User preference for default home page


(Sam Saffron) #1

Users can now set their own preference for their homepage. If you’d rather land on New instead of Latest when going to forum.example.org you’ll want this setting.

Head to user preferences -> interface and select the home page you want

Implemented per: Remember the selected view / tab on homepage :heart: to @notriddle for implementing

This is awesome. I LOVE this. Thank you so much.

One bit of feedback - it looks like everyone’s default home page has now changed to LATEST on my site, even though we had CATEGORIES configured as the home page previously. New users are also getting LATEST by default instead of CATEGORIES. If I recall correctly, the default is set by the order of the top menu (first item on that list is the home page) which looks like this on my site:

Is it possible at this stage to change the default for everyone who has not chosen to change it from the site default? Or is this now lost and it defaults to LATEST for everyone who can then change it to CATEGORIES going forward?

That is just a ui bug, should be fixed soon

Is it fixed today by any chance? I saw some commits go through.
