Migration: Sharepoint Home Page

  Asked By: Loren    Date: Mar 29    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 11123

Hi everyone, we are migrating from SPS 2001 to 2003. In SPS 2001, we
used to have a simple .htm start page that people could click and it
would then take them into the sps portal site (after authenticating).
I want to be able to do the same with the new version. That is, if my
portal address was http://intranet.sample.com, it would first go to
a .htm page from which you can get to the portal by clicking a link.

The Default.aspx page  is created by SharePoint when the site is provisioned.
Using FrontPage 2003, you can create a Default.htm file in the root of your
SharePoint site. Put whatever content you like on this page including a link
to the Default.aspx page. However, the .htm file will be stored in the
SharePoint database, not on the hard drive. IIS is setup by default to
display a Default.htm, if it exists, before a Default.aspx. The home  link in
the Top Nav of your Site should still work because SharePoint uses a fully
qualified URL rather than just a slash to represent home.
