Hi, I'm serious about a forum start up just like sitepoint but in another niche entirely in my country. Please can anyone please just explain how sitepoint was able to make the home page a wordpress blog type before a user can then click on to forum.

I will also be purchasing Vbulletin 5. I want my homepage to be like a wordpress blog just like sitepoint.com then user too can later click to go to forum.How much customization and software do i need. I will appreciate your response.
