Hi Tahir,

When you create a news item it should automatically show on the homepage of the portal. If you are not seeing news items on the portal make sure you have the correct language and brand selected for the news item. When you have news items you might see something like this on the homepage of the portal, which should display the three most recent news items:

As for links to KB articles, you can utilize Custom Links, Custom Messages, or Custom CSS (in the Portal tab), in the brand settings. We do something similar on our portal homepage, https://portal.smartertools.com/Main/. You can see on the right-hand side we link to some of our kb articles under the "Support Options" section.

Thanks Emily for the response. Would you be kind enough to share the CSS that has been used on your portal.smartertools.com. This is what I am looking for. I will change the links etc in the css this will make thing easier for me to update and modify the portal main page.

You can seem to do EVERYTHING with CSS override, except center the navigation buttons.

If you figure out how to do this, please let me know.

There's an old post where Derek Curtis gave an example of how you can some text on the right and other text on the left, https://portal.smartertools.com/community/a766/MasterPages/#1985
