When I first moved from IBF to vB, I looked high and low for something similiar to IBF's server-side includes (SSI). I could make my own homepage and do a simple php include if I wanted, say, latest topics, or board stats, or calender events. CMPS seemed to be the best thing I could find, I mean it does say
that will allow you to easily include different options from your vBulletin message board on your site's homepage.
I don't want my homepage to be this portal. Some of the content in the portal is exactly what I'm looking for but I have no idea how to use them individually in a custom page.
Excuse me if I missed where it explains to do this, but I can't seem to find an answer. I would expect SSI's to be rather larger aspect of the vB community, if not just from ex-IBF users.
