I was wondering; How can I pull (for example), 100 topics from the forum I select, but only display 10 of them on one page? Then at the bottom of the first page, a link would appear to view the next 10 topics which have been pulled.

Also, how can I permalink my articles on the portal? When linking somebody to an article, if I send them an article link which is not permalinked then if a new article gets posted and pulled, the link I sent to a friend wouldn't be linking to the article I want as the article ID isn't assigned to a specific article, just the 5th article posted on the home page (if the article ID was 5).

The only solution I see for permalinking, is to reverse the article ID numbers (with the newest article ID NOT being 0, but being the X'th article posted. E.g if there were already 23 posted, the next article ID would be 24.)

Do you understand what I mean? Is there a way I can do the above? If not I'm going to be sticking to my wordpress - (which is all very nice, but I just love the phpbb portal integrated with my forums!) :)
Bump.

I have no problems like that, maybe your host has some problems.

And does anyone know how to fix the problem with the polls on the portal?

A bug:
Change the welcome (plain text only). Max. 600 characters!
is what's listed next to the welcome part of the ACP
but then if you fill in something kinda long:
Warning

The entered value for the setting “Welcome message” is too long. The maximal allowed length is 255.
is the error you get.

So which is it? :P

255.

Theres a way on phpbb3portal.com explaining how to overcome this and also how to use html and special characters.

Yeah I already went in and changed it myself, but the discrepancy is confusing.

Umm i am having a issue install the portal. The portal_install.php when i point my browser to it turns up a blank page and the edits to the files is it the portal files or forum files cause i edited the ones in the forum files. I purged the cache already on my site and for some reason the install files didnt want me to move the style files at all so i moved the files anyways and i get a error like this http://blizzgamer.lhosting.info/portal/index.php link i said above though i did the edits to my forum already installed so should i undo those changes and do them to the ones in the portal because if so then why not have them already edited.
