That is basically what mine is. :)

A bunch of extras are nice for some sites, but just a basic news displayer and announcements section is plenty for what I want. :)

Michaelo is making his KISS Portal for Olympus...
It is a full portal and will have options to turn blocks on or off and will have complete ACP control over every aspect of the portal.
Between now and the release of phpBB3, we (STG MOD dev Team) will be working with him to implement some features on KISS.
Some of them include Handyman's fully functional AJAX Chatbox v2 MOD, advanced stats -- including users online for past 24 hours, as well as users online for (specified time), and my SEO (Search Engine Optimization) MOD.

But for a simple portal, none can beat Exreactions. :D

Is there an easy way to check if the user is logged in similar to v2? Or is this now the proper way to check if they are logged in now?

Code: Select all

if ($user->data['user_id'] != ANONYMOUS){
//logged in
}

You mean on a new page?

First you need this(root path may need to be changed):

Code: Select all

define('IN_PHPBB', true);
$phpbb_root_path = './';
$phpEx = substr(strrchr(__FILE__, '.'), 1);
include($phpbb_root_path . 'common.' . $phpEx);

// Start session management
$user->session_begin();
$auth->acl($user->data);
$user->setup();
But otherwise, yes, you can use:

Code: Select all

if ($this->data['user_id'] != ANONYMOUS)
To check if they are logged in. :)

ya.. but no forum softwares have portals (except IPB) Not even vBulletin (which i think is over priced!) because it's a forum software not a CMS. But it would be great to have CMS support such as a bridge thing. (SMF have a bridge to popular CMS softwares (such as Joomla)).

No, phpBB should never come with a portal. phpBB is a Bulletin Board system, not a CMS or anything else.

If you read some of the posts in this thread(or even in my signature) you will notice that there are quite a few portals for phpBB3 out already. ;)
