Conceptually, there aren't any definitions for what an island is, portal, and all of the other myriad of options on that whole "portal setup" screen.

I was trying to conceptualize what basic settings would result in what. smile

I don't think a screen shot of the control panel for this forum, would be a security breach, would it? Then I could match up what I see on my screen here, with the settings that are set, within the 5 sub sets of the Portal control panel section. smile

Like, what's a custom island for?
or a gallery island? A post island? (mine are all undefined)
Do I need 1? or 5? smile

...although I have just discovered that while I thought your UBB.Wiki was empty, it does have some detail on the portal.

But, are we looking at the portal now? (here)
Or are we seeing a sub-portal or something?

the text of the UBB.Wiki describes the portal as the "main screen"... but it's all I ever see here. Am I missing an option to see forums only, without the left and right add-ons?

You also describe the main screen of the portal, as containing your "news" items... from where? Everywhere? Is that the announcements from various forums?

ok, I think I have it...

Does this forum, have 6 post islands, no custom ones, and no gallery islands, at present?

Is that how when you ask for a forum list, you see 6 blocks, that look a lot like forum categories?

Or, I could make one, pick "All forums" for it, and it would then be one block, showing all of my categories, plus their sub-forums?

Well, A lot of questions to answer at once. But here we go.
The portal would be the link in the header that states "Portal Page'
Which can be somewhat different than the forum page.

This site has starting from the top left down then right top down.
Site links = custom island
Whos's online = canned island
Featured Member = Canned Island.
Top Posters = Canned Island
Latest Photos = Gallery island

Right Side
Shout Box = Canned island
Calendar = Canned Island
Today's Birthdays = Canned island
Recent Topics = Canned Island
Forum Stats = Canned Island
Random Image = custom Island

Thanks Gliderdad, got that.

The other thing I am stuck on, is that it implies that I will expose private forums, by including them in islands....?

Yes, the recent posts and latest topics ignore permissions so be careful which forums you allow to be pulled in. Hopefully that will be a feature down the road.
