Basic Portal Components Compiled
Ok, this is a list of basic available portal components. that I've compiled into one place to make it easier.

All you need to do is pick the portal components you want then go to this Tutorial Here to find out where to put them.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------
The Front Page

You Can Change The bit below in bold in admin panel --- 3. Styles --- Portal Settings --- FRONTPAGE

[FRONTPAGE]
title=Latest Articles
count=10
return_chars=200
show_title=1



return_chars is how many characters of a front page article will be displayed. Articles longer than this will be truncated with "...".

count is the number of articles to display.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------
The Visits

Code:
{MYFF.VISITS}


It shows recently online members.

the count parameter
Code:
{MYFF.VISITS count="10"}

are:
count - how many members to show as a maximum


--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Top Posters

Placed in a forum template, you might have:
Code:
{MYFF.TOPPOSTERS count="5"}


count is how many members to show, the number can be more or less depending on how many you want to show.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------
The Links Menu

You Can Change The bit below in bold in admin panel --- 3. Styles --- Portal Settings --- LINKSMENU

[LINKSMENU]
title=My Links
item1=Myfreeforum
link1=http://www.myfreeforum.org
item2=Myfastforum
link2=http://www.myfastforum.org


Title - lets you change the default name to what you want
item - is the name for each link
link - well that is an obvious one

Placed in a forum template, you might have:
Code:
{MYFF.LINKSMENU}



--------------------------------------------------------------------------
The Main Menu

You Can Change The bit below in bold in admin panel --- 3. Styles --- Portal Settings --- MAINMENU

[MAINMENU]

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Popular Topics

You Can Change The bit below in bold in admin panel --- 3. Styles --- Portal Settings --- POPULAR

[POPULAR]
count=10
topics=500


count is how many articles to show.

topics is how many recent topics to look at. Keeping topics down to a sensible number means that the ongoing "word association" thread that has been running since the beginning of the forum won't show up, neither will other threads that were popular in the dim distant past.

Placed in a forum template, you might have:
Code:
{MYFF.POPULAR}



--------------------------------------------------------------------------
