Why does Wedge look different for me?
« on January 10th, 2013, 03:52 PM »
So from day 1 I installed Wedge 0.1 Alpha 2 I've noticed that the layout hasn't looked the way it supposed. I never really bothered to report it because I thought it was supposed to look that way being an Alpha in it's early stage but then I look at fellow member Powerbob's site and see that it's not supposed to look that way so what's up with this? Here's a link to my test server?

Look at the board indexes, they look the same. As I already said, there are two different templates, Bob is using one, you're using the other.

Look through the posts for where I explained Welcome vs Home, I'm not at home right now to look up the right setting to change.

It's a hidden admin setting. Go to phpmyadmin, edit the settings table, replace default_index (I think that's the variable name) to Home. Then voilà, you get your Wedge.org-style homepage. IIRC :P

Yeah, that's the one. I didn't have that information handy when I was on my mobile.

Also, there will likely be complaints about a lack of Home.english language file, must fix that.

Well, yeah, there's still a lot to fix and everything, it's just that it's the kind of thing that can be done anytime, like, "okay enough people are complaining, I'll do that now...", right now I'm... not exactly the kind of guy who enjoys working on the UI and UX aspects really. I did that for Aeva Media and it was already taxing, but with Wedge it's such a bigger codebase... My priority if I started working on 'annoying things' would probably be writing the documentation for Wess and stuff like that...

So let me get this straight; I open phpMyAdmin > click on DB that Wedge is running on > and run the above SQL query. Correct?
Edit: I did that and got this error: "You have to choose at least one column to display". I'm probably not doing it right. I should have you know that my knowledge of SQL DBs is nil.

No... you open phpMyAdmin, click on the database, find wedge_settings, then go through the wedge_settings table until you find a row where the 'variable' column has an entry of 'default_index', then you click on the edit button for that row and change the value from Welcome to Home.

I thought I'd try this myself too. :whistle:

And yay! it works just fine! (well, apart from the Home.english glitch!)

Kudos :cool:
