How to filter forums in my "Frontpage" portal?


Enter your myff forum url here, if the issue is on a particular part of the forum, then give a link to where the problem actually is. Do not enter your own domain name it must be the actual myff link :

problem here: http://peaceonearth.myfreeforum.o...=6e316b514fe064a176808fc8508c0471

If you are asking a template related question, what is the name of the template:


Please indicate keywords you have searched on:

frontpage, front page, portal

Now ask your question in clear English without "txt" speak>>>>

I'm trying to get the Frontpage Portal to display the five latest articles from 3 forums only.

However, in the Frontpage "Portal Settings" form, under "Filter," when I click the "Portal" radio button and then list the three forums in the "Portal Forums" box, no articles show up in the Frontpage table.  Articles will only show up if I click the "All" button.

I've tried several ways of identifiying the forums, such as Direct Action, "Direct Action," and Direct_Action, but I think I'm doing something wrong, as none of them have worked.

Any suggestions will be much appreciated, thank you

You need the forum number, from the forums link.

Okay thanks!  I didn't know forums had numbers, but I found them.   I think I can take it from here.

p.s. do you offer a news fader portal for phpBB2?  I can't find one in the admin "portal settings" panel, and there's no "options" tab in my control panel, and no cms_fader.tpl file in my edit portal drop-down list.


Scratch all of above, everything seems to be under control now, thanks for the tips! Forum Index -> Portal components
