No worries. I should have linked to instructions here too! There is a nice illustrated set of instructions you can check out here. It’s possible you might be on the latest version of Discourse, in which case the UX for themes and components has changed a little. Let me know if the instructions I linked to still leave you a little lost. I’d be happy to help you figure it out.
By the way, the topic below is the home of this theme component now:
Fab, getting there! Making it a component works, but when I add it to my theme it adds a component with the others but there’s no text for the link, but the (x) button is there. The link it produces ends in a # where the others don’t??
and it doesn’t seem to work!!
Ah yeah, I think that might be a little bug that’s still getting worked out. Try refreshing the page, then click the (x) if that blank theme component is still there, then try selecting the Force Mobile Homepage component again. You might also try selecting another theme component from the dropdown list, then open the list again and select the Force Mobile Homepage component again. Click the “add” button and hopefully that should do it!
Would it be possible to have this feature per user basis? Like each user being able to choose their default page on mobile in their interface preferences (there’s already a general one there, we would only need one for mobile-only).
I’m currently having the same issue: on desktop I prefer to have the categories view in which I have the latest topic on the right side. On Mobile the categories view only show the categories. On mobile I would prefer to have the “last” topic changes view.
It would be great to have 2 preferences:
default home page on desktop: [ selection field]
default home page on mobile: [ selection field]
Is this something for which a PR would be accepted?
