Changing the homepage user interface to an HTML page

Hello,

I want to change the design of the homepage to an external .html page with link to the login route of my erpnext installation.

if i already have the html page how do i link it to the erpnext install.

hi Oasis ,
you can make new app and change the www folder to overwite the base and web pages
this how i change the home page before login to frappe or erpnext

Hi Ahmad,

After adding my webpage files into www of my app how do i point it to the index?

kr,
Oasis

sorry Oasis i didn’t understand you,
but the answer to your question will reveal if you read base.html , and web.html
base it the parent for all the pages , web.html extends it … the blocks in jnja of blade for php … to organised your pages … read them you will be able to do whatever you want then :smiley:

I meant if i add my webfiles in www of the app how do i set them as index so that when i call my site they get launched first

this is the templates path

you can see both base.html and web. html
in base.html it contain header footer and there is a Block content tag and its empty .
and in web.html
they extends the Base.html and write the block content …
the first page loads is web.html … if you change it it will change in the website …(only content ) header and footer remain the same , if you want to change them you need to make change to base.html

if you make new app … you don’t have to make changes to frappe or erpnext …
just write what you need in www folder or template folder … and make it’s name web.html
and it will show up … also if you change the web.html content you can see your changes

this is a foodline frappe app … i made for a friend of mine … it’s just a simple app …

you can see the www folder and what i made also you can dowload it and use it beside frappe …
you don’t need erpnext just foodline app and frappe and you can learn alot from it …

Where are the images supposed to be stored so that when the app loads the webpage it retrieves them?

put everything under www as suggested by @ahmadRagheb Actually if you copy your all your website files (HTML, CSS, IMG) it will just work

I did put the files in the same folder as the html page but they are still not accessible i think images… have to be stored in some directories like /public or something

Hello,
Trying to follow your instruction.
I cloned the food line folder (actually linefeed)
I then tried to install the app in my existing respite but it says app not found.
I am definitely doing something wrong.

Can you advise me please?

Regards,
Taiwo

Hello,

Thanks so much for the support. I really appreciate your time.
will check. I would like to see how this works. Frappe looks awesome. Just time to learn it.

By the way, I am having an issue with customers wh sign to erpnext. They cannot place orders. It asks for address but it seems to report a permission issue. What could be going on?

Working on it now.

Thanks a lot.

@tiwiex welcome to frappe … you can start a new topic in the discuss and if you can describe it more clear with images and more details all member here will help you

i just reinstalled. i must have missed a step. that installation was awefully buggy. Thank goodness i did another setup. You can help me by … sharing something a bit more comprehensive on writing codes and utilizing the framework;s API effectively.

Thanks.

Not sure this is a huge error but just trying it out. see installation log below.
