Display Wiki by default

Added by GDR! GDR! at 2013-06-18 10:57 am

Is it possible to display Wiki as the default page for every project?

Let me stress, I don't want to see the Wiki instead of the "latest projects" page after I log in. I want to see Wiki by default, when I click on a project in Projects menu on the top.

Would that be doable without custom patching the code?

Not without custom code I think, sorry.

just a note - I use the plugin to modify the default home / start page for CP:

If you aren't a Ruby programmer, why not using simple Apache Redirect / RewriteRules?

e.g.: Opening a project page uses URLs like and

So an Apache RewriteRule could just redirect each of these URLs to (e.g.) the default Wiki page of the project:

RewriteEngine On
# Wiki instead of project overview:
RewriteRule ^projects/([^/]+)$$1/wiki [R,L]

But: This will hide the overview page!

If you need help getting it working, you can ask me here.

Yeah, this makes sense as a workaround. Thanks!

I'm not too good at Ruby, but I'd manage to write a patch. But the thing with patches is that they make upgrades hard, and I'd like to avoid that.
