OK, please be patient with me but what is the Portal for? I have looked at it and I don't get it. What is its purpose? Why would I want to use it?

I'm still trying to figure out how to use it too! Meaning: what can I put on the portal page that adds meaningful content to the forum.
The software developers set it up almost as a default second home page/index page. It is a page to easily add widgets that aren't of value on the index page but are interesting nonetheless, or to add blocks of custom HTML. I like looking at the world map of forum members logged in. Some forums use the portal as a splash page-which I find to be obnoxious.
I could get rid of it, or change the default name of it. One thing I would like to commit that page to is a showcase slide show of members' pictures. But to be feasible, the selections need to be auto-generated and displayed. I haven't found a way yet to make that happen within the constraints of a forumotion forum.
So.....it's just there!

Oh... OK. That is a totally fine answer. I just thought I was missing something. Too bad you can't auto generate for the portal.
I'm not sure what to do with it either, but I like it & look in on it every now and again.
There's not much else to say,
so this topic is closed.
