When I visit 0.0.0.0:3000, my refinery-based website used to go to the
"Home" page, but it doesn't any more. Now it shows a message that "The
page you were looking for doesn't exist."

This started happening after I accidentally called rake db:reset on my
local database and had to re-enter all the page content by hand. Once
I set up the pages in refinery again, the pages work fine if I specify
them directly by url. (i.e. 0.0.0.0:3000/home or 0.0.0.0:3000/about),
but 0.0.0.0:3000 doesn't route to 0.0.0.0:3000/home any more, which is
the desired behavior.

Any ideas?

Here's what show's up in the terminal:

You need the homepage to "forward this page" to / under advanced options

Philip,

Do you mean set the "forward this page" setting on my "Home" page?
That wouldn't produce the effect I am looking for. I don't want to
forward traffic from 0.0.0.0:3000/home to 0.0.0.0:3000. I want to do
the opposite. I need Refinery to forward users from the root of my
site 0.0.0.0:3000 to 0.0.0.0:3000/home. So that when users go to my
site, they automatically go to the "Home" page that I have created.

It seems like it's some setting in the guts of refinery, perhaps in
the database, that I need to fix. Any ideas?

Jeremy

Thanks Philip.  It worked.  I don't understand how it worked, but it did.  Please someone explain how this makes sense, because my brain is going to melt. :)

Is this a predefined rule in Refinery, that if the Forward This Page option is set to "/" that Refinery knows to set that page to the home page?  Or is there a railsy explanation for this behavior?

Thanks,
Jeremy

Refinery pages extension is looking for a page with the url '/' to be the home page. So by telling the page titled "Home" that you want it to have the url '/' you're setting it as the definitive homepage as far as Refinery pages extension is concerned.

I see.  That makes sense.  Thanks for your help. :)
