Set Portal to be Default

Post by Lance » 2. February 2017 09:00

For installations in phpBB 3.0.x, I was able to set portal.php to be the default page on my server. So if you navigated to www.mydomain.com/forums/ the portal would be shown.

Is there any way to do that now that portal.php is no longer used?

Here we go:
  • go in the ACP - General - Board Settings - and adapt your settings accordingly:
    Board_settings.png
  • navigate to the directory root/ext/board3/portal/styles/prosilver/template/event/ and delete those two files:
    overall_header_breadcrumb_prepend.html and overall_footer_breadcrumb_prepend.html
  • add to your .htaccess this:

    Code: Select all

    DirectoryIndex app.php/portal index.php index.html index.htm
  • purge your forum and browser cache
Then it should look and function like here.

Thanks! That did the trick.

But let me ask you: It seems like just the modification to .htaccess did the job. What is the purpose of changing the settings and deleting the files?

ETA: Never mind. I see it now.

Thanks again!

Hi Keven
I did this but when I delete
overall_header_breadcrumb_prepend.html and overall_footer_breadcrumb_prepend.html
It locks me out with errors, but if I don't delete those files it works,

it wasn't explained above, what happens if I don't delete those files ?

In the "ACP -> General" --> purge cache
It's recommended to purge your browser cache too.
