Which ones do you use so far? If you plan to have the front page integrated into the forums, then SimplePortal might be a good idea.

Also, Stop Forum Spam, Simple Audio Video Embedder, Users Online Today, Super Simple Thread Tags and such mods are some that we use that can be very handy.

Strange that it didn't work for you. Maybe it conflicted with other mods. One thing, though: Do not use HHVM with SMF. We tried in the past and the entire site was even more broken than Big Rigs: Over the Road Racing. You could ask support in the Simpleportal mod topic on SMF or their official site.

Just make sure to not modify the system files yourself, though. You can, but only if you keep a backup of the files before any modifications were made. Else, if you try to update later it can cause problems.

On a side note, this is not mod-related, but still related to SMF customizing:

If you edit your theme CSS and it doesn't update, but you don't want to force all users to reload their cache to see the changes immediately, then I found a trick to force an immediate refresh:

Basically, in the following code in index.template.php

Code: [Select]
   <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="', $settings['theme_url'], '/css/index', $context['theme_variant'], '.css?fin22" />';
Change the ?fin22 to something like ?fin23. This might be something that @Streetwalrus and @aeTIos might want to know as well, for future theme editing. :P
