  • [CMS] Default Page

    Hi all,

    I have my full CMS suite installed in the root of my domain however I have created a page called welcome.htm.

    Right now when someone visits my site they go right to the CMS new page, index.php

    How do I make welcome.htm my default page. I also use VBSEO 3.5 with my vBul4.04 suite.

    Many Thanks

    Have you looked into using .htaccess to do this? It is probably one of the easier ways to do this.

    If I post CSS and you don't know where it goes, throw it into the additional.css template.

      I have indeed thought about it but have no idea how to write it LOL. While I can work stuff out with a GUI, I am no coder. I am trying to learn though. I am using a htaccess file for VBSEO but they set that up as they had problems getting my VBSEO to work.

      Do you know the line a of code that needs to be added? I am with godaddy an I understand they can be a pain with this stuff.

        I'm a trial and error coder, so I can't write the exact code for you, but google has lots on redirect and htaccess, like this:How do I redirect my site using a .htaccess file?

          Use this:
          Code:
          DirectoryIndex welcome.html welcome.htm index.html index.htm index.php index.cgi

            Hey thanks guys, I really appreciate the help. Sjould I use that code in its entirety and will it still work with my VBSEO setup?

            I know these questions seem obvious but I am learning so please bear with me.

              Put it at beginning of your .htaccess file.
              It should work without problems with vBSEO.

                  Ok so I tried it and it worked great with one problem, even if I have the "enter site" link pointing to southeastsxs.com/index.php it still brings me be back welcome.htm. I removed the lines you added for index.php to see if that was the problem but no good.

                  Would it be better if I posted my htaccess file contents for you to see? or is it a simple answer?

                  Many Thanks,
