Remove “Welcome!” section from splash page¶
Two methods to remove the auto-generated Welcome! section from root splash page.
In Plone 5, an auto-generated Welcome! section is created on a root splash page if its short name is “front-page”. This happens because of a Diazo theme rule tied with a condition to Plone’s default home page, something like this:
<!-- include view @@hero on homepage only --> <after css:theme="#mainnavigation-wrapper" css:content=".principal" href="/@@hero" css:if-content="body.template-document_view.section-front-page" />
Two ways to remove this section include:
1. Creating a new splash page with different name¶
- Simply add a new page in the root folder and give it a short name other than “front-page”. Easier yet: you can just rename default homepage’s shortname with
Edit > Settings.
- Upon saving this new page (or renaming old one), you can then press “Display” from the toolbar and select “Change content item as default view…”
- Finally select the radio button of your new page and press Save.
2. Duplicating theme and removing line of code¶
- Go to site setup
- Press “Theming”
- Press “Copy” on the Barceloneta theme, give it any short title and description and you can activate it now or later. Press Create.
- Click on “rules.xml” to open this file in the browser.
- Find and delete the rule mentioned above: <after css:theme=”#mainnavigation-wrapper” css:content=”.principal” href=”/@@hero” css:if-content=”body.template-document_view.section-front-page” />
Then to finish up…
- Press the blue “Save” button, then press “Back to control panel”.
- If you’ve not already activated it, press “Activate”, then “Clear Cache” on your new theme.
