"Home" and "Forum" Tabs

I was noticing that some SMF Forums have a "Home" tab for graphics, messages and such and a "Forum" tab where the actual categories are placed.  I'd like that for my website and would love to know how to do it.

Thanks! :)

They are using the Portal System.
The Guide for it is here:  http://www.smfsupport.com/support/guides_and_tutorials/guide_guide_to_setting_up_the_portal-t7729.0.html;msg36998#msg36998

Thank you Sybil!  I don't know what a Portal System is though?  Do SMFForFree3 servers have it too?   :)

yes, its on server 3 too.
Check the Guide.. there is a Screenshot there of a forum with the portal set up.
Its just a "front page" that your members can come to first. 
When you enable it you will then have a Home, and Forum tab.
Play with it on your test site to see what you can do with it.
