If you have a portal installed you could use that, alternatively you could use a mod such as:

https://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=255

The mod site is full of useful mods that are free for you to use, always a good idea to see if their is one on the modsite for your needs :)

Replayuk,  majority of mods that were released after 2.0 should work on your forum.  :)

Whats holding me back is i`m unsure if that mod will be the right one for the board, and before installing it i need to be sure as our forum is now very active.
I am also in talks with tinyportal & thinking of adding a block to the top section without adding any mods to do the same thing.

Thankyou for your fast reply

you could always create a test forum on your website for you to try it before you install, just make sure it uses a different database as your main
