For example, I am using the module nodebb-plugin-custom-pages and created a page called home.tpl and route /home, now if I change home page to a custom url /home and navigate to home page, it opens up /home but it is still visible in url. While setting it up to popular, /popular does not show up in url.
Change "Home" Page
is it possible to redirect user to "Login Page" or Cover Page which leads then to "Login" instead of showing categories.
Maybe this are only visible for registered users ...
Not as yet. Later on, we'll add the capability to "hide" categories from users who aren't in a user group. For now, this is not doable yet.
