I installed Tiny Portal today on my forum.

Now the small Shout Box appears on the left side of the forum, sorry but I don't like it there.

Is there a way to move the Sout Box to the top of the forum.

1.  Click on the "TinyPortal" menu button.

2.  Look in the left "Menu" panel, under "Panels and Blocks", click on "Blocks".

3.  Under "Left Panel Blocks" in the "Move Block" section just choose where you want it to go.

4.  Then choose a number to order the blocks in that panel to place it where you'd like.

Sorry but I can't get the shout box to sit on the top of the forum.

I have never used TP before and it is very confusing portal.

Ah! I see what you want now. You have to go into the settings for that block and make sure "Forum" is checked for what pages you want it to show.

I have tried everything possible. Just will not show on main page..
To confusing to use, have to remove it..

It's really simple to put it where you want.  Just move it to a top or upper block. (or create a new one). And choose a layout for the shoutbox suitable for going across the page, there's four different shoutbox layouts to choose from.

I would also advise people check out the docs https://www.tinyportal.net/docs/index.php

Ronald I am a TP user and have checked out all the others and keep coming back to tinyportal. Sure it's not always entirely intuitive but its VERY flexible.
Stick with it mate you won't regret it in the longer term.
I reject your reality, and substitute my own.

I ended up going back to EHPortal

Thanks Les. 

Not that this is relevant now, but I would defo take that a step further and choose one of the two TP Shoutbox layouts designed specifically for going across the page. The one in your vid is the layout for going in a side panel, hence why it's taking up too much of the page.

But yes, moving it really is that simple.  ;)

I tried a few different things, and it would never show up, I did get it on the side, but I do not like side bars.

I may try it again at a later date.

Thanks for posting this video.
