making document library defaunt page of a site

Hi,

I would like to make doc library default page when enter site. Now default page is site dashbord.

I found tutorial how to remove site dashbord https://docs.alfresco.com/content-services/5.2/using/sites/#choosing-a-site-homepage. When I proceed all steps. get to site -> click settings -> click customize site. Then I would like to remove dashbord icon, But there is not that possibility.Capture.PNG

ussually people have one more icon (dashbord icon) in upper box. Is there a way how I can remove dashbord as a default and make document libarry as a default ?  Maybe is there a way how to do it through the code?

 

thanks.

Re: making document library defaunt page of a site

If i understand correctly, you are looking to set default page as "documentLibrary" when a user click on site you have created. Then you can do following:

1- Override the default site-preset and configure the primary page in case you are using the default collaboration site.

2- If you are creating custom preset based site, update the sitePages page property to point to documentLibrary by default.

Checkout this doc if you have to create a custom preset: https://docs.alfresco.com/content-services/6.2/develop/share-ext-points/site-presets/

Default site preset reference: https://github.com/Alfresco/share/blob/master/share/src/main/resources/alfresco/site-data/presets/pr...

This is the section you would need to update: https://github.com/Alfresco/share/blob/master/share/src/main/resources/alfresco/site-data/presets/pr...

So looks like this after update:

<pages>
         <page id="site/${siteid}/dashboard">
            <title>WhitePapers Site Dashboard</title>
            <title-id>page.whitePapers.title</title-id>
            <description>WhitePaper site's dashboard page</description>
            <description-id>page.whitePapers.description</description-id>
            <template-instance>dashboard-2-columns-wide-right</template-instance>
            <authentication>user</authentication>
            <properties>
               <sitePages>[{"pageId":"documentlibrary"}]</sitePages>
               <dashboardSitePage>true</dashboardSitePage>
            </properties>
         </page>
      </pages>

Re: making document library defaunt page of a site

Hi,

thanks for your answer. I tried to follow your steps. The problem occured when I tried to change presets.xml.

When I opend presets.xml file it was already modified. It looked like this.2.PNG in the tag <sitePages> was only docuemnt library, but when I look to alfresco share there was also dashboard and site members like this :1.PNG

Is there a explenation why it is not working how it should? 

 

Thanks.

Interesting, can you provide the steps how you updated the presets?

Hope you followed the docs :

Post this change, as soon as you click on site from list of sites, it would land you in document Library. DocumentLibrary will also be default selected if you go back

Re: making document library defaunt page of a site

Hi,

basiclly I looked into presets.xml  in destination : tomcat/webapps/share/WEB-INF/classes/alfresco/site-data/presets/presets.xml .

When I opened it presets.xml it looked like this:
