I would like a way to give individual users the ability to have any page as their home page.
Currently, we can set the default homepage to be one of several views, and users can personalise this:
Using a plugin by @syl, the default home page can be any page within the Discourse instance:
Alternatively, using a theme component by @pfaffman can allow you to use any page:
In our login-only instances, we have groups that almost exclusively use the instance for their own private category. I’d like to make that category their homepage. There are a whole bunch of potential groups like this, each with their own category. This is an alternative to having an unmanageable number of instances, and will still allow access to the wider forum when needed.
The way forwards
What would be the best way to get this done on a per-user basis, combining the existing per-user functionality with the ability to use alternate pages?
Doing this per group (such as @neil’s Groups can set category and tag notification levels) would be absolutely lovely.
