Hello,

You could always create an HMTL page and set it as your homepage. (admin panel > modules > portal management > create new page)

Name it "Rules" and set;
Width column 1 (left): 0%
Width column 2 (middle): 100%
Width column 3 (right): 0%

Remove the all the widgets from all the columns, then click on "Create Custom Block". Add your YouTube video and welcome message in there.

If you want to add some widgets to the side, change the column width percentages, but make sure if you add more to one column, you subtract the same amount of the the other one. They always need to total 100%.

Sorry for the confusion. Your middle column is set to 100% and your left and right columns are set to 0%. If you decide you want to utilize the side columns, you need to increase the percentage from 0 to maybe 20%. This means, you need to reduce your middle column by 20% to 80%.

This is to ensure there is always a total of 100%.

There's no shame in learning how to do something new.

>> Admin Panel
>> Modules
>> Portal Management
>> Create new page
>> Page Name > Welcome
>> Width column 1 (left) : 0%
>> Width column 2 (middle) : 100%
>> Width column 3 (right) : 0%
>> Remove all Widgets from the Box
>> Create a Custom Block
>> Widget Name > Welcome
>> Use a Table Type > No
>> Widget Title > [leave blank]
>> Add YouTube video using the code:
Code:
[center][youtube]URL OF YOUTUBE VIDEO HERE[/youtube][/center]
>> Add Welcome Message underneath
>> Add link to forum under welcome message using the code:
Code:
[center][b][url=FORUM INDEX URL HERE]Click here to view our forums[/url][/b][/center]
>> Save
>> Click "Personal Widgets" tab
>> Drag "Welcome" into the middle of the space where you removed the widgets earlier
>> Save
>> Portal Management
>> Welcome > Define as Default Page

DONE

I don't know what you mean. You want a video to be all there is on the homepage?

you can do that or use the Portal feature...The page is already made and all you have to do is add/edit stuff to it...

ADMIN PANEL->MODULES->PORTAL->ENABLE IF NOT DONE SO->EDIT->SAVE
