stella12 Does anyone know if there is a problem with group homepages? tw v1.8.2
stella12 I cannot get group homepage to work.
I add the home page "http://www.etc.net.nz/tiki-index.php?page=Sonya+Page" to the sonya group
I set "Use group homepages" to yes and...
I also have "Use URI as Home Page" set to yes with URI = "http://www.etc.net.nz/tiki-index.php?page=Welcome"
The user is a member of the sonya group and annoymous
Annoymous group also has a homepage ...which doesn't work either?
Any ideas pointers please:)
damian what a lot let me get my reading specs ;)
teedog me too, since that's my feature
damian under admin->groups have you set the default group
stella12 sorry I cannot see how to set default group
teedog me neither lol
damian maybe thats in 1.9 then
teedog i'm looking in 1.9 and there's no default group. what do you mean by a default group?
damian ah sorry under Admin->users
damian click the key
damian the bottom row says Default Group with a dropy down box
teedog hmm is this missing from 1.9?
stella12 got it...yes the default group is set
damian did you click the set button, even though it shows a group in there if you haven’t clicked set its a null value
teedog nevermind me. i found default group
stella12 yes I have tried that but still no joy
damian mmm, ok try just Sonya+Page as the group value
damian I dont think full url works
stella12 ok - The group home page works if the user clicks on Home in app menu
stella12 However they remain on the "URI as Home Page" after they login
teedog that sounds like a familiar bug
stella12 Ok it appear that the group homepage has a bug/issue
The group home page works if the user clicks on Home in app menu
However they remain on the "URI as Home Page page" after they login
damian if URI as homepage is disabled what happens, I know people with the group homes working
stella12 if URI as homepage is disabled what happens - just goes to wiki or custom or article depending on what is selected
stella12 Oh yeah and when they login the group homepage comes up
damian yep. so set the admin->General to WIKI homepage and on admin->Wiki set the anonymous wiki page
damian in the Wiki Home Page box
damian and you have it all
stella12 Yaaay - we should doc these things aye
