As for a video, get the embeddable code of the video & add it on a widget on the portal.

There is no homepage message on the forum.
Its the site description, below which the navbar appears.

Code:
<embed src="http://www.metacafe.com/fplayer/395790/300_movie.swf" width="400" height="345" wmode="transparent" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowFullScreen="true" allowScriptAccess="always" name="Metacafe_395790"> </embed><br><font size = 1><a href="http://www.metacafe.com/watch/395790/300_movie/">300 Movie</a> - <a href="http://www.metacafe.com/">More amazing videos are a click away</a></font>

Thats the code, add it to a portal widget. Make sure you add the widget at the center whose size is 60%. because i feel the size of the video player might be big.

Hello,

For video thing, try hitting the A/A button on the top-right corner before you add the embed code.

Log-in pop up will only show up if you are not logged in Wink
If you have click 'Don't show this again!', it won't show up for you again.

Well, did you hit the a/A button & then entered the code?

I cannot check it in anyway since i don't have access to the admin panel.

Well, don't hit the a/A button now. Since you hit it once, it will remain the same way for your next visits on the forum.
So next time just add the code & it should be fine.

My job is to get troubled. Glad i could help.
Since this thread appears to be solved, I will lock this thread and mark it as solved.
