  • [vB4] 'Ideal' CMS frontpage?

    Soon I'll upgrade my 3.x forum to 4.x Suite with a CMS/frontpage. I've seen a lot of CMS pages, all with a different column, widget and information layout.

    I'm wondering what info is a must to put on the frontpage (beside news). There are so many options like:


    - Recent Blog Posts
    - Recent Comments
    - Recent Forum Posts
    - Poll widget
    - Recent Activity Widget
    - Calendar
    - Clock
    - Weather widget
    - Forum Stats
    - Advertisement
    - Site sponsors
    - RSS Feed
    - Random gallery picture
    - Tags
    - etc...

    And what info is absolute meaningless for a frontpage?

    I'd say maybe include these

    - Recent Blog Posts
    - Recent Forum Posts
    - Poll widget
    - Recent Activity Widget
    - Random gallery picture
    - Tags

      I especially recommend the Recent Forum Posts widget. It connects the CMS with the rest of the forum very nice.

        I agree. Unfortunately, there isn't any nice and user-friendly Recent Forum Posts Widget for the CMS yet, in my opinion.

        I wish IB - or somebody else - would create a recent forum post widget similar to the standard module provided in the VBA CMPS.

          I like the one included from the start. I've not used VBA, what makes their better?
