Changing the dashboard

Post by jafo »

Is there a way to either override the dashboard in the theme or configure the dashboard to point to a completely different "view"?

Thanks,
Brian

I've moved this into the Theming area, as that's what it's about. To have a different view for the dashboard, you'd need to create a theme plugin (described elsewhere) and implement a new Template/People/splash.ctp; this might use some or none of the existing elements that comprise the current version. Or if you just wanted to replace certain parts of that page, you could implement new versions of just the element(s) in question.

Thanks for moving this. Yes, this would definitely be a theme item. Really appreciate the help and guidance.
