My b2evolution Version: 1.10.x
I have spent most of the day scanning through the docs pages and the Forums with out much success finding help to customize the b2evolution to the way I was hoping for. I looked through the configuration webpages as well, a lot of this I am not sure what it is going to do if changed.
I seem I am over my head. The three big things I would like to do but can't figure out is the following:
1. Have the login page as the default page
Found this, but the link is no longer there.
"Q. Can I have the login page be the default page for my blog so users have to login to view the blog?
A. The following forum posts (1, 2) have an in-depth discussion of using the login page in this manner. "
by the way this would be useful, but no such director exists.
"Q. How do I customize the login page?
A. You can edit the login page by editing the /admin/???????.php file on your server. "
2. I think I figured out how to set the default Blog. I wouldn't count on it the way things are going today. :-/ What I did was delete the existing messages. and set the 'B' blog as default.
What I would like to do is add a link on the page so anybody who logins could add a new message (or category?).
3. How do I modify the side bar?
Sorry if the questions have been addressed, but I could not find after doing searches. I did find answers to other questions.
