    ok, I hope I don't get spanked for putting a suggestion on this "problems only" section, but there is no "suggestions" section, so here goes

    how bout we make the home page customizeable...you know...like yahoo...I could put my stock portfolio, sports, news headlines in the sidebar....

    this would be a side bar to the home page...everyone would make ntfs their home page if we could get that going somehow

    That would be down to Tingle, as we use Virtuanews, perhaps that could be a feature in a future version - we are still playing around with what we have ;)

    I'll probably get beaten to death with an army boot for saying this, but why the hell are you using virtua news?!?
    build your own content management system.

    Why would we spend time coding and perfecting a news portal system when VirtuaNews more than copes with our needs.

    Because it's cool to have our own. If I knew how to, I would help :)

    Because when you do your own it is always more suiting to your needs , more specified for this site, and if you know the right people (or are the right people) , its free.
    anyway, virtuanews is cool, but you will always depend on them.
    if it was your own system, you could have done dealers suggestion without depending on anyone else.

    It would take too long and we would be directly liable for damages caused by security flaws.

    We are sticking with virtuanews and have no plans to switch.

    Just a suggestion, no need to bite my head off.
