I don't mean for this to sound unkind and I'm sorry if it does... but I get the feeling that we'd be "on our own" if we choose EhPortal. My question was a simple one. Thanks anyway.

Almost the same. I'd say go to the Portal settings and look for Configurations, click on and when it opens look for General Settings, then put the Portal Mode in "Integration" this stops the shout box from appearing on the portal page, but will show on every page of the forum.I hope this helps you Grammy. Also welcome to the forum, nice to have you with us.Ron.

Now the Shout Box will display on the selections you have selected.

Quote from: Grammy on May 21, 2021, 09:58:23 AMI just wanted to stop back by and let you guys know that I've sorted out why my block's Display area wasn't appearing (because someone else may wander by with the same issue). In order for the Display area to appear, it seems you MUST have the block setting "Display Blocks In Forum" checked. (That seems obvious but when you're just feeling your way around and you already know that you don't want all those blocks crowding your forum, you may not check that field, as I didn't.) Once you check that, the Display area will appear in your blocks settings. It will not, if that setting is left unchecked. You can choose all the places you do NOT want the blocks to appear. So, all in all, I think I have this sorted. Best wishes to Chen and the hope for a speedy recovery.Thanks Ron and Vince!
