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...

Not really: you use the front panel to show blocks on the Frontpage ...
