and in ACP>>Display>>Homepage>>Generalities...you select the option

Yeah that's true if you want to do that follow this steps:

Ap>Modules>Html pages management>Create new Html page.

Do you wish to use your forum header and footer?
That's your one choice press "No" to make your own page with html, and
Press "Yes" for your forum header and footer you got.

Use this page as homepage?
Press "yes"



and in ACP>>Display>>Homepage>>Generalities...you select the option

your forum redirects to:-- a HTML page and save

You have to give the script a tittle when you see an asterisk '*' it means you have to write something, did the script you wrote save with the tittle you gave it? an example of HTML script https://developer.mozilla.org/en/svg_in_html_introduction
it should look something like that. You use an HTML editor with error checking to write HTML

Yes, you would have to get advice in the scripting/coding forum..Put a post in there it would seem that you're only embedding an animated gif with that code
and your page has no header or on-click to return to the forum index once read

explain there what you're trying to achieve and what you need to do to correct the HTML Smile
