If you want to change the default page displayed when accessing your Block, you can do so in the Control Panel:

  1. Click the settings cog in the top right of the navigation

  2. Click the Advanced tab at the top of the page

  3. Under the Choose a Start Page section, select a new start page from the dropdown menu.

You will be provided with a number of options:



Learner's Block Welcome Page

File Manager

The users version of the File Manager


The users access to the Library through the File Manager


The files hosted in the Website folder

Application Store App

An application which you have installed on your Block via the Application Store

Custom Start Page

An option to specify your own URL.

Include only the path you want to point to. For example, entering my-site/index.htmlwill forward users to http://%%hostname%%.local/my-site/index.html.

To specify a port, enter a colon followed by the port number: :8787.
