'Important topics' widget for portal

Post by Luke Frost on September 17th 2012, 5:21 pm

Hey guys,

I run a site that involves teaching new users how to play a management game.

We have written guides, and made calculators. Having these accessible upon login would be fantastic but I'm not sure how to do it.

I was thinking of putting a blog, or news section there. But that would take up a lot of otherwise needed space.

Any advice appreciated.

How about adding the links of these important topics in a forum widget?

Hey Sanket,

I added the widget so it's displayed on the side of the board (like how you have 'SHORTCUTS' on the right), which helps a lot. That's showing the 'blog' in a small column.

Thank you for the help Smile

Shortcuts would also be fantastic, as it's simplified and easy to navigate. Is there any widget that can add it in a similar fashion to what you've got?

Also,

Is it possible to implement some javascript into the code so that, upon logging in or clicking on 'home' the forum jumps straight to a category?

Ex: http://help.forumotion.com/t114811-important-topics-widget-for-portal#751366
(#751366)

Thanks for all help!

Basically: I want to have a similar widget to this:

SHORTCUTS
Support
Connection problems
Script (code) problems
Administration problems
Domain names problems
Forum Design & Appearance Help
Other problems
------------------------------
Other Services
Hitskin.com Support
Special Themes
Graphic Design Section
Forum Reviews
------------------------------
Miscellaneous
Suggestions
Forum Promotion
Forum Discussions

With personal shortcuts of course.
