Multiple sites in MojoPortal with custom index pages

Hello,

I have multiple websites on a single mojoportal installation.

But now,one client wants to have his own custom index.html page instead of using mojoportal's default page. Is there any way I can achieve this?

This is only for one paticular site

 

Thank you.

Re: Multiple sites in MojoPortal with custom index pages

If you are using multiple sites based on folder names, this might be theoretically possible by playing with the default document order, but I certainly wouldn't recommend it. It sounds more like a case where the client is overly comfortable with HTML pages, and just needs to be better educated about the CMS environment, and shown that whatever he wants to accomplish with an HTML page can be done better and will be much more maintainable within mojoPortal.

Re: Multiple sites in MojoPortal with custom index pages

Hi,

I fully agree with what Jamie posted.

I need to point out that one shouldn't use the multiple-sites feature to host websites for multiple clients. The reason is that a client may decide they want to move to different hosting or their site grows to require dedicated hosting. There is not an easy way to extract one site from all of the others which means if the client is given the database containing their site, they will also have the data for all of the other clients using that database. This is not a good thing at all.

The Multiple Sites feature was developed to make it easier for a site owner to host multiple sites with one code-base but not to necessarily make it cheaper for developers to host multiple client sites.

Thanks,
Joe D.
