Message # 1 | 8:49 AM
How can I switch the home page link, I want it to go directly to the recent messages on the forum. How can that be done...I know it can.

P.S: Not the informers recent threads, but the actual recent messages page seen as a link on the forum pages.

Expert1510, this is done through simply changing the URL of the home page link to;

Quote
http://site.ucoz.com/forum/0-0-1-34


Hope this helps, happy

How can I switch the home page URL though, I don't think there is options to do that.

Expert1510, what is your site address? You should be able to change it in the site menu builder if not design customisation.

I don't know how to switch it, also I don't see how it can be switched on site menu builder.

Thanks for helping.

I;m sorry but is the home page link the link going to the forum? If it is open Control Panel > Design customisation > Top part of the website.

Then find this in the code:

Code
<TD class=topMenu background=/.s/t/121/2.gif width="8%" align=middle onmouseout="chbg(this,0);" onmouseover="chbg(this,1);"><A class=menu1 href="http://challengeforum.ucoz.com/"><!--<s5176>--><B>Forums</B><!--</s>--></A></TD>


And paste this over it

Code
<TD class=topMenu background=/.s/t/121/2.gif width="8%" align=middle onmouseout="chbg(this,0);" onmouseover="chbg(this,1);"><A class=menu1 href="http://challengeforum.ucoz.com/forum/0-0-1-34"><!--<s5176>--><B>Forums</B><!--</s>--></A></TD>


Hope this helps, happy

Expert1510, I suggest you select Main page in "When opening the main page, redirect to" section of your Control panel Common settings first. Then embed the redirect code in the Home page and click Save. The redirect code looks like this:
Code
<script type="text/javascript">
  $(document).ready(function(){
  window.location.replace("/forum/0-0-1-34");
  });
  </script>

It should be put into the template of Home page in HTML mode. You will find it in CP->Page Editor->Home page->edit button in the shape of a screwdriver.

Hey, thanks a lot...but one more little problem. It redirects to the recent threads, but it still shows the home page for about 1 second or 2. Any way to fix it.

Not really. All you can do is to create your Home page as a blank page (absolutely white page) so no one will understand it as a page even.
