The boards you can select in the CBT block.
If you don't see the topics, set the value on "Max number of topics in each board" to 0  ;)

I think it's connected to different software totally so it would take to much work, but just for thought - ZCommunty blog post would be cool to display in front page sometime in future :)

Would be nice to have "latest videos" latest audio, downloads etc options/blocks.
- but i think this will be done whit code spinets instead right?



Language selector & polls is definitely really good option, i was looking for that :)




Also, for the news - can i also have some boards where from news come? For example i have board named "news" where i post news whit pictures - can i display this also as a separate news section on front page whit link to comments (reply's) and maybe also add pictures to the news what is in the post (for option username, rank etc). Reason for that is, that i do not want to display any kind of news in my front page but only selected one that i post my self in news section of forum.
Other option i can imagine i should be able to use right now would be to add RSS addon to SMF forum ( http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=376 ) & then copy this RSS link from this topic to PortaMX rss news poster right?

Also option for different block like i show you before in http://www.drugs-forum.com would be the coolest option of all - this would allow to add so many more blocks and things to front page and in same time would not clutter or slow down front page to much. For some reason original software website does not use this option ( they use vbadvanced / CMPS )

for that you need a simple php script (less 10 lines)  ::)
Try this
Code Select

global $smcFunc;

$request = $smcFunc['db_query']('', '
SELECT id_cat, name
FROM {db_prefix}categories
ORDER BY cat_order ASC',
array()
);

while($row = $smcFunc['db_fetch_assoc']($request))
echo '
<div><a href="'. $scripturl .'?action=forum;#c'. $row['id_cat'] .'">'. $row['name'] .'</a></div>';

$smcFunc['db_free_result']($request);

Cool would be to have an option to edit and modify the
boardnames and categories of the forum just on ONE page,
so that I can change names of categories and boardnames
for several boards and categories just on one page and their
sorting.

It is a nightmare now to add 100 categories and/or 100 board
names with all the descriptions or make the sorting different ...

Maybe there is already another MOD for this ?
I did not look this up yet, but it would be cool,
if there would be something like this also in PortaMX,
cause the less MODs one installs, the better a system works...

Many thanks.

I would love, if possible, to have more layout possibilities for the blocks in frontpage but not a big deal if not possible just that I can't support the idea of other portal systems having something PMX doesn't! ;D

edit:
just to elaborate my idea, some possibilities for layouts.

1st
Possibility to have the first line with just one column and 2 or 3 columns on the lines bellow
ex:

_____________________________________
|                                                               |
|                                                               |
|                                                               |
----------------------------------------------------
|                             |                                 |
|                             |                                 |
|                             |                                 |
|                             |                                 |
----------------------------------------------------
|                             |                                 |
|                             |                                 |
|                             |                                 |
|                             |                                 |
-----------------------------------------------------

2nd
Possibility to have more than 2 colums

3rd
Possibility to display blocks no just up and down but also side by side setting the width size (percentage?).
ex.

______________________   ________________________________
|         BLOCK1                |  |                    BLOCK2                      |
-------------------------------   ---------------------------------------------
|                                     |  |                          |                          |
|                                     |  |                          |                          |
|                                     |  |                          |                          |
|                                     |  |                          |                          |
|                                     |  |                          |                          |

  • Calendar block. It's allready done so why don't include with the options to show/not show events,birthdays...Even we could see to improve the code ¿Is it possible to make show the events on mouse in with an small flating bar with the link?¿And if birthday could show the avatar in the floating window?

  • News fader block. I know it can be done but having it with some option like speed, and if can be independient from forum news, like we have the some control for that including the possibility to use the bbc code.. (the one in smf is very uncomfortable to use)

I think there's no point duplicating the SMF news fader. That would be unnecessary bloat IMO.
You can already grab the code for the SMF news fader and drop in a block if you like.
Using Internet Explorer 6 on the internet is like urinating in a public swimming pool.
It's rude, there's no excuse for it, and anyone who does it should be ashamed of themselves.

Both is unecessary and I do not add that as standard block in PortaMx.
I have post a good calendar code snipped and I can post the code for a news block as I use here.

Is is easily possible to add blocks on each forum´s page between
single postings ?

So will it be possible to add a block between posting 1 and posting 2
for example ?
The postings number should be able to set in the PAC admin panel.

This way, one would not need to install SMFADS mod, which only
works with the standard theme, so one would only
need PortaMX only, if one wants to have ads between some postings..

( By the way, this is the best place to have ads in a forum, as the border
ads are not clicked much...I tried lots of different ad positions, and ads between
the forum postings work still the best for Google Adsense)

Regards, Stefan.

The boardindex, messageindex and topics have nothing to do with PortaMx .. it's SMF's part.
If you would add Advertisements between the postings or on messageindex, the you have to modify these files.

I hate ads between posts. I usually vacate the site if I have to put up with those. Make sure you don't drive your members away by putting too many ads in their faces.

Anyway the Mod you say works on others themes than Default. You should ask the that plugin developer for help... I don't think PortalMx should get that much.

Yeah,
I don´t like ads too much too,
but it is the only way you get still some users
to click on them at all.

And if you use Google Adsense just only with
ONE ad between the postings so that it looks
exactly like a posting with the same colors, it is not too
annoying.

I tested it all and this works best for getting more Adsense clicks.
I am using in this moment SMFAds Mod but it is not 100 % compatible
with the SMF 2.0RC1 release yet and it also works only
on the default template, so it would be cool, if Feline
could do a simple mod like this integrated into her PortaMX.

Fel;

You really need to look into the Shout Box code as it caused me the same problem again for the second time and my forum is again down.
