is nothing more than inserting a line so that all of your CMPS templates are grouped together; the rest of the edits are just cut & paste.

The only thing I'd advise, though, is to grab the newest version (1.0.1) from vBadvanced.com because it has a new bells & whistles in it to make life easier.


PS: It's free.... ya' got nothing to lose. ;)

You can change the forum page from index.php to whatever and adjust it in your Admin CP Options anyway. ;)
