Somehow get an Article on Front Page?
« on: November 02, 2019, 06:00:40 PM »
Hi,

Is there any possible way to include promoting an article onto the frontpage when "Forums Only" is the option selected?

Or maybe configure a block to feature an article? I have player highlight article pages which I would like to do player of the week features every week.

Thank you

You can configure the front panel block to show a single article. It will appear before the forum posts.

You are using the frontpage to show blocks, just create a new Block on the frontpanel of type Article: single.

You then choose the article to show on the frontpanel block and there you go...
When you want to change it (feature another article) change the Article in the block...
