Change the default startup page from projects.html to welcome on login in Adobe CQ 5.6 and above
CQ5.6 introduced responsive layout and the landing page after logging into the author instance goes to the new touch friendly interface.
However, as a developer I prefer the old interface where I can quicky navigate to any of the options.
So to change the landing page post login in the Author instance to go to the welcome page here’s what you need to do
- Go to CRX Explorer Interface http://localhost:4502/crx/explorer/browser/index.jsp
- Navigate to the node /libs/cq/core/config.author/com.day.cq.commons.servlets.RootMappingServlet
- Right click the rootmapping.target property and select edit. Change the value to /welcome.html
- Click Save All
And you are done
