I'm trying to do something similar to leaguetrainer.
My commercial theme 'forumengine' has a predefined homepage as 'threads index'; of which, displays all the recent posts in the forum.
While that is fine, I want to add additional plugins to the home page (such as a image gallery) but for some reason any modifications to this 'threads index' page do not work. I can't insert text, any plugin, etc.
So I figured I would just change the home page to a different page (because I am able to add plug ins on any other page that is not 'threads index.' To do so I went to options > reading > change front page to x. Whenever I try to change the front page away from 'threads index' it just automatically reverts back to 'threads index'. I can't seem to do anything about it.
The theme creators won't help me but that I can do it myself. I just have no idea where to begin. Help!!
