Replacing the top forum page

We have many forums and they all have numerous sub forums. This makes the front page very long and busy. We'd like to keep this structure but only displaying the forums, not the subs.

This can be done with a separate html page, but we also like the promotional features of the vB top page such as latest posts, trending, etc. We can program the html for a separate page to show what we want with links to the forum pages, but are not sure how to get the promotional items to automatically update.

Any guidance would be appreciated.

You can hide the subforums via CSS. Add the below CSS in css_additional template in AdminCP or in Style > CSS Editor in Sitebuilder.

Thanks so much, will definitely give that a try. When navigating to the each forum, will the sub forums show up there?

Yes, you're only hiding them from the front page list using css.

Hmmm, I pasted the code into the style CSS editor in Sitebuilder and while it took it, all the subforums were still visible. The forums were recently changed to categories, so all the subforums under them ... might not be considered subforums anymore??

I tried to get back in to undo the pasted code and got an error "error_information _x"

Luckily I had a CSS editor window still open in another tab. phew!

What the best way to do this using an html page and redirect the domain link to it. Would like recent posts, trending, etc. to auto update.
