Since we're using phpBB for the forum system, we have the capability to use or create extensions. I'm looking into utilizing the Pages extension to allow for us to put out some static content on the forum. The only issue with that is the extension, by default, does not have a search or browse capability. So I'm currently working on going about editing the extension to fit our needs. That will make it easier for us to push out static content.
I've been looking for a way to have a better news system. We don't currently have a way to show news other than physically coming to this forum and checking the recent posts. So I might end up writing an extension to allow for quick views of recent news on a page by itself.
I'm also working on redoing the home page. It's currently just a quick and static page done up very quickly. I will eventually try to incorporate a "Recent Activity" feature into the home page, along with some better content and some more navigation capabilities.
Let me know what you guys think!
