Solved Portal widget to general forum help

Post by niji666 on January 16th 2013, 6:42 pm

Hey guys i have created a portal and would like a button or widget that takes you straight into a certain forum. Do any of you know how i can achieve this?
I know this would be achievable through the widget source/HTML code but i have no idea how to do that

Thanks!

Check the widget on the right of this forum-Official Support Forums.

Will such a thing do?

Any type of widget or button will do as long as it takes me into a forum and not just to the forum category's. I also would like to name the button if possible

Thank you

The code slg posted shall work. It will show a link.

Do you want a picture instead of the text for the link?

Thanks SLG. I am a little confused by the brackets and where to put the url ?

I want a button type that could say for example 'ENTER HERE' or an image containing 'ENTER HERE' That takes you to a specific forum.

I can create a button image i want to use just don't know how to make it work and take you to the forum
