Hello!

So I've been designing a forum for a friend, and so far this is the only large issue I haven't been able to puzzle out.

Is there anyway to customize post titles in the News widget on the portal? Moreover, I want the post titles to be links to the original post, and right now they're only displayed as text.

The news feed features posts from every user on the forum, so an alternative where I create a custom widget and manually add every entry won't work.

Thanks in advance!

What I did was I created a forum topic that I called Portal News, and made it accessible only by the admin, I then set the news feed to that forum topic

Thank you for the response, Waldo, but I tried it out and it doesn't accomplish what I'm trying to do :/

I want the portal to act very blog-like. It's set up to post the most recent topics in the general forum, created by every user. Locking it to admin-only and with a single topic yields the opposite effect.

I'm happy with the way it's set up; I just want to change the posts' titles to where they link to the original topic instead of being plain old text.

Well, I discovered a solution that, while it's not exactly what I was trying to do, will work for now at least. Instead of giving a hyperlink to the title, it simply blows up the "Comments" at the bottom and makes it more noticeable.

Code:
div.inner > p.row3 > a[href^="/"] { font-size: 0 !important; }
div.inner > p.row3 > a[href^="/"]:after {content:"View Full Topic and Replies"; font-size: 18px !important; line-height: 135%; }

If anyone know how to change the topic title, I'd be open for suggestions, but this will work for me for now.
