    My Portal page layout has changed, and I don't know how to alter it back! The layout is different than I want.

    Can it be altered at a user level?

    Mine's changed too. No place to select on the UCP, so I'm thinking it's a global change.

    I amended the layout on the portal yesterday chaps so the articles and news were more prominent. Can you advise as to what layout you would like to see as there is a mechanism I can set up where you can have a different layout - I need to set it up in the manner you want first.

    It involves my setting up a new usergroup which you choose to join in UserCP that is then set to display an alternate portal layout.

    Let me know yeah...:)

    Hi John,

    No need to go to massive trouble, but I like the "new PM" and "Posts since last visit" at the top. I'm not bothered what's on the right, as long as the User CP is top left.

    I understand why you've done it tho, and I just thought it might have been something I'd done!

    If it's easier, leave it as it is, but I'm logged on almost all day at work (I'm a Network Manager!) so refer to that box a lot!

    Okies... I get the meassage..:):)

    I have two options:

    1 - to use the method I outlined above
    2 - to put the UserCP bit back at the top
    3 - to revert to what we had before

    I am still aiming for #1 but scan only find a way to turn specific modules on and off for a new page rather than reposition them. I will keep looking into this, can you hold out for a few more days folks...?

    In the meantime I have done #2...:)
