    thank you helenblog, the home page has interactive and clear looking,

    i got also other issues with the home page of 5.4, you can look at the topic that i posted yesterday :
    https://www.vbulletin.com/forum/foru...cles-home-page

    definitely VB could be better without these issues,,

    1. Click Edit Page on your current home page.
    2. Save the page.
    3. Update the URL so it is "forums" or something similar.
    4. Finish Saving.
    5. Edit the Articles Page.
    6. Change its URL to be empty.
    7. Finish Saving.
    8. Update your Navigation tabs to reflect the new URLs of the respective pages.
    You can also create a custom page and use a three column layout with different search modules to display content in those columns. To create a custom page, just click "New Page" in the site Builder menu.

    Interesting! I didn't know vB5 can do this.

    I found a site that uses vBulletin I think, but in any case this is the type of homepage that i would like to realize using only vBulletin on my site if it's possible..

    thank you for your advice because I really need it since I am a beginner with vBulletin.

    As Wayne Luke suggested then you only follow steps and there is a homepage as your requirement. But if you want to have a better one, I would you have a look on the homepage of this hosting forum https://forumweb.hosting it has 3 columns and showing threads under each one, it will easily to find and read more threads on your homepage. Just a thing, it was vB4, not sure vB5 can customize according to this orient.

    Just my 0.00002 cents!

    I was thinking that too. Looks pretty good at that.

    Not at this time. You could use a three-column layout and use a search engine to pull results from different categories.
