Is there any way, to set the portal as homepage, instead of the forums?
Hello,

Go to

Admin CP -> Configurations -> Site DetailsĀ -> Homepage URL

Add /portal.php at the end of the URL and save.

If you need anymore support please reply.
ok i got that part, but what i would like is the portal to come up when you go to :

http://www.outlawsgameroom.com/forum/index.php.

it still goes to the forum area
You need to set an htaccess redirect for that. Search the forum if someone does not post it here, it's come up plenty of times.
Try

Rename htaccess.txt to .htaccess or create a new file in your FTP.

Now enter this code in it:
DirectoryIndex portal.php 

Hope this helps.

NOTE: If some of your forums links stop working after you rename the htaccess.txt to .htaccess to fix it enable search engine friendly URLs in your forum settings.
no didnt do a bit of good

As Brian. said, add this line in .htaccess file(Notice the .) in the Forum Root Directory

DirectoryIndex portal.php index.php
after that save the file and open http://www.outlawsgameroom.com/forum/

(Without index.php)
