    Hi, there.
    I've successfully changed CSS file, and the new forum looks great!
    But still, I want to change forum homepage display, which displays categories and their hottest threads(several).
    I know that python view and JavaScript change is needed, but still I have no idea about how to start.
    I mean, which directory? Is it in the testforum(app folder created by "misago-start.py testforum") directory? or in the Misago directory?
    Any tip is appreciated.

    How much experience with Django do you have? As documentation says, Misago is basically set of Django modules (called "Django apps") preconfigured to work together as internet forum. Before getting started you should understand what Django apps are and how they are loaded and used to create working site trough templates and urls.

    Thanks for reply!
    I have some basic django understandings.
    So can I start by changing testforum/theme/templates ? Will this work?
    Thanks again!

    For starters you could put aside JS view for now and just create custom Django app that would have its own templates and view doing what you are after. If you register its url before Misago's in your project's urls.py, it will be used before Misago's one. That way after you change forum's index from threads lists to categories view, Misago should display your own index view instead of one provided by Misago
