Changing Layout of the default home page in Publishing Root Web Site from Site definition

  Asked By: Uma    Date: Jan 13    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 4543

I have to customize the Layout of the default home page in Publishing Root Web Site from Site definition.

Currently default page is inheriting from WelcomeSplash.aspx, If someone can pass on the insight and reference to site definition code it will be great help.

Think of site  definitions as a burned CD - once you create them you should never modify them - doing so can have VERY unpredictable results with existing sites (depending of course on the nature of your modifications). Also, modifying those files is unsupported and will result in you losing support from Microsoft (of course from a technical perspective there are modifications that you can safely make but the loss of support is generally enough reason to not do it). And finally, any changes you make can be overwritten by service packs or hot fixes (unlikely but...).
