See when i type rangers online loyal into google it gives me a link to my forum,

when i click on the link it takes me here

http://rangersonlineloyal.co.uk/index.php?component=indexpage

now this is just a page with nothing on it, it looks a mess to potential new users, i cant see how i can change the style of this page as i cannot find anything on the admin panel showing me anything from component=indexpage

i want new users to see this page

http://rangersonlineloyal.co.uk/index.php

which is the same as above without the ?component=indexpage after it

please advise as this is beginning to do my head in before a night shift.

Something like this is more common.

In portal settings/Options/Portal I have "STICKY" what do you have?
perthtruebluetwo

In portal settings

then options portal

i have FRONTPAGE

What then should it be admin ?
myff admin

I have STICKY

Frontpage is more complicated! You might want to do a little searching on the HOWTODOIT forum.
perthtruebluetwo

so is there no way to have people who are clicking on my link on google to go here


http://rangersonlineloyal.co.uk/index.php

rather than

http://rangersonlineloyal.co.uk/index.php?component=indexpage

because even in the options portal changing FRONTPAGE to WEBPAGE or STICKY changes nothing.

Well if the google link is explicitly to to that page, then we can't alter that fact.

But you really should be able to fix the page.

You may want to delete things like the cms_frontpage.tpl template file in your template editor to revert it to default.

You cant delete things like cms_frontpage.tpl, as there is no option too,you cant even remove all text and leave it blank as it just returns when you hit submit.

my hatred of phpbb3 grows more and more each passing day,

oh how i long for my old phpbb2 board.

Can the component indexpage not just be removed i cant beleive im having this silly problem,

i just want new users to see one page rather than this silly looking component indexpage.

Yes I would like that to get rid  of this Problem please.
myff admin

I have taken a look and I think the primary problem is that portals like LATEST will only see what a guest can see.
So if you try and use portals in cms_indexbody.tpl the cupboard is going to be bare.

I think you either need to open up things a bit or put a manual intro page into cms_indexbody,.tpl
