@tecy If you use the Persona Theme and nodebb-plugin-custom-pages you can set a homepage like this
If you want to enforce that across all of your users, just disable "Allow User Home Pages"
I asked a general question to upgrading from a minor branch here a while back: Re: Newbie Upgrade Question From v0.9.0
I am currently on v0.9.4 and was wondering do I need to do anything before hand to upgrade to the latest version of 1.x.x? I noticed v1.0.1 is the latest version as of this writing.
I always seem to have some form of problem whenever I upgrade to a newer version of NodeBB and just want to relieve myself of any worries before I attempt the upgrade.
