News and Newsletters ezblock?
« on: December 03, 2021, 10:40:31 am »
Sorry if this has been asked before.  I can't seem to find it anywhere.

Is there a News and Newsletters ezblock?  I'd like something for like forum announcements etc on the front page of the forum.

Is that worth a feature request?  I know that I can just type news in to a block on the front page so I don't know that it's worth while?

Maybe, I guess how would it work. A random news entry? Or fader? Normally this is part of the theme though.

Yea, I'm not sure. 

I'm converting from phpbb so forgive my ignorance. 

I see view the news the same way as I would announcements in phpbb.  Probably ignorant in thinking? 

I'd like something that puts up site announcements similar to what's happening in phpbb but I don't know if that's even possible.  I create an announcement in a forum and it shows in the portal front page in phpbb.

Oh an announcement is different in SMF. There is no built in feature to make a site wide announcement without the use of mods for SMF.
What we do in SMF is have a board dedicated news.  We call the news block in ezPortal where you can select a block to pull the latest posts from that news forum and you can use that in the portal.
