Guys i'm in a trouble with configuring this plugin. how can i set a custom page to guest views? i just want to redirect guests to my own designed page uploaded in root folder. lets name that file "welcome.php". I've tried as much as i can but all i get is 404 page. please give me a |How to Do| documentation. Thanks in advance.

    Welcome to the community!

    You should be able to specify welcome.php or any other route in the settings page.

  • You don't access views directly in MVC application. Is there is a good reason for a standalone script?

    The days you call individual script and add header and footer are well an truly over, and good riddance. Good security, you would only allow cgi through a single dispatcher, you can't necessarily trust random scripts.

    There are several custom page solutions for vanilla.

    A request enter the dispatcher is directed to the relevant controller, which determines how it is outputed, whether it be a view template or something. You are not going to output a request for json in the same way as you would a page request but they go through the same controller method.

    grep is your friend.

  • I just started with vanilla forums & don't know to do much customizations (I'm using self hosted forum).

    all i want to do is redirect every Non-logged users to a simple page that i created in my site's root folder.

    The current situation is, i have managed to config the plugin to redirect guest to the sign in page. but its redirect to sign in page only if user go to main domain. (

    if user navigate to a inside page ( it is still showing the page and doesn't redirect guest to the sign in page. how can i fix this?

    (sorry for my bad english & also I'm not a advanced php user. but i can manage to do changes if i get a step by step answer.)

  • this pluign is only routing the default controller internally it does not handle 301 redirects or anything outside of vanilla.

    you could route it to a faux location such as /welcome then 301 with vanilla routes from there.

    grep is your friend.
