Hey, I'll get some basic docs up soon
Here's an intro:
The plugin works by featuring topics, you can use
Topic Tools from within a topic to feature that specific topic, or new topics in a category can be auto-featured by using the plugin's ACP page.
The topics can be featured on widgets and/or on the
/news page. The news page uses a special blog-like template which you can customise on the plugin ACP page. The news page can also be set to your forum homepage in
General=>Homepage in the ACP. The news page also has an extensive amount of widget areas including header, footer, left bar, right bar, before topics, after topics, and between topics.
Let me know if anything doesn't work for you or you want something added. The plugin is barely in a beta state, and I haven't added half the features I want in the final plugin yet.
