id like to base the site around one forum so id like that on a main page or portal, id like to keep the other categorys & forums discussion is good for the users and site but id like the main forum to be the first thing they see on the home page

not going to be easy to do the way you are thinking.

why not just make sure that the main category is at the top of the list that way it will be what everyone sees first.

how about if i approach it a different way. I could make viewforum the main page using things like htaccess and links to direct users to this main forum. That would just mean adding custom code to viewforum like a shoutbox, welcome message etc. This would effect all forums though is there any way for code in viewforum.php or veiwforum.html just to apply for a set forum like
<if forum = id> (custom code) <endif>
