Hm... you could always use the "Recent Topics" widget and place it in the MOTD -- that will allow you to show the latest threads on the front page.
You could also use this plugin to manually pick threads to feature, or possibly use this plugin to override the main homepage.
@online-0227 said in Can NodeBB apply different theme per each forums on index page (home or top)?:
@scottalanmiller got it, thank you very much.
Now if you made a plugin, I'm sure that there would be a way to do what you want, but it's not built in functionality.
Ahhhh, Why would you want to do something so evil!!
Anyway, just call bootbox in the Custom HTML section of the ACP. (Make sure you check the box at the bottom.)
