One of the things I find lacking in Confluence is the ability to set a common home page for an organization/implementation of confluence.
IOW, an intranet home page.
Sure we can create a space for that, but that is not discoverable like a home page would be. Ideally if someone went to ourdomain.atlassian.net they would get a site's home page, and from that page could be links to /jira/your-work
I think this is a feature request. Maybe a solution would be to create a HOME page and then a configuration that allows us to assign that space to the root domain?
Thank you for replying to my question.
> Just curious - why do you think a Space would be less discoverable than a page?
I think my question must have been unclear.
I am not so much asking for a page vs. a space, I was asking for the home page to appear at the root URL, e.g. at:
BTW, I would actually prefer to have an entire space pinned to the root URL vs. a single page. The point of the request is to have an intranet home page at the root URL.
Also, the discoverability I speak of is empowered specifically by the home page/space being at the root URL, vs. having to know what to search because it is hard to find some things on Confluence, especially for a large installation of Confluence, and having a curated home page would be helpful to new users.
> Hmm...thought you could do it in the Further Configuration - Site Homepage part of Confluence but it sure seems like you can only connect to Spaces.
I was unaware of this, and it sounds like it might meet my needs.
Would you (or someone else) mind sharing a screen shot in the admin showing how to configure this, and including the URL path in the admin in which is to located?
Thank you in advance.
@Mike_Schinkel I don't have any idea if this is what you're looking for, and I've never actually used it. I just stumbled across this setting the other day so it was near the top of my mind and when I saw your question I thought that maybe this solution would fit.
I'm a Confluence Admin for our company.
-I go to this location:
-Click Further Configuration on the left side.
-Click Edit. Part of the screen that appears includes this:
-Then, I'd make a selection in the Site Homepage dropdown. Like I said, I haven't done it yet, just thought about it.
Good luck, hope this helps.
@Mike_Schinkel You're welcome. Also saw this just a few minutes ago, which looks like the official documentation and provides more detail:
