personally what im interested in is a "news block" template
and i dont mean ur standard news block like in SMF
I am talking about a block with the following settings:
IMAGE URL: (for specifying a small image to appear)
HEADLINE / TOPIC URL:
Now that may seem confusing to look at but what it will do is as follows:
Left aligned an image appears, next to it at the top the topic header, and under it is a small intro post with the Read More...<--link appearing at the end which is basically the Topic URL you originally specified.
it would be a fast way to have a "In the news.." section on your main page
I am using something like that on my page currently >>MY PAGE
but the coding for that is done in plain html so updating is a pain in the butt since I have to edit it manually everyday....
but with the above config it would be easier to just post the urls and get it over with asap making it easier to update daily
