Hey all - 

Still loving OCPortal.

I can't find the tutorial for creating an $is_guest Splash page.

Pretty much I want to have a popup for "Guests" to the website that will include a brief into flash movie.  I do want to include a "skip intro" and a caching option.

Someone point me in the direction?

Thanks,
Russ

PS: I use Google Chrome... anyway to change the right-click on the WYSIWYG editor to use the spellcheck option, it doesn't bring up the WYSIWYG right-click context menu?  Spellcheck is my life saver! :thumbs:

Rather than having a spash page it might be better for SEO reasons to have a if in group box which appear at the top of the content for guest users.

This basically puts a text box at the top of the text on the homepage that only appears for guest users.

I agree with Steven.  However, if you still want or need a splash type page and you're not too worrie about SEO results go to:  Admin Zone / Setup / Configuration / Site Options / General / Single public zone and uncheck that option; then save.  This will give you a true Welcome zone as wellas a Site zone.  Then you could hide the left and right panels on the Welcome zone, embed your video, or whatever else you needs require.
