I am using the Recruiter distribution and I want to find the path of the front page so as to add it to the 404 redirect settings of the site. However,there is no panel page as homepage.There is only used the context module that says if path=< front > then etc.Also I tried the path /node with no luck.

So how can I find the path of the homepage?


Recruiter Distribution, does not have a path where you can modify everything.

Everything is base on blocks and they are using the the Context module to display it.

  1. Menu that it can be modify at admin/structure/menu/manage/user-menu/

  2. Block The name of the region is called Banner. On the recruiter installation this block is blank.

  3. Views block. If you wish to modify search you can go to admin/structure/views/view/job_search/edit/search_page to modify the location you can go to the context module.

  4. Block That is blank on the Recruiter installation but is also a block and it can be modify at the context.

  5. Views Block the views can be modify at admin/structure/views/view/front_page_job_search and the location at the context module.

  6. Block That is blank on the Recruiter installation but is also a block and it can be modify at the context.

  7. Facets To modify the location you need to the context page and to modify the look you would need to used the Facet Api module.

The rest of the footer it suppose to be at context module and they are many blocks.

enter image description here

If you wish to have it on a path. You probably would need to uninstall the recruiter_front module and then you need to make sure that any of the blocks that are pointing the the front page are gone. At this post you should have an empty page. After that is going a default Drupal configuration. You can go to /admin/config/system/site-information and set a path that you wish.

  • Thank you for the answer. Is there a way to add the path of the frontpage to redirect the 404 page?

  • To redirect pages you can used the Redirect module. Mar 17 '15 at 15:39

You can define it at /admin/config/system/site-information. This is the value the <front> path uses.

UPDATE: The default frontpage after a fresh install appears to be /node as defined per /admin/config/system/site-information

  • Hi,the Default front page is empty :(

  • Then you might want to update your question with details about what repository you are using. There is probably a custom module there handling the frontpage somehow. Or, the frontpage is just defined as the url without suffix. Mar 17 '15 at 11:54
  • I don't use any repository,I have set up a local version of the recruiter distribution,not sure if this is of any help...

  • Apologies, I meant distribution. I wanted to take a look for you, but installation is slow. Mar 17 '15 at 12:31
  • Just checked a fresh install, but frontpage should be /node Mar 17 '15 at 13:13

what is your problem with this code

    global $base_url;
    print $base_url;

No matters what configuration is in system setting, it returns the address of front page.

  • Aha,thanks for the info.Is there any other way to redirect to homepage with the help of a module?

  • Install redirect module from drupal.org/project/redirect and in its configuration you may redirect to home page.

  • Hi Drupalist,I just installed Redirect module,however there is no configuration to redirect 404 pages automatically to frontpage,this needs to be done manually by selecting one by one 404 page.

  • Why don't you do this using .htaccess? from stackoverflow.com/questions/2363520/… I found it, use this code ErrorDocument 404 /index.php
