The board index (home) page is configurable to show the forums in a number of ways. Here is a little cheat-sheet on how to set up the board index.

Clicking on ""Expand", "Collapse", or "Auto" in the header in the first column controls what the index displays about each forum.

"Collapse" is the minimal display. It shows only the forum categories. If a category contains a forum with a new post, the icon will be colored. Clicking on a collapsed forum category will expand it and show the forums within that category. The forums that it shows depends on whether "Show all forums" or "Show selected forums only" is selected (explained below).

"Expand" is the maximal display. It shows the forum categories expanded to the forums contained in them. If a forum contains a new post, the icon in the left column will be colored.

"Auto" is a mix. If a category contains no new posts, the category will be collapsed. If a category contains new posts, the category will be expanded, but will only show the forums with new posts, and the icon for the category will be colored.

The second column header also has choices: "Show all forums" or "Show selected forums only".

When "Show all forums" is selected, all forums are included in the index.

When "Show selected forums only" is selected, only forums that you have selected as favorites will be included in the index, and the "New Posts" button will only indicate new posts in your selected forums. It will not indicate new posts in other forums. The "Find topics with new posts" will only find topics in your selected forums. Other forums will be ignored.

To add a forum to your selected forums, you must be in the "Show all forums" mode and "Expand". Click on the forum you wish to add to your selected forums. At the top right in the button panel will be an "Add Favorite" button. Clicking that will add that forum to your selections.

To remove a forum from your selections, open the forum. At the top right in the button panel will be a "Delete Favorite" button. Clicking that will remove the forum from your selected forums, making it invisible unless you are in the "Show all forums" mode.

FWIW: My normal settings are "Auto" and "Show all forums".
