Portal

Post by Bazinga! on May 13th 2013, 3:23 pm

My question is, what kind of things do you have in the portal on your forum?

I've got 'Top Posting Users This Month', 'Latest Topics', 'Statistics', and 'Who is online?', plus, I've made an affiliate banner for other forums to affiliate with mine. Besides the affiliation banner, I think they help show the activity of the forum and what all is going on.

What do you have in your portal? And for what purpose?

I personally don't like using portals because they aren't very decorative, they usually have large empty spaces.

I have used them once, I had a few affiliates buttons, and several widgets. I also managed to display text and site updates as well as information about video games (what my forum was about back then) and it did look nice. However more often than not they just have empty spaces and don't really do much for a forum.

It can help show activity, this is true but I personally don't like them.
