Solved Adding Content to the Index Page

Post by DontxTrip on July 18th 2012, 3:09 am

i was wondering if it is at all possible to add content to the index page of my forum. I would like to add a flash gear draw wall to the index page right under the chatbox. If It is possible.

You can place the code in a widget or your homepage message.
