    For example, the frontpage has interviews, but the forum has them too. Same with videos, reviews, events, etc. So it is more of a second TF website besides the forum.

    A few crazy suggestions.
    I suggest that the frontpage only has one category in which all the articles go, the archives. So you end up with a regular blog (think Geenstijl) with monthly archives.
    And i suggest that the articles themselves are actually forum topics which have been promoted to the frontpage by a mod. Including the replies made in the forum. Comments on the frontpage and replies in the forum should be the same thing, and should show up in both the forum and the frontpage. Ofcourse this is maybe technically impossible.

    Plus.... the articles which are promoted on the frontpage should be more interesting...

    They already are. Might be possible for the members to visit this section in the future as well. To be confirmed. Going step by step still

    - The interview section was a temporary solution when the frontpage was not available yet.
    - I don't agree on having only one category.
    - Google doesn't like duplicate content, so it's either on the forum or on the frontpage.
    - Trying to make a solution for the forum; idea is to have a forum post with a reference to the 'article' (url only) and have comments on that thread display on the frontpage & comments made on the frontpage also go inside that same thread.

    Problem is thateverytime I start writing something vbulletin comes with a new upgrade making me redo everything.

    - if they are not interesting enough, feel free to post articles that do interest you

    Maybe I missed something but the forum is now up and the threads already have the url reference inside the post to the news article? So that's no problem anymore?

    Not anymore no, but it was not suposed to be released to the public yet - needed to do some testing on the development environment but due to circumstances I was forced to make it public today

    Apart from technical issues, is there a reason why the full article is not posted in the corresponding forum topic, and why the FP articles are not located in their respective forums (for example, an FP article about a track's video, would have its topic in Upcoming Releases)? If u do the latter, u wont need to divide the FP into categories anymore, as the forum already has these various subforums.

    The frontpage is there to make a selection of the interesting articles / posts.

    I get that... but was not what i asked
    These articles will get more views/comments if they are in both the forum and frontpage. Without being duplicate if possible, but if thats not possible then perhaps it should just be duplicate?

    If it's on the FP AND the forum then it's duplicate, right? Or you want to rewrite every article which is on the FP and then post it as new version on the forum?

    Im not sure... it could be the same info in the database, just loaded onto a different page, like the replies/comments. Nobody is rewriting all the comments to make them appear on both the FP and the forum i hope.
