and

 

http://nintendopipeline.net/

 

should both redirect to

 

http://nintendopipeline.net/forum/

 

until the homepage is done. It will literally take a few seconds to do and undo. There is no excuse to have a 403 as a home page. Its just sad.

Along those lines, why is there a "Nintendo Pipeline" button in the navigation bar? It seems kind of pointless.

We currently don't have any plans for a homepage because we can't think of any use for one. Even back when the NP did have a homepage, everyone just bookmarked the main forum index so it was hardly ever used at all.

 

I'll look into making those pages redirect automatically right away instead of having a person wait a couple seconds.

I always kept in in there because I thought it looks nice. I can take it out for a bit and see how it looks though.

The only problem with it is that it links to a page that doesn't really have a purpose. Maybe if it linked to the forum and the forum link were removed it'd be fine.

 

But then again, the name of the site is already up there in the logo so maybe having both is redundant. :oop:

I really suggest that if you plan to keep the Nintendo Pipeline button. You should deactivate the clickability of the button and add a colon to the end of the text string. It'd make it look like "You are in Nintendo Pipeline, here are the buttons to navigate it."

Well I've removed the Nintendo Pipeline link, so I'll see what people think. If there isn't any hate, I guess I'll keep it this way.

Aw but it was intentional. :'D

 

Anyways, try this. It'll be temporary until a real homepage can be thought-up/made.

Actually I wasn't, but I could do it now. Doesn't really take long to do.

Okay that works; guess I guessed wrong since I saw you were in the ACP after reading Tai's post, and it's not really best if two people are making changes to the same thing so I decided not to touch anything.

I was working on the pipe_crim skin (which is close-ish to done anyways).

Also, I'm having trouble finding out where to access the homepage. :v

It should be "Other Apps" -> "IPS Content" -> "Page Manager"

Then from there you can click on index.php

Yay, learning more of where everything is in the ACP. Thanks!

Also, homepage now redirects to the forums.
