Hi Aleš,

Unfortunately you cannot set a category as a homepage. As you’ve already stated, the Confluence admin setting only allow for spaces to be specified as a homepage. A workaround could be to specify a space homepage, and from there use a redirection macro to forward the user to your desired category url. This way you could have a category as a homepage, event if it’s in two steps.



Hi Dennis,

That is sad :( Because category is homepage of intranet. And I cant have a blank redirecting space. What do you think, is it possible to set it in DB somewhere?

Thank you for advice :)
