With 3.0.12 it was possible to custom page set as homepage define with .htaccess

Code: Select all

     DirectoryIndex custom.php index.php index.html index.htm
With 3.1.* this not work

Code: Select all

    DirectoryIndex app.php/custom index.php index.html index.htm

Code: Select all

custom_main_controller:
 path: /custom
 defaults: { _controller: wintstar.custom.controller:display }
How does it work in 3.1. *?

Leave the DirectoryIndex and routing files as you currently have them in your code above and add a custom.php file with this (add your phpBB directory if applicable):

Code: Select all

<?php
header("Location: http://www.yoursite.tld/custom");
exit;

Yeah, I had to do that with my site too. I spent days messing with .htaccess rules and ended up just rigging it this way. ;)

My phpbb 3.1.5 forum is installed at www.xyz.com/forum
I wanted to have similar looking (Prosilver SE) custom index page at www.xyz.com

Can any one guide me what are the files and codes i need to create and which directory i have to put it. so that if anyone goes to www.xyz.com they can see my custom index page and link to the forum as well.
