Make the site name link to a custom page while keeping Categories as the root breadcrumb for the forum?

Solved Technical Support
  • I have set my forum's homepage to be a custom static page. I would like the site logo to point to this page, and for it to be 'home'. Setting this up in the ACP went fine.

    However, I want the header breadcrumb of the forum to still point to 'Categories' at the root instead of the new home page.

    I tried a grep -rl "breadcrumb" ./ to locate it, but I haven't been able to find where this is actually defined. Should I be looking at breadcrumbs.tpl in the theme I'm using? I'm fairly new to this, and not very familiar with the file structure of the software.

    Is there a way to change this?

    Thanks for any help!

    EDIT (2015-11-07)

    I got the site logo and the breadcrumbs working the way I wanted. I didn't realize you could set a custom url for the logo image. Now the logo goes to the custom home page and the breadcrumbs lead to the categories.

    The problem is now limited to the site name next to the logo. It still leads to the categories page, but I want it to point to the home page like the logo image. I haven't found a way in the ACP to change this. Can I change it somewhere in the code?

  • Sounds like a bug in the theme tbh. The logo and title should point to the same page imo.

  • How you defined the custom page?

  • I'm using the Persona theme, and I set the logo url in the ACP under Settings > General > Site Logo.

    I defined the custom page using the nodebb-plugin-custom-pages plugin.

    I set the homepage to point to Categories, but this seems to effect the site title separately from the logo.


    In case anyone else has this problem, here's where I found what I needed.

    File: /nodebb/src/controllers/helpers.js
    Methods: buildCategoryBreadcrumbs and buildBreadcrumbs

    Editing those allowed me to get the behavior I was looking for. Although, I would be curious to know if there is a better way to do this without changing the source code.
