Creating a resource area.
« on: February 13, 2018, 06:19:43 PM »

I am creating an area where I am reviewing certain websites and looking for a good way to use SMF to do it.
There would be several hundred sites along with details to the sites.
Something along a resource library I have seen other paid software have like a resource area and trying to think
how to do that the easiest way possible and without a huge amount of editing to add content,

Any one with ideas appreciated.

I have Simple Portal, Tidy Boards and ultimate menu as the only mods I have that can create areas
outside of the obvious built in features of SMF.

Hmmm that might work,  I spent the other day cruising thru the mod list, so many cool items for SMF.
Of course my brain didnt remember this one. I'll take a run in my test forum see if it will work for it
Thank You.

Yes that is it, I installed it, I think with a little tweaking I can make it work for
what I need,  mean I could just make a page and html it but anything that saves time is good.
Think this is what I needed.
Appreciate the help.

Depends on the type of content.

I use SMF Downloads mod so my members can download instructions etc for things to do with motorbikes.
Many portals (eg TinyPortal) have a similar downloads system.


Oh I just re-read your original post and yep SMF Links is probably the way to go.

I gave the links a shot after a few days of tweaking it to work as I needed it didnt quite cut it.
I realize when we try and do something for SMF its not really intended to it can get complicated.

I am doing something more down home, just a html creating a page using the  SP option 
articles and pages depending how I want guest to see the information.

Appreciate the help.
