Using a Blog as a Homepage?

Post by eddbundy01 on September 24th 2010, 10:55 am

I was wondering if you could use like a 'Blogger.com' blog as the homepage of your forum?
And also have links on the blog to your forum etc..
I really want to know as i have a music based forum, and a proper Blog would be a great addition for my forums members to see what new music we have.

Anyway please get back to me.

Thanks.

You can't do it. You can use portal/HTML page or index of your forum for your homepage only.

you can do it.

Heres how


Create a HTML page and make it your homepage

Paste this code into it

Code:
<meta HTTP-EQUIV="REFRESH" content="0; url=http://www.yourdomain.com/index.html">

Changing the yourdomain bit to your blog

Then it will redirect from the home to the blog.

On the blog you will have to post a link to the forum:
ie.
www.FORUMNAME.forumotion.com/forum

Lol, well, that's a redirect meta..

You could perhaps make an frame, but i don't really know how i should do that. Try copying your blog page source and paste it into your HTML-Page. It often works.

Oof.
Code:
<a href="Link to your forum homepage"><img src="Link to an not needed image"></a><br></br>
<iframe src="BLOG URL" frameborder="0" width="100%" height="100%"></iframe>
<a href="http://www.forumotion.com"></a>

Put that in a HTML page in your forum which you set as forum's homepage

PS: Gangstar, you got before me, i was going to write that!
And, isn't it src, not scr?
