adding a new page "master"

Hi, i'm running version 2.3.3.2

actualy I have a portal with  multiple sites  based on folder (running in medium trust):

- site1 (master in italian)

- site 2 (in english)

- site 3 (in chinese... in development)

they are all connected with flags

========================

I've been asked to put a new default page (at the top level, says  www.itawan.it) with only a flash page from witch you can select  the language site preferred.

PANIC.....

========================

do I have to create a new sub site, and declare it to be the parent one in web config ?..

but if I do so documentation refers that all configuratione (as for exsisting registred users) will be keept on the parent site (they are acctualy on the italian site witch is at now the parent site) do I will loose something ??

and if this is the way... the procedure will be:

1) creat a new subsite (lets say site 4)

2) change in user config

<add key="UseRelatedSiteMode" value="true" />
<add key="RelatedSiteID" value="4" />

... missed somethig ??

thank in advance

michele

Re: adding a new page "master"

Michele,

The easiest way to do this is:

1) Create a skin that shows nothing except the main content area. No header, menu, footer, etc...

2) Create a new page in your master site (Italian), set it's Parent to Root, Uncheck Include In Menu, and set it's Skin to the skin you created in Step 1.

3) Go to Administration > Add/Edit Pages and move the page you created in Step 2 to the top of the list. To do this click on the page and then click the UP arrow icon until the page is directly below the first page (Itawan) in the list. Now, select the first page (Itawan) and click the DOWN arrow icon.

This will make the new page the default page and visitors to your site will see the flash intro that you put on the page. You don't have to change anything with the other sites or RelatedSitesMode.

Ciao,
Joe D.

This is a good tip. By the way, how to make a page with something like " remember this selection" . If the user choose English site, next time, it will be directed to the English site directly.
