After looking at that forum for a bit it has me wanting to make quite a few changes.
First, the way the front page is set up would be greatly beneficial to me seeing that I can link articles and other features from the main portion of my site directly into my forums.
Here is the current setup that PanBB.Ru has for his front page -
Here are the change I would like to make to that set up -
1. Move the navigation options to this arrangement for a cleaner layout.
2. Have the ability to move widgets to better increase exposure for the rest of my site. The site that hosts my forums contains over 1100 sports articles and having the ability to include a wordpress widget in the sidebar of the forums would make navigation within my site easier and greatly increase the number of hits.
3. Possibly have the ability to tag the last post username with it's corresponding avatar scaled down to about 22px or less.
