Eliminating stories on the "Home" page

Hello,

I'm using Forums for discussion, and the "stories" function of Geeklog for more substantial "articles." To keep the main page clean, I would like to eliminate the stories/news.

I realize I can set the _default_ number of stories per page using limitnews and that users can override this. And I already have eliminated the "No news to display" by editing index.php.

My question is how can I eliminate the stories altogether when a topic is not selected?

Thanks,
Jsignal

You could try making a "Static Page" and choose in the Position box "Entire Page" and in the Topic box "Homepage Only". Never used it myself.

HTH,

okay
Hey, thanks. I didn't realize there was an "entire page" option. That seems to do the trick!

Another way that does not involve static pages. Just makes sure someone is always in a topic.

Cheers,
