You can add it to the homepage message , the pop-up log in, or an announcement.

That is because you have your forum set for Registered Member only to view the forum index. To change that so visitors can see your forum go to your Admin Panel and click "General" then "Catogories and forums" then look to the right and you'll see "Forum Permission Control", click that. Then choose one of your forums by clicking the title of it on the left, Then select from the drop menu that is "View the forum and its messages" and select "All" and save your settings.

You have to have at least one forum open for guests to read in order for your Homepage Message to be seen by guests.

OK then you want to control a page for guests that really is separate from the forum from where people write. A different page altogether. Ok, what you want is called a "Portal" page. Those are mostly for guests just like what you are wanting. Go to admin panel and choose "Modules" then on the left choose "Portal Management" then you will see a screen on the right about portals. Click to install the portal. That will then be your new page for guests or even members to view. Do that and play around with it some. If you have more questions ask about portals and I'm sure someone will reply to help you out. I don't have a portal page on my forum so I'm not the best one to answer questions about that. But a portal is what you are looking for. Smile
