  • CMS Frontpage Suggestion - Add Headers to Sections under Parent Section

    There must be a way to add header titles to the front page so that you can have all of your related articles under a certain subsection organized neatly. For example:
    Frontpage:
    1. Section 1 Title
    A. Article 1
    B. Article 2

    2. Section 2 Title
    A. Article 1
    B. Article 2

    There have been numerous articles about this so I know I am not the only one. Will this be fixed anytime soon? I see complaints about this dating back a while...

    You can do this with recent article widgets on your Frontpage. Just create a new widget for each section you want to show and insert them in your layout. If you want a workaround to hide the default front-page content see: https://www.vbulletin.com/forum/show...t-in-a-section

      Thanks Wayne. This helps a lot. I am running into an issue where when I try to click the article on the recent articles widget, nothing shows up. It brings me to the location where the article should be but this is blank. Maybe it's hidden in the hidden footer? Any thoughts?

        Yup, when I tried to view the article with the primary content hidden in the secondary footer, it would only show a blank article. When I unhide the primary content, I can now view the article...

          Use a second layout for your subsections. Place the primary content widget in a non-hidden area of the page and it will show up and you can hide it on your homepage.

          I have two layouts - sitename and sitename_content. The first hides the primary_content because I don't want it on the homepage. The second doesn't. You can assign llayouts by editing the section in the front-end. Hover over the section name and click on the pencil.

          See http://www.wayneflix.com for a semi-live example.
