Anything like MyBB portal for homepage? (last posts from certain forum in homepage)

Hello, is there any extension that allows me to show the last posts from some specific forums in the homepage of my website?
On MyBB I was using their built-in portal. I'm planning to move to phpbb because I need to develop a plugin and I hate mybb nonexistent template engine.
Thanks in advance :-)

try the other extension forums. I don't know if there is a current one for php 3.2.5 but there have been plenty of them available for a while.

Hi robert,
what do you mean with "other extensions forum"? You mean here on phpbb.com or other forums?
Can you give me some names?
Thanks :-)

the extension forums here on the phpbb board:

viewforum.php?f=451

where you are right now is the extension request forum. this is for requesting someone to create a new extension for you.

the other forums in this category are for different discussion about extensions.


luck,
robert

There is no portal extension, which is actively developed and which is in the CDB (recommended for live boards). All that can be found here are more or less abandoned by the author.

The version for 3.2.x can be found here: http://reyno41.bplaced.net/phpbb/downlo ... php?id=496
works perfectly on 3.2.5, pity is not "validated".
Furthermore, the risk is abandoned is high

Can confirm that sitemaker + the pages extension works perfectly. Pages to make the portal page, sitemaker to set it to the startpage and for the sidebar/features.
