With so many new addons being created everyday, choosing the right one can be a bit challenging. Scrolling through an endless list of addons can be time consuming and once you find the perfect one there is no guarantee that it will work.
Here is where the Community Portal addon developed by the Noobs and Nerds team can help. What makes Community Portal so unique is it lists all the most used addons and puts them in a list which is sorted according to popularity.
So rather than going through a huge list of addons, Community Portal will recommend good addons to you based on what is trending in the Kodi community, hence the name Community Portal.
As I mentioned before, this addon was created by the same developers that made the Noobs and Nerds repository (NaN Repo). In order for you to start using this addon you must first install the NaN repository.
We will show you briefly how to do that in this tutorial but if you want to see what else this great repository can do you can read our full guide on how to install the NaN repo.
