Not really sure if this has been discussed before - and also not if this is more “feature request” or more “extensibility”. Since I feel this is something others might have considered, I wanted to ask you guys here: In my opinion, it would make major sense to send all anonymous traffic landing on my page directly to /categories instead of /latest.
For the registered users in my community, it makes more sense to show them what happened lately - but for the public, it’s much better to show them the structure of what’s going on. I could even imagine a (custom) profile setting for each user where they can specify where they want to land when they go to http://example.com - depending on their favourite mental structure either categories, or latest (or even unread or new or…).
I wonder if this can be easily (or not-so-easily) be achieved by a custom user script, plugin or extension of the core functionality?
