Custom page as homepage - Richard_Prime - 2015-02-17

Hi, I would like to make the custom page I have created as my homepage since its a welcoming page for visitors to see. And my custom page's php file is in the root directory.

Thanks,
Richard

Add to .htaccess:

Redirect / www.yourdomain.com/desiredpage.php

Should work.


RE: Custom page as homepage - Richard_Prime - 2015-02-17

where is this .htaccess?


RE: Custom page as homepage - Ben - 2015-02-17

In the root of your ftp. If there isn't a file there, create a new one.


RE: Custom page as homepage - Richard_Prime - 2015-02-17

There is two files of the same one is htaccess-ngnix.txt and the other is htaccess.txt


RE: Custom page as homepage - Ben - 2015-02-17

rename htaccess.txt to .htaccess and add the above code.

okay, so I have my custom page as my homepage. But now how do I add a new title on the header to direct my visitors/members to the forum page?

What are you using as your homepage? If it is not MyBB you won't be able to get support for that here.
