|Administering the Community / Customizing the Home Page|
Home is an optional page that you can configure with a variety of widgets. The configuration options you enable will reflect the needs and use cases of your particular community.
|Enable the main navigation Create menu||Enabling this setting allows users to create a variety of content, such as discussions and documents, in the community. This option is helpful for communities focused on content creation and sharing, for example, a community focused on employees getting work done together. Be sure to read Enabling the Create Menu to learn more about this feature.|
|Enable the widgetized community home page||
|Simple home page||Enabling this will remove the left sidebar that includes links to Inbox and Actions. This option is helpful if you want to de-emphasize the participatory and collaborative features of the application and focus more on content consumption, for example, in a customer or partner support community where people are typically trying to find answers to questions.|
If you want to choose a different community page as the default for all users, you can use the skin.default.landingpage system property to set it to any of the Home pages. Check the URL of the target page for the correct value. For example, to set the default page to Activity, set the value to /activity.
This section calls out a few widgets that are commonly used on the Home page, but you have more options. See the Available Widgets Reference for more information.
