    Below is what I'm trying to do:
    • Set a node page as the home page.
    • Make site.com/ go to the home page.
    • Make site.com/forum go to the forum.
    • Have the home tab selected in the navigation when on the home page.
    • Have the home page include the sidebar the same as on the forum.
    I've been trying to do this fore quite some time with no luck. What I currently have is.
    • A node page that I want to be the home page, however when you go there the url is /pages/home/ and going to the root of the site takes you to the forum.
    • The home tab is not selected on the home page.
    • The sidebar only shows the first section with the user info.
    • site.com/forum redirects you to site.com
    Anyone know how to go about accomplishing this? *sigh*

    Thanks, I tried that but I don't seem to see anything changed.
    PHP:
    <?php
    class Renari_CustomIndex_Listener
    {
        public static function 
    initDependencies(XenForo_Dependencies_Abstract $dependencies, array $data)
        {
            if (!
    $dependencies instanceof XenForo_Dependencies_Public)
            {
                return;
            }
     
            
    $config = new Zend_Config(array(
                
    'routePrefix'     => 'pages',
                
    'controllerClass' => 'XenForo_ControllerPublic_Page',
                
    'params'          => array('node_name' => 'home'),
            ));
     
            
    GeekPoint_CustomIndex_Helper::setDefaultRoute($config$data);
        }
    }
    ?>
    When I go to /pages/home nothing changes and the forum is still the main path.

    Nevermind, fixed it.

    Strange, I set this up on a dev copy and it worked fine. Exported it and copied all the files over installing it on a live site and now going to /pages/home simply puts you back at the root which is the forums. Making the /pages/home page inaccessible.

    It was conflicting with route changer. Disabling that fixed the problem.
