I quite like this idea because i'm on some forums where the first thing to come up is the portal

That portal configuration option could also be in the user preferences.

But a portal is a kind of... "intriduction" so if you see the forum first, the portal is useless, you don't need it Confused

I vote no. I think if you go straight to the forum, a portal is pointless.

Just found a way to dont show portal first.

1. You have to get the link to your portal.

2. Goto Portal configuration and right at the top you will see this.
Show the portal

Switch home page between portal and list of forums. Activate it to show index and portal icons in the address toolbar.

with 2 optons yes [ ] no [x]

so make sure u tick no then your portal will go. dont worry

3. Next you want to go Headers. can you see add a link, you want to place your portal link in the 2nd box find a picture, Put in portal in the 3th box and tick the box under that and press save.

damm it was under my nose all the time....lmao

If your members get to the portal, it's because their bookmarked link is this : http://forumname.domain.com or http://forumname.domain.com/portal.htm

To get directly to the index, your members must have this link in their bookmark : http://forumname.domain.com/index.htm The link with the /index.htm will lead directly to the index.
