Portal System 2.2.3

Major bug fixes!

Demo: http://ipbmods.net
Last Updated: 6/27/2005

This modification will add a portal to your Invision Board 2.0. A portal is a front page, a center for your site where all the information can come together. This portal has several blocks (listed below) that come with it by default, and a Plugin API so mod authors can create, distribute, and replace blocks as time goes on. You can run this portal inside your forum root directory, or above it. Additionally, a sidebar manager is included, so you can carry a left-hand column site-wide (optional). Would you rather just get something out of the box with no room to grow, or the ability to expand as time goes on, and your site changes? That's what I thought, and that's what most of the member's I have spoken with have agreed upon. With that said, read on to hear some of the features of this portal...

  • NEW! Ability to run portal outside of your forum root
