View Full Version : tiled thumbnail images as home page
10-30-2007, 12:48 PM
Can someone please advise if it is possible to make my pixelpost homepage instead of images_template style (single image) to browse_template style (tiled thumbnails)?
I tried renaming browse_template to image_template, but this gives empty page apart from header content. I also tried editing index.php file reference from image_template to browse_template. This gave same result as above.
I want to show all pictures taken as opening screen when people visit my homepage at year end (temporarily).

The easiest way to do this, is to create an index.html file in the same folder where pixelpost is installed.
In the index.html file, add a META redirect to direct people to your browse page.
<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0;url=http://example.com/index.php?x=browse"/>

Thanks for your response. Note that I tried your suggestion, but it did not do the trick. Probably I misunderstood.
I created index.html file with (personal) redirect and placed this file also where my index.php file is located. I guess here is where things go wrong.
If I type my homepage http://eburn.nl then I get my normal screen. Only if I type http://eburn.nl/index.html redirect works, but I would like people to be redirected from my homepage, since they have this one.
How best to resolve this?

Use .htaccess to redirect.

Ok, this can easily be fixed.
Create a file called .htaccess (yes that is a period at the beginning) in the same folder as the index.html file. (providing that the file doesn't already exits)
And put this text at the top and save it:
DirectoryIndex index.html index.htm index.php
This should solve the problem.
