    This theme also uses a variety of theme hooks, if you need them done you could contact a developer on these forums.

    If you have a large budget you could sign up for the SaaS version of vanilla; and then can do it for you.

    Are you referring to the latest developer posts modules?

    There is a module called Promoted Content in 2.1+ that could easily be wrapped in a plugin.

    Also, obligatory plug for my Latest Post List plugin.

    First you need a plugin or a custom code to get latest discussions from a category (Developers category in the example forum).

    Second you must set the forum homepage to use the Category view and set the Category view to use the Mixed layout. This can be done in the Homepage tab of the admin panel.

    Now that you have a single column list of categories, a bunch of latest discussions for each category and the custom header that you want (latest posts from Developers) you must customize CSS (and html if necessary) to have the two column view, the top slider, custom colors and images.
