I'm looking to use IPB as my forum, but would also like to integrate it with my home page. I've got IPBWI on an other site, but it seems limited in functionality.
What I'm ideally after is something like wordpress for the front page, that automatically creates a topic in the forum, with exactly the same info as the front page post. I can then draw all comments from the forum through to the front page.
With IPBWI, I struggle to get it looking good on the front page.
