How can I enable and customize the Support Home page?
Customer Portal, End-user Pages
Within the Customer Portal (CP) end-user pages, the home.php file defines the functionality of the Support Home page. Staff whose profile allows access to the Customer Portal Studio can edit and customize the home.php file. This includes adding or removing widgets, text and features from the file.
The path to access the home.php file is: euf/development/views/pages.
The layout of the page is defined by the stylesheets used with your CP pages, which are accessed from the views/templates directory.
To disable the Support Home page in the CP pages: You must remove reference to the home.php file from other files and templates. In addition, you must set the default Home page to be another page in your CP pages.
- Remove references to the Home page. The default CP files include a tab for the Home page in the navigation bar. By default, the buttons across the top of the page is defined in the rn_standard.php and the rn_standard_account.php templates. Edit the templates to remove reference to the home.php file.
If you have customized other pages to link to the Home page, you must edit those files as well to remove the link to the home.php file.
- Set the default end-user page to be another page. Set the CP_HOME_URL configuration setting to another of your CP pages. Some widgets include a redirect function to Home page. By setting the default home page to another file, the user is directed to the page you define.
For example, you can set the CP_HOME_URL setting to answers/list so that when users log in, they are directed to the Answers List page by default.
The access this setting, select Configuration from the navigation area > Site Configuration > Configuration Settings > search by Key.
