Changing the index/home page into a front page...
« on: July 14, 2016, 09:47:11 pm »

Hi guys


What do I mean?  I would like to have on the home page just a list of the latest uploaded albums so I can put on it more information and an intro... then when they hit album list up comes the album list only with none of the front info on it... if that makes any sense at all.  Like a website rather than a gallery.


Be aware I know html and CSS but not script of any kind.  Was just wondering if there was an easy way of doing it by inserting a new page and using a command in the {}


Thanks in advance

This is what I do on my personal gallery to have a welcome page. I created a .htaccess file with this content:
Code: [Select]
RewriteEngine on
RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^$ welcome.php[NC]

You need to put both files in your gallery root directory.

Either create a HTML file (and adjust your .htaccess file accordingly) or just put your HTML code in the PHP file.

Ok I have uploaded the 2 files and changed them but seeing no change in the gallery...I put both files into the root part of the gallery as well


This is the .htaccess file



Code: [Select]
RewriteEngine on
RewriteBase /
RewriteRule ^$ welcome.html[NC]


And that this is the welcome.html


Code: [Select]

You need to remove index.php from the URL.

If you want to use your Coppermine theme for your welcome page, please put this to your welcome.php file:
Code: [Select]
<?php define('IN_COPPERMINE'true); include('include/init.inc.php'); pageheader('Welcome'); ?>

Welcome to my gallery.

<?php pagefooter(); ?>
