    Any way to make blogs the landing page instead of forums? Seems all the seasoned users just click "What's New" anyway. New folks who might be a bit overwhelmed by the forums can get a sense of things from the blogs. And then dive deeper into the forums.
    In 4.2 you can make any page the landing page using the new navigation bar manager.

    Totally agree. Has vb even posted a point of view or shared their vision for how this should actually work?

    It isn't going to be fixed in vB4.

    Hey guys,

    I also found this annoying, and my users complained.

    I've done a work around by creating a forum called "blog entries" and having the rss poster robot repost blog entires into that forum.

    I only do a feed:description and have a link that says "click here to read the full story and to join the discussion!" for each entry.

    I've also disabled posting for everyone in that forum, so no one can reply to the blog entries there.

    Oh yeah, and my subject lines are: {feed:dc:creator}'s Blog - {feed:title}

    Which gives the subject of "username's blog - my blog entries title" as the forum post.

    It will not happen until *at least* 4.1 since it involves a major architectural change.

    TBH, I wouldn't hold out much hope for 4.1 either. I just don't think this is seen as a priority, much as I consider it essential.

    That's the spirit... well, not really.

    I'd just like to hear from someone about it.

    Give them time... I'm sure they will figure it out by vB 5.0 that a suite needs to work together seamlessly...

    This feature was requested WAY back when the 1st beta was released and here we are many months later and vB still don't understand that ALL their products needs to work together for be considered a suite.

    No fear though.. I am sure they will 'get it together' by the time they release vB 5.0 and ask for more money...

    I'm also very interested in this... I have members asking for it all the time.

    I would have expected it to be a 4.0 feature, since Blogs are now integrated, and not an add-on package.

    I've been out of the loop for a while. Has there been any update on this?

    I would love this as well, but for 3.8 (since I have the blogs installed currently)
    I don't see why this isn't a default feature, we should include new forum post, new blog post and new group post (maybe)

    that's exactly how it should be done!

    Anyone from vB want to address this thread?
