Replacing Frontpage with a special Flexicontent Category

6 years 7 months ago #18288 by ggppdk
It is possible to create a Flexicontent category to replace the frontpage (com_frontpage). Like this:

1. Create a category e.g. called "Frontpage Items".

2. Go the the (SYSTEM) FLEXIcontent advanced route plugin and select this category to be excluded from routing (=meaning no links will be created to it, e.g. when displaying the categories of an item this category will not be listed)

3. Duplicate the blog template as a new template "frontpageblog" and assign it to the category "Frontpage Items"

4. If needed, edit the files of this new template (particularly the category*.php files) to customize them.

5. Assign the items you wish to appear in the frontpage to this category. Of course the items will be assigned to both the "Frontpage Items" category and their normal category(-ies) (use CTRL-click to select)

6. Create a --new-- menu link that points to the category "Frontpage Items" and set it as --default-- so that it becomes your home page.
