My 2 paisas

Posts Tagged ‘#redmine

After installing Redmine on the server, I wanted the default home page when to be shown as the home page of my project and not the complete redmine directory. After searching for a while, I found that it can be dome by doing necessary changes in routes.rb file in the config directory. Then I asked it in #redmine channel on freenode server in IRC. And I found the solution there thanks to “relaxdiego”.
I have copied the chat here so that I dont miss anything that was pointed out by him(Also I am too lazy to write it all again).

viggy_prabhu> relaxdiego, hope you got my doubt?
relaxdiego> what’s your project’s id?
relaxdiego> map.home ”, :controller => ‘projects’, :action => ‘show’, :project_id => (your project’s id)
* kibaho1 (n=pelamm@gw.tietoteema.fi) has joined #redmine

viggy_prabhu> map.home ”, :controller => ‘projects’, :action => ‘show’, :project_id => ‘myproject’
relaxdiego> sorry, i think i got it wrong
relaxdiego> this works for me –> map.home ”, :controller => ‘projects’, :action => ‘show’, :id => (project id)
viggy_prabhu> relaxdiego, finally it is working
