Custom Home Path for ChiliProject

This plugins allows you to redirect users from the ChiliProject home page to any other path. This might be useful, if you are using ChiliProject as a kind of CMS and would like to customize the first page, your users will see.

Something similar is traditionally done on as well as where the home page is in fact a special wiki page. That however is accomplished by special settings within the web servers, that are running these sites.


After installation (see instructions below) you may go to Adminstration -> Plugins -> Custom Home Path for ChiliProject - Configure. There you may enter a path or URL where visitors of your ChiliProject's home page should be redirected to. This may be something like /my/page, /issues or /projects/foo/wiki/Start. After saving the setting, the redirect is immediately active.

If you want to deactivate the redirect, clear the Path setting.
