I'm wanting to ditch my index.html and instead have visitors land at the portal.
What are my options for doing that, and what is "the best" way?

Also, can I make my portal different than my other forums?
For instance, I don't want my portal to show the Shout box.
Is that what the portal.tpl is, or is there another way?

imo, the best way would be an index.php file which would auto send people to your install:

index.php:
Code
<?php
	header("Location: forum/ubbthreads.php");
	exit;
?>

Okay sweet .. got the index.php working...

Now for part two of the question:
can I make my portal different than my other forums?
For instance, I don't want my portal to show the Shout box.
Is that what the portal.tpl is, or is there another way?

Well, the sidebars are technically a part of the cms, whereas the portal page is just the main landing of the ubbcms itself...

I'm not entirely sure hwo to have elements be stripped from certain pages yet remain on the others
