Custom Page to Startpage

Post by wintstar »

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. *?
Regards wintstar

There are people who say I have no idea what I'm writing about, and I don't understand anything. Let them write, because they look in the mirror and write about their own selves.

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. ;)
