SMF 2.0.18  and TinyPortal 2.0.1 How to have an article only in the center on the front page. Used to be so easy in very early versions of Tiny Portal or I am getting dotty.

Thank you for the outreach. Attachment TP_1 is what I currently have, and TP-2 is what I would like it to be. I have created an article in General Articles and have toggled featured on, but it is not showing up.

marzi, what are your front page settings set to please? 

 Promoted topics only
 Promoted topics + articles - sorted on date
 Only forum-topics
 Forum-topics and articles - sorted on date
 Only articles
 Featured article with frontpanel
 Frontpanel only
 Go directly to forum index

Also, are you using that article as a welcome/intro to your site?  If so you could just add the same thing in a Upper panel block, or Front panel block to achieve the same look.

I would like to use as a Welcome landing page as soon as a visitor arrives.The settings for the front page are seen in the attachment TP-3. I have not changed the panel configuration since installing yesterday. Once again, many thanks.

Ok, I would seriously just add that content to a block on the front page like I mentioned above. 

But never the less, the article should display if it's marked as featured, it also needs to be approved and active before it will show.

If this is on a test site, or a site where you can PM me a test login, I'll gladly take a look at this for you.

I would be glad to PM you but apparently I am not permitted to do so according to the software.
If you send me an email to: tplurk@marscafe.com I will reply with my test site's URL, Login and password.

Ok, there's certainly something wrong with your install as none of the article settings such as Featured will stick.  I will try and replicate this on my test sites and come back.

Meanwhile I've added the text to a block on the front page to show you what I was talking about.
