  • Articles as base entry point

    I just updated to 5.1.0 but soon to do a new install for a rebirth of the site.

    I have the package in my root directory on the site so my domain comes right into the vB package, however I do not want users to go directly to the forum I want the first thing they see to be Articles.
    I know this was possible in vB4 CMS but as yet have not been able to find how to set it for vB5, could someone please advise.

    Thanks in advance.

    You would go to your existing home page and click Site Builder > Edit Page > Save and change the URL to something like "home" > Save. Then go to your Articles page and click Site Builder > Edit Page > Save and change the URL to just *blank* > Save. You'll want to then go to admincp > Maintenance > Clear System Cache. You'll probably also want to use Site Builder to change the Navigation tab URLs also.
