Hello MinatO,Welcome to the TinyPortal Support Site.WRT your question #1 in your post above, adding menu items to the top navbar, as Ichbin said, this is controlled by SMF. With SMF 2.0, this is fairly easy. The following topic on SMF is a tutorial about how to do that --> http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=261880.0
Here is an example of a TP/SMF site: Planet DescentNow I will run down what I did. First, Tiny Portal provides the front page, the horizontal menu and above are mostly stock SMF, the only thing I did was a little re-arranging of the horizontal menu. (the one with Home, Forum, etc...)Picture of the Day is just an item in a certain board that is pulled automatically whenever someone puts a new post. Same with Soupe Du Jour and the New section. All the code to do this is provided with TP, just configure it how you want it. Below the picture of the day is a block with custom php and java-script, displaying items from the Zazzle store. Script provided by Zazzle, with some minor tweaks, copy-pasted into a block. Below the Soupe, is the poll. This was custom code written by JPDeni, following my request in the forum here. It is now available in the block code section here.In the forum there are blocks in the right coulumn showing recent posts, and if you were a member you would also see a shoutbox. These are also provided with TP, and just require some setup choices to be made.The Media section is provided by Aeva Media and has no connection to TP, but TP blocks are able to show in the Media section. Right now I only have the shoutbox on but adding recent posts or whatever is just a matter of selecting options.The Files section is provided by TP. I hard coded the link in the menu myself, but other than that it is just the TP downloads module as provided.I have also added Articles to the menu, but sorry that section isn't open to the public yet.
