Lightbulb Thread on home page

How do I take a certain thread and use that for my front page on my website? I would like to use 1 designated thread and use that for my front page use similar to macrumors.com and mmo-champion.com. How is this done?

I suppose you could use an .htaccess file to redirect all traffic from yoursite.com/index.php to yoursite.com/showthread.php?t=xxxx

If I post some CSS and don't say where it goes, put it in the additional.css template.

I was just going by your description "take a certain thread and use that for my front page" and I posted how to use a thread for your front page. Those sites just look like they are using some sort of CMS and putting several articles on the main page.

Is there some reason you don't just use the CMS itself?
