Good Morning / Afternoon / Evening Hello

This can be done with 2 steps.


Step 1
ACP  Display Tab   Homepage  Generalities
Find >> Homepage message....
Message title : What ever you like we have used "Welcome to the Support Forum"

Now you need to make a table in the Message content :
 to do this click on the page tool in the tools like this  if it looks like this then your ready to go  


Now we need to add the tables Wink

Find this button in your tools  This is your Tables Button.
Think of the number of lines you want to make
On This site we have a table of 2 so you would do the following
Click the table tool and you will get a popup come to the page like this


in the border part you need to put 0
Rows you need to enter 1
Cols 3 Note I have added 3 Blocks this is to leave a gap in the center to make a space.
when that is done click Insert you should now have this in the box   
where the Yellow part is in my screen shot is the place you will enter your text / links.




step 2
Now we need to add the text that will become your links
Go to the top of your page and click on the
PREVIEW FORUM this should open a new tab or new page.

We will use this to get your links to the page you want to link in the boxes.
Now go to the page you want to link say your rules !!
Click the rules page and copy the URL at the top of your browser
Now copy the URL and then go back to your ACP that should be open still.

Click in the yellow part of the box i have screen shot and then click this button in your tools   
Now add the URL in the Box that says URL then in the Box under that you need to give that link a name so as we are adding the rules you would add something like Forum Rules then click insert
Do the same again for the next row and it should look like this
To make more links just press Enter Return after your text to start a new line and then save   when your done.



I hope that is clear for you if you still need any more help please let me know

Please change the title of your topic to something that is related to your question/issue, so that other users will be able to find their question/issue using the search engine.
It is called the homepage message.


When your topic has been solved, ensure you mark the topic solved.

@APE

Thank you Ape-san! That was a very nice walk-through, I hope to run into you more for help.

SL, I've fixed the title the best I can. If you can find something more accurate to call it, feel free to edit my title.
