Custom html on home page


(Martis Genus) #1

Hey guys,
Thanks for creating such a great product. I really love discourse!
What I’m currently missing is an easy way to add custom HTML to the home page without writing a plugin. It would be great to have something like you did with “Content -> Top of the pages” and “Content -> Bottom of the pages” but for the home page (“Content -> Bottom of the home page”).
I kind of see the problem of adding too many sections, but on the other site it’s kind of important to be able to customize home. What do you think?

With a busy forum, content placed there is unlikely to be seen unless it’s fixed above the content, at which point you risk hiding UI elements like the composer.

What do you define as the “home page”? The page someone sees when they sign in can be different depending on how long someone has been signed up. (e.g. /latest vs. /top)

Also, in case it helps, see the dismissable banner topic you can add for new users:
