    Your site is turned off so it's impossible for me to see this.

    Yes, but it still has the root "Home" breadcrumb visible, wheras the default home page from install doesn't.

    Is your new home page located at sitename.com ? (no page name)

    Custom home page and breadcrumbs

    Hi, I've successfully created a custom home page for a landing page from Mark.Bs tutorials:

    http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/articles/vbulletin-5-connect-aa/vbulletin-5-tutorials-aa/4025039-vb5-how-to-create-a-custom-home-page
    http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/artic...ar#post4025040

    However I have lost the default home page (the one that doesn't have any breadcrumbs at the top). Its not an issue but I would like the custom home page to be the actual home page in which it doesn't have the breadcrumb (home>) at the top. This is what my custom home page has for a breadcrumb...

    The default home page comes with an activity stream on it, so it makes sense navigating through from home > forum > etc. But when you set up a custom home page, this page is lost. Now it wouldn't be so bad if you could change the forum module to an activity stream module but its a system module and cannot be deleted. If I don't want the activity stream module on the custom home page then there isn't really anywhere else to put it. The breadcrumbs will always revert to the custom home page and not the default one.

    Is this something I can do in the CMS? Ideally, I would move the default home page up a level and have the new custom home page as the parent to the whole site.

    Oh, and unless its just they way I've done it, clicking on any of the forum subcategories now makes the navbar look like the custom home page is active, and not the forum page. When I click on latest posts, the latests posts page shows the navbar like below (instead of staying on forums):
